5.0 out of 5 stars Granada through the generations 10 Feb 2011
By Paul Magnussen TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
This is a well-made German-made documentary about the Carmona flamenco family from Granada, i.e. los Habichuela. Taking the guitarist brothers Juan and Pepe Habichuela as reference-points, it covers everyone from their grandparents, through their children (who form the nucleus of the rock group Ketama) to their grandchildren! We see them at home, practising, performing and just chatting.

How good it is to see young children learning music this way, through osmosis and perpetual encouragement, rather than by the conventional Go-into-that-room-and-practise-and-don't-come-out-until-you've-got-it-right classical methodology that my wife (for instance) had to endure.

How happy the grandparents must be to see their progeny happy and successful, after what they themselves had to go through under Franco (described briefly but graphically).

So full marks for this DVD from me. One touch I particularly liked is that most DVDs have about 20 seconds of theme music which, if you don't choose one of the menu items, repeats endlessly. But this one has a beautiful Fandango de Huelva that keeps going until you get to the end.

5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT DVD! 25 Jan 2010
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Some music documentaries are pretty bad, and I purchased this just because it's rare to see good guitar playing and I take whatever I can get. But I was VERY pleasantly surprised from the first few seconds of this DVD. First, the video quality is GREAT (the contemporary shots, of course, although the historical footage ain't bad either considering how old some of them were). Most (easily 95% of the video) is crystal clear almost Blue-ray-like quality. And then the guitar... it's SO worth it! Beautiful playing, amazing.

5.0 out of 5 stars I thoroughly enjoyed this documentary 25 Jan 2011
By Denise - Published on Amazon.com

I've studied flamenco, spent about six years in Spain on and off, and really liked this documentary. There was thoughtfulness about HOW it was put together, all the shots, the interviews, the short performances, the stories told about family members...Lately I don't purchase many DVDs (I prefer to rent) but this one was worth buying in my opinion.

If you are into people and like flamenco, nueva flamenco, classic guitar, then you will enjoy this video. Plus it has added benefits of being in the Granada Gypsy quarter.
