~ Flamenco Guitar ~
Flamenco is not understood without the accompaniment of the world-famous Spanish guitar and its characteristic ‘toque’. Neither is conceived a guitar without the work of the guitarists, a centennial art that overcomes the years and still endures in our city.
Nor is the Spanish guitar such an icon without the intervention of the guitarist, a centennial art form which has stood the test of time and still endures in our city.
Through their hands they pass the flamenco guitars that play the chords most associated with flamenco.. The ‘toque’ is not exempt from a purified technique, from the ‘picado’ and ‘tremolo’, through to the ‘rasgueado’ or ‘alzapúa’.
The late Paco de Lucía took the flamenco guitar around the world. Nowadays, Tomatito, Manolo Sanlúcar, Vicente Amigo and Pepe Habichuela represent the best of Spanish guitar.
They have been and continue to be an example for many of the guitarists or ‘tocaores’ of Granada, including of course, the Sacromonte, flamenco cradle par excellence.. In Tablao La Alboreá we enjoy the best: Rafael Fajardo, César Cubero, José ‘El Pirata’, Manuel Carmona, Camarón de Pitita, Kiki Corpas and occasionally the great Jerónimo Maya.
