A Mi Compadre Morao (Flamenco Guitar)

A Mi Compadre Morao (soleá). Composed & performed by Antonio Rey.

The style of soleá — from the Spanish word soledad (loneliness) — dates back to the early part of the mid-1800s when flamenco was officially (i.e., in print) recognized as a genre in Spain. Like most flamenco styles, the soleá was heavily influenced by Spanish folk as well as classical music and dance (including a heavy influence from the Gipsies dating back to 1425). The soleá was originally a style for voice, guitar, and dance. Here Antonio Rey plays an instrumental composition of the style dedicated to the late guitarist, Manuel Moreno Junquera, "Moraito Chico."
