JOSÉ MENESE, Singer from la Puebla de Cazalla (Sevilla)
Antonio Carrión, Flamenco guitar
When José Menese was 25 years old, his name already appeared in Spain’s “Who’s Who”, along with the list of his recordings and an explanation of his contribution to flamenco singing. His voice is round and full of profound undertones, he avoids vulgarity and limits his repertoire to the classic forms. He is one of the most knowledgeable singers in the history of flamenco, and has been the object of study and admiration by intellectuals, writers, poets and flamencologists such as Rafael Alberti, Fernando Quiñones, Blas de Otero, Ramón Chao, Félix Grande and Antonio Gala.
