R.I.P. Enrique Morente

Enrique Morente died some days ago. He was one of the best flamenco cantaores ever along with Antonio Mairena or Camarón de La Isla. His daughter, Estrella Morente, sang a piece a-capella during the funeral that moved to tears to a whole country.

Enrique Morente was the main innovator of flamenco, pushing away every barrier. You can listen here in a live improvised performance with Lee Ranaldo and Steve Shelley of Sonic Youth in an Arts Centre this 2010.

But he never forgot his flamenco roots, listen to him singing a Martinete, the most ancient and primitive flamenco style.
