The sevillana is a traditional Spanish dance from Seville (closely linked to flamenco) that is accompanied by a sung melody, also known as a sevillana. Nowadays the sevillana is danced at ferias (annual local festivals) or during romerias (religious pilgrimages) in Spain (Seville, Jerez, Barcelona, etc.), but also in southern France (Arles, Nîmes, Dax, Mauguio, Béziers etc). Twenty pieces are presented on this album, each one chosen for its authenticity and for the impact and meaning of its words (letras). Laurent Maltinti, known as El Tempranillo , is a singer and guitarist of Italian origin, who now lives in Provence, where he is also well known for the wines he produces. El Tempranillo is well-known in the flamenco world for his strong, mature voice and his unusual flamenco guitar technique (toque).
