I think you will find flamenco history will rank Estrella Morente as one of the greatest flamenco artists of all time. Comparable to a Camaron or a Carmen Linares. I know it is a big statement considering her age but that is how good she is at the cante. But it is not just the sweet voice of honey it is also the quality of the songs. Most of the songs on this album are traditional flamenco songs. As such, they have selected only the finest and so it is hard to find a week song on the album. Her father the great Enrique Morente is really guiding his daughter in the right direction.
Her new album "calle del aire" (a christmas album but in the traditional spanish style) is a piece of pure joy. The musical structures are stunning and present a wide variety of musical styles (not just flamenco). Get your hands on it if you can. I think it may even be more impressive than this one. I know, another big statement. The final track on this one has a live recording of Estrella as a 7 yr old singing at a family gathering... I can not even explain how unbelievable her talent was even at that tender age.
She has the most beautiful voice I have ever heard in flamenco... it sears into your being and doesn't let go.
Love must go to other young artists such as Nina Pastori & Arcangel but the reality is Estrella is so far ahead they will never catch her.

You might be attracted to "Mi cante y un poema" (My song and a poem) by the critical acclaim and reported 80,000 sales it has notched up - massive for a flamenco album.
You might have been captivated by hearing samples of 21-year-old Estrella Morente's unique voice, with its mixture of sweet clarity, raucous power and arabesque control. Haunting.
And you probably couldn't fail to notice the fact that this young lady is just plain drop-dead gorgeous from any angle. She's a marketer's dream, if only the music were a little less real, a little more "mellow", a little more MTV-friendly. Not to mention, in English.
But no, Estrella Morente is the real thing from Granada in Spain. Her father Enrique is an outstanding flamenco cantaor (singer). Estrella has learned her craft with him and other flamenco greats such as the guitarists Manolo Sanlucar and the legendary Sabicas, with whom Estrella recorded when she was eight!
For the purists, "Mi cante y un poema" is a real flamenco album respecting all the forms - a fine addition to any collection. But there are plenty of hooks in there for non-specialists too, with excitement, tenderness, exoticism, fun and great guitar playing. An astonishing debut album.
Also worth checking out - "Nueva York / Granada", a double album recorded in New York and Granada featuring Sabicas and Enrique Morente.

Ah what gem this album is! It includes some of the best musicians flamenco has to offer, starting with
Estrella Morente, a cantaora with a voice so pure it will break your heart and send you to heaven. She sings passion, whether it is of joy or sorrow. Ms Morente is the daughter of Enrique Morente, a most popular and beloved cantaor.

Backing her are some of the very best musicians flamenco has to offer. First there is Manolo Sanlucar, maestro of guitar and teacher to Paco de Lucia and Vicente Amigo, gives exquisite accompaniment on two tracks.

Pepe and Juan Habichuela, Alfredo Lagos, Jose Carbonell Montoyita, and Jose and Juan Carmona, all very well respected guitarists, embody the very heart and soul of flamenco guitar. They too give sublime performances, and may inspire you to check them out on their own. You would not be disappointed.

I don't know how many more times I can use the terms inspired, exquisite, perfect, best, passionate, pure or sublime! So, I leave this review in hopes you will be provoked into checking this delightful disc out for yourselves. If you love flamenco this collection will knock your socks off and make your bones sing.

Estrella Morente is a goddess. If you want to hear summa cum laude flamenco singing by one of the living greats, get this cd. Her father, Enrique Morente - en paz descanse - was one of modern flamenco's godfathers, many would say the greatest of the late 20th century flamenco cantaores/composers. His daughter, Estrella has fully inherited his flame as a singer, both in her craft and in her artistic passion. A generous, beautiful torch of a singer. Incandescent. Supreme artistry.
