:: Session Notes ::
1 - These recordings were made in the old San Agustín market, now being restored, Lomax describes the knife sharpener's panpipe as "eight notes, light blue plastic." It is rare to hear this type of street vendor cry now, except for some lottery vendors. Track 48 is dedicated to the sculptor Luís Heredía Maya, husband of La Faraona, featured in the previous session. Field log notes say it is composed by Enrique el Medina, and that Franca Hiojo also is part of the accompaniment. Several of the final tracks in the session are compositions of Angel Barrios, whose work was inspired by Andalusian folklore. It is unclear from the log and tape boxes whether the singers Antonio Fernández and Juan Rondón Román were recorded in Granada or in Guacín, Málaga, where the next session took place.
:: Recording Notes ::
0 - Many guitarists and dancers are judged on their abiities performing this genre.
:: Collection :: Spain 1952-1953
