Savannah Music Festival: Estrella Morente
Airs Thursday, January 21, at 8 p.m. The history of flamenco dates back to 1774 when it first began to appear in literature. With roots from Andalusia and the Romani people from Spain, its format usually involves singers, guitarists, dancers and the iconic sound of hand clapping. Most of the artists performing flamenco come from family traditions, including 33-year old cantoraEstrella Morente, heiress to one of Spain's greatest musical dynasties. In this episode, we listen to EstrellaMorente's Georgia debut at the 2014 Savannah Music Festival.
