Terremoto, the Documentary

View on the Pragda STREAM site

This documentary reveals the incredible life of Terremoto de Jerez. His style is the sublimation of cante jondo and his biography is the history of flamenco itself.

Through direct testimonies, hundreds of photographs, and black and white recordings, we rescue the best flamenco singer in history, Terremoto de Jerez, from oblivion. Our protagonist is an unlikely hero: gypsy, illiterate, born in misery and lacking training, but precisely for this reason, he incarnated the duende in a natural and genuine way.
