Soleá Choreography José Serrano Music Keko Baldomero Lyrics Rubio de Pruna, Keko Baldomero Dance José Serrano “In flamenco there are no masters, there are disciples, I belong to a generation in which there weren’t masters ... the best music to come from the school of flamenco has already been made, it has been made and it is different from that of current flamenco, the music that is being made at the moment. Of course, the artist really has to live in their surroundings, in the world in which they live ... I don’t think that art should have restrictions; art must have freedom, everything is possible, and what matters is the result ... flamenco at the same time that it’s becoming more and more universal, is also becoming bigger and bigger. We mustn’t be pessimistic, we must be optimistic and encourage the younger generation ... I much prefer being free than being tightly squeezed into a square-shaped peg that says nothing and passes nothing on to others...” ►► Enrique Morente X. Soleá por Bulería Choreography Sara Baras Music Keko Baldomero Lyrics Rubio de Pruna, Keko Baldomero Dance Sara Baras “Sometimes this pain also pleases your soul; its spirit pleases you because sometimes pain is also necessary for your soul.

Perhaps it’s also the gypsy people with all the suffering they carry on their backs, a suffering that they relieve themselves of through flamenco singing; they express their feelings through flamenco, and get rid of all their anger and feelings accumulated over so many years. I don’t think I’m too old; I’m not too old to be able to speak about this but what I speak about is that which I know; that’s why I speak with this certainty about what I have listened to and what I have seen and what I have lived through in the very short space of time that I have lived in flamenco, in my family, in my country. I speak about what I know and what I have lived through, what I know and what I have listened to…” ►► Moraíto XI.
