Fado, Flamenco, and Tango

Sunday, March 13, 2011

Inspired by Spanish filmmaker Carlos Saura's trilogy of "music movies," we hear Portuguese fado, Spanish flamenco, and Argentine tango in various permutations, including music by Mariza, Mariza & Miguel Poveda, Astor Piazzolla, Rafael Jimenez, and others.  Some are sampled from the most recent of Saura's films, "Fados," like Amália Rodrigues, Cesaria Evora, and possibly even Caetano Veloso.  There's probably also music from "Flamenco," by Paco de Lucia, Enrique Morente, and Carmen Linares, plus a sampling of traditional tango music from composers such as Piazzolla, Canario, Salgan, and Filiberto, used in "Tango."
