El Llanto Se Mueve ‘The Cry Moves’
El llanto (the cry) is power: power that moves you. El llanto of a singer or a guitarist is capable of making you feel the most profound place of your inner self. El llanto makes you weep, fall in love. It makes you dance, dance with feeling. From el llanto comes ‘El Ole’ and ‘El Duende’. El llanto is pure, it is beauty, and it is sadness and suffering. El llanto is the mixture of cultures, identities, and it is history. It is the root, the beginning of everything flamenco. It is the voice of our ancestors, the voice of the indigenous people that came from India centuries ago: THE UNTOUCHABLES
