Utrera, Sevilla

Contemporary flamenco


TRES GOLPES is the latest work by PERRATE and the radical commitment ( by belonging to his roots, by being essential and by being in favour of extreme reforms) to his surname, that of one of the great gypsy flamenco dynasties. In concert, PERRATE uses a band, as if it were a rock group, for an album that drinks from many sources while still sounding flamenco. There are travelling songs, such as Tres golpes, a Colombian street fandango that brought African slaves to the Caribbean. It also reinvents genres such as chacona, the jácara and the folía in the flamenco key, and new forms are created for tons, romanços, seguiriyas i seguidillas.

Accompanied by Paco ‘de Amparo’ (guitar and vocals) —nephew of Diego el Gastor and member of the mythical Son de la Frontera—, Antonio Moreno (percussion and vocals) and Pepe Fernández (keyboards, piano, bass and vocals), and with artistic direction by Pedro G. Romero, TRES GOLPES brings to the world a genre that is a cultural heritage, but which adapts perfectly to the new paths that are opening up a heterogeneous and diverse future for it. This is what PERRATE advocates for in the search for radicalism, the modernity of the classic, the purity of the origins and the fusion with new sounds.
