What I love of Pablo Picasso's work is that he dared to be himself in his works and he was not afraid to have new experiences while painting. He used his talent to convey to people his very personal perception of the world. For me, this work is a great example.

This is a very interesting interview recently made to John McLaughlin. He talks about many interesting things, specially, about Paco, what he thinks about him as a guitar player, his heartfelt words about his death. He also speaks about a composition he created to play with Paco but was left behind because of sudden passing of Paco and he is rearranged it and he's playing now with his band as a tribute to Paco. It's worth reading! CLICK HERE
E.-Video Recommendation of the Week
1) Farruco y Farruquito playing guitar
Farruco and Farruquito are heirs of a great flamenco tradition headed by the amazing flamenco dancer Farruco, their grandfather. Farruquito is already a very famous dancer in Spain (and the world) and Farruco (the young brother of Farruquito) toured for about 10 years with Paco de Lucía as a dancer. As almost all the members of the Gypsy community, they also sing and play guitar. They are very talented and this video is “pa’ rabiar!” (a Spanish expression that means something like “really amazing!!!”)
