There is absolutely zero new stuff in flamenco, nothing which Paco has not done 30 years ago
To talk about what is traditional flamenco first we may need to consider that etymologically, the word comes from the Latin “traditio”, which means a passing on, a releasing of something older to something newer, a handing over, a heritage, a continuing. Extradite, from the same root, means a bringing back. But “tradition” also signifies a giving up, as in a betrayal. In fact, tradition and betrayal have the same root. The ancients had a sense that these are children of the same mother, as it were . . . and that we can distinguish one from the other mainly through the values we project onto each, this is the topic of this magazine issue.
