Niña de los Peines: Manantial del cante jondo

La Niña de los Peines (1890-1969) var endnu en legende i flamenco-musikken.  Hun rammer en let tone, men med en dyb undertone, der virkelig kunne bevæge publikum. I løbet af sin meget lange karriere mødte hun bl.a. digteren Federico García Lorca, der karakteriserede hende med disse ord:

This woman’s voice is exceptional. It breaks the moulds of all singing schools, as much as she breaks the moulds of any built music. When she seems to be out of tune, she is not out of tune: on the contrary, she is incredibly in tune as, owing to the special miracle of this style and the passion with which she sings third tones and quarter tones, impossible to record on the staff.
