Por los espejos del agua

Por los espejos del agua

There is more than one culture flowing into Ginesa Ortega: her mother was a gypsy and Ginesa, although she was French by birth, was Catalan and flamenca in her heart. Her last work is a clear example of this fusion. As the restless woman that she is, she is not content with merely going through the strict flamenco routine, and she shows the ease with which she allows herself to flow and mix styles, touching upon other genres such as jazz and reggae. It includes songs, some of which are legendary, like No woman no cry by Bob Marley or I´m a fool to want you by Billie Holiday, the Canción del mar that was adapted by Dulce Pontes, and the homage to her compatriot Joan Manuel Serrat in Aquellas pequeñas cosas. All of them are passed, masterfully, through her own personal flamenco filter. To finish things off, a fin de fiesta (lit. “end of the party”) in a bulerías style.
