Diego Amaya Flores, better known as Diego del Gastor, is a unique character. His human and artistic profiles are practically impossible to separate from each other because, since he was a child, he was already living for his art form: the guitar! He was considered one of the masters of his era. It is not for nothing that great artists such as Antonio Mairena, Juan Talega, Juan Peña 'El Lebrijano', Perrate, Manuel Vallejo, Fernanda and Bernarda de Utrera competed for the honour of being accompanied by him.
The book features the following chapters: the guitar and toque (flamenco guitar playing) of Morón, the origins, Childhood in El Gastor, 'From where the lime comes' and good flamenco guitar playing, the 1930s, the payos' (non-gypsies) war, the 1940s, the decade of the 1950s, the Yankees, the 1960s and the early Andalusian gazpacho (a cold tomato soup), the 1970s, and the Rite of the last farewell. The CD includes ten themes that are played by this masterful guitarist.
