LEGENDARY flamenco singer Enrique Morente’s first five albums are being re-released.
A sixth album being issued, Pa ese coche funeral, was banned for its political content because made reference to the car bomb that killed Franco’s heir apparent, Admiral Carrero Blanco, in 1973.
Granada-born Morente, who died at the age of 67 in 2010, released his first recording, Cante Flamenco, in 1967.
He expanded his orthodox flamenco style through experimentation, recording punk-flamenco versions of Leonard Cohen songs and Federico Garcia Lorca’s Poet in New York.
