Product Description

Product Description

The cantaora Estrella Morente belongs to a true flamenco dynasty. She was born 20 years ago in Las Gabias, province of Granada, to Andalusian legend Enrique Morente and dancer Aurora Carbonell. Her uncles are guitarist Antonio Carbonell and cantaor José Carbonell and her grandfather is the legendary guitarist Montoyita. Most of My Songs and a Poem (which sold 200,000 copies in Spain) is comprised of traditional songs adapted by her father, the exceptions being "For Pastora", Estrella's compositional debut (homage to her hero La Niña de Los Peines) and "Moguer" a prose-poetry text by Andalusian poet Juan Ramón Jiménez set to music by Enrique Morente. Already a star in Spain, Estrella is set to make a big impression on flamenco aficionados abroad.

Amazon.co.uk

Considering how popular flamenco is in Britain, it's remarkable how few flamenco singers there are on our musical landscape. Estrella Morente's My Songs and a Poem is therefore a notable event, for this young Spaniard's debut CD marks her out as a great singer in the making. Her voice is on the light side, often girlish, but it has an enormous range of colour, and it fairly crackles with combustion when required to do so.

As her dedication puts it: "to all the great singers in my family, El Tio Miguel, El Gitano de Valladolid, uncle Pedro Carbonell…" For Estrella hails from gypsy Andalusia, and as the daughter of the great Enrique Morente she is carrying the true flamenco torch. Enrique has long championed new poetry as a revivifying source for flamenco, and he himself is the producer of this record, which consists of Estrella's own arrangements of traditional flamenco songs. The guitar accompaniments are superb; the clapping, stamping and shouting reflects the fact that Estrella is a true possessor of that mysterious quality, "duende".--Michael Church

9 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Mr. Stuart Robert Harris VINE VOICE on 11 July 2005
Format: Audio CD
You might be attracted to "Mi cante y un poema" (My song and a poem) by the critical acclaim and reported 80,000 sales it has notched up - massive for a flamenco album.
You might have been captivated by hearing samples of 21-year-old Estrella Morente's unique voice, with its mixture of sweet clarity, raucous power and arabesque control. Haunting.
And you probably couldn't fail to notice the fact that this young lady is just plain drop-dead gorgeous from any angle. She's a marketer's dream, if only the music were a little less real, a little more "mellow", a little more MTV-friendly. Not to mention, in English.
But no, Estrella Morente is the real thing from Granada in Spain. Her father Enrique is an outstanding flamenco cantaor (singer). Estrella has learned her craft with him and other flamenco greats such as the guitarists Manolo Sanlucar and the legendary Sabicas, with whom Estrella recorded when she was eight!
For the purists, "Mi cante y un poema" is a real flamenco album respecting all the forms - a fine addition to any collection. But there are plenty of hooks in there for non-specialists too, with excitement, tenderness, exoticism, fun and great guitar playing. An astonishing debut album.
Also worth checking out - "Nueva York / Granada", a double album recorded in New York and Granada featuring Sabicas and Enrique Morente.

One of the most excellent Flaminco Albums I have ever listened to during the past 10 years. Morante's adaptation of traditional and ancient flaminco songs has made this music more accessble to the modern ear and to the non "World Music" listeners.

Format: Audio CD
Estrella, Enrique Morente's daughter, has made a debut album that has exploded on the flamenco scene like a bomb. Though only twenty years old, she is believed to be a diva in becoming, a cantaore who promises a very interesting and fruitful career. On this album, the two most powerful tracks for me are 2 and 4. However, after the first 4 songs, it becomes more traditional flamenco.
Estrella's voice control is dominant throughout the album and it gives you the feeling that it is the "Best of..."...
I am not a consumption-support-agent but I recommend this album to anyone who has any interest in flamenco whatsoever.

It was listed as good condition and I purchased it as a gift, unfortunately the CD case was scratched and broken/cracked.
