Congrats, Paco!  I cannot read Spanish but downloaded the PDF anyway.  Carmen Amaya is great!  I have a CD/DVD set of her performances with Sabicas and footages.

Thank you!

  She is not related to the Amaya family but to the Pericet family, big tradition. In the interview she is talking about the show, the creative process, the figure of  Carmen and how everything came to be.

  Akira, that cd/dvd should be very interesting!

Sure!  Some of the same footages can be found on YouTube now.  Like this one.  I''m sure you have already watched it, though.

I have seen parts of the footage but not all and never all together, thanks a lot for the link.

Carmen Amaya was born on November 13th 1913. I have been in charge of the visual material and today I have learnt that one of the images is used for the front cover of the magazine "Artes Escénicas".
  The 13th issue  :o :o :o

I will add that there are 13 red pieces in this photo (#386): 12 letters and 1 accent  :)

Ciao from Massimo

The thread continues to be fascinating!

The image of the motorcycle with 13 all over is unbelievable , as well as the magazine cover
