)-- Dance critic Kersten Knipp writes:
"The authors have created a quiet, reflective piece, sensitive and dramatically withheld. Dancer Yumi Yamada and guitarist Robin Brown also show that one must not necessarily be from Andalusia in order to perform excellent flamenco.
"The pilgrimage that the catholic kings once started has been long since pursued by the artists. They wander their way through styles and traditions – in this case undeniably to the advantage of the Art."
Petenera – a Flamenco Drama in Music and Dance is 2 hours of unique live traditional flamenco as it is seldom performed today, featuring Elene Marlowe (as Petenera) and Seville's acclaimed maestro José Galván.
Additionally to the 26' drama that portrays the mystical femme-fatale Petenera who has haunted flamenco lore for over five centuries, the DVD includes over 90 minutes of previously unreleased solo performances recorded in California and Paris, France, including unique archive footage of José Galvàn's Siguiriya-Martinete, live at Sonoma's Sebastiani Theater.
Presented in its luxurious digipack case with full color bi-lingual booklet, The DVD is a collector's item for aficionados and laymen alike, and an exciting cultural enrichment to all.
