Cante Flamenco en Nueva York by Luis Vargas with Basilio Georges (NF007CD)

A compliation is in the works of four cantes recorded live by Vargas at the Cante Festival 1995, held at GuitarStage at the American Institute of Guitar in New York City and six cantes in 2007 at Flamenco Latino Studio Theater, both accompanied by Basilio Georges.

Luis Vargas is one of three great cantaores living in New York who are fuentes of Flamenco cante. From Algeciras, he has been involved in the business for over 50 years and has toured the United States widely with Jose Greco and Maria Benitez over the last 25 years. He is the singer backing up Maria Alba's dance company on a Sabicas video filmed in the late 60s and offered through Alegrías Productions. Luis' knowledge of pure and traditional styles is very broad, and as a singer backing up dancers he rarely has the opportunity to display more than a small portion of his repertoire.
