Thanks, everyone! This is a great rabbit hole to have fallen into. Maybe 5% of the names provided were familiar. One of these days I really must make a flamenco tour of Spain. The only live flamenco I've seen was one of Paco De Lucia's last performances. It was in the Strathmore concert hall outside of Washington D.C. It was a great, great concert and experience, but it struck me how very much more powerful this would be in a more intimate setting (like around a crackling campfire).

Might not be easy to see a lot of flamenco in Spain, it's often happenng in Tablaos that are not so public, or in local clubs. There are great Flamenco festivals, though. The places that are advertised a lot are mostly tourist places (although one can get to see some fabulous asrtists there, too).

Fortunately there is a lot of first class material on Youtube. Sometimes it's just one of the younger guys checking a flamenco guitar at some dealer that yields a great little recording.

Of all the younger (well, he's not so young anymore) flamenco players I'd like to especially recommend Diego Del Morao. He hasn't got so many solo recordings, but there are some marvelous takes on YT.

Music is a big continent with different landscapes and corners. Some of them I do visit frequently, some from time to time and some I know from hearsay only ...
