25 Years Without Camarón

Today is the 25th anniversary of the passing of the Flamenco legend José Monje Cruz, better known as El Camarón de la Isla, and large numbers of people in his native San Fernando Cádiz have turned out to pay their respects while his sisters Isabel and Remedios placed a floral tribute at his mausoleum. His funeral in 1992 attracted massive numbers of people and among those who carried his coffin draped with a gypsy flag were two other Flamenco Legends; the guitarists Paco de Lucía, sadly also gone, and Tomatito. Descansa en paz Camarón.

Here is a link to a video of Camarón and Paco:
