Flamencópolis (Universal Music Latino, 2006)
This compilation contains fabulous collaborations between Flamenco artists and some of the biggest names in world music and jazz. Universal Music Spain went through numerous recordings and extracted the pieces where Flamenco stars collaborated with renowned musicians from other genres.
The list is like a dream team. Guitarist Tomatito jams with jazz legend George Benson, Raimundo Amador is joined by none other than B.B. King. The kings of Nuevo flamenco, etama appear with several extraordinary duets with Caetano Veloso, Khaled, Rao Kyao and Michel Camilo.
The late Camarón de la Isla appears with The Royal Philharmonic orchestra, Spanish pop singer Ana Belén and Raimundo Amador.
If you like the new trends in Flamenco, and world music in general, you really need to pick a copy of this album. Highly recommended.
