Reflejo de Luna (granaína). Composed and performed by Paco de Lucia (1947-2014).
You may remember from a previous newsletter that the granaínait's a kind fandango from Granada, Spain that originated in the late 1800s. It has it's roots in the Spanish folkloric malaguena but is performed with an ad libitum (freely improvised) tempo and an undefined rhythm. The vocal lines of the melody are very complex and melismatic and solo guitar versions of this style mimic the musicality of the sung versions. The audio in this recording is not the best so I'm including a link to the studio version here as well.
