Greetings SueMac,
Someone's been busy off the iberianatureforum! Will check blog out to see if anyone I know is included!
Or if I see a name that at least rings a bell (Sp. anyone?)

Greetings SueMac,
Looking good!
Forgot to suggest you include José Mercé (http://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jos%C3%A9_Merc%C3%A9) , currently the no. 1 flamenco singer in Spain (and the only one Technopat will actually make an effort to listen to  >:D ) following the death of Camarrón, whose cult status, if not quality, will ne'er be surpassed (those of you new to the genre but old enough to have been force-fed the geniusness of Dylan, for example, will understand what I mean). Be that as it may, Mercé is a truly great singer, and comes across as a real nice guy. If you want to try to understand flamenco, Mercé will be a great help.

Hi TP and All
I must agree about Jose Merce, I saw him a couple of years ago at the Leon Flamenco festival, very impressed, but particularily impressed by his guitarist, Moraito, who was brilliant The Great thing about Merce is that he is not afraid to demistify flamenco ad create a fusion between it and other types of music, again a little like the great Bob Dylan.

Dave
