Song of the Day: Vivire

Flamenco is not everyone’s cup of tea.  Sometimes it’s a little too much for me as well, but this gypsy music sound of Spain, full of emotions has some amazing highs.  Camaron de la Isla is the highest of highs in flamenco.  You can literally feel the emotions in his voice, regardless of whether you understand Spanish or not.

I specifically chose Vivire because of the guitar.  I grew up listening to guitar greats like Santana, Cash, and Hendrix thanks to my guitar-playing uncle.  So Vivire’s intense sounds immediately resonated with me.  The lyrics, after reading about flamenco’s origins, are so intensely personal and you can hear that in his voice.

Sure flamenco is not for everyone, but if it is, this one is beautiful.
