Global Hit: Antonio Carmona

Antonio Carmona is no rookie. He's been around -- musically speaking. Carmona was part of the Spanish band Ketama. Ketama pioneered the "nuevo flamenco sound" for two decades. And flamenco kicks off Carmona's new solo CD.

Player utilities

Once you get past the opening track, there's not that much flamenco on this CD.

Carmona, you see, is not more than just a flamenco player.

"No soy flamenco, flamenco, flamenco puro.... Yo siempre he sido alternativo un poco al flemnco. Siempre me ha gustado jugar con el flamenco. Se que el flamenco tiene muchos anos y muchos siglos. Y bueno, lo que trato yo con mi musica es refrescar nuestra raiz... nuestra raiz."
