arte salvaje. Juan Moneo "El Torta"



Raro es el flamenco para que alabemos a un artista por ser salvaje. Hay muchos tópicos sobre la tragedia y el dolor, tantos como que el flamenco puede ser una música caída del cielo, tan moderna que ya no importa si huele o no a ser humano. La existencia de Juan Moneo “ElTorta” demuestra que hay un flamenco sobrehumano, un flamenco forzosamente nacido y criado en el barrio de La Plazuela, en esa cuna de un arte sin igual que hay en Jerez de la Frontera.

Es un flamenco que se expresa al mismo tiempo que la propia vida. “El Torta” canta como vive, como ha vivido, con un amor suicida por la vida. Más que cantar, el verbo que le gusta es transmitir. Lleva sus facultades al límite, hacia el abismo de un insoportable sufrimiento. “A muchos, si sacan la voz así, se les parte la aorta”, dice. No exagera lo más mínimo.

“Momentos”, disco y DVD, muestran una verdad en crudo. Alfredo Grimaldos escribe las notas, y en ellas recoge las palabras de “ElTorta”, capturadas de rato en rato, noche a noche, entre cante y charla, surgidas al calor del fuego que las envuelve. El cantaor hace su más fiel retrato: “Estoy curtido y más consciente de lo que hago. Y con menos voz se canta mejor”.

Casi quince años llevaba Juan Moneo sin grabar. Casi quince años de cantar, de buscarse la vida y luchar con sus demonios. Una dura pelea con la heroína. Ahora, superado ese espanto, puede cantar por bulerías, la voz desnuda, sin guitarra, al compás fraterno de palmas y percusiones: “Estoy endrogao/ Estoy enganchao/ Y al verme suelen decir/ No saben que me ha dejao/ Y que me quiero morir/ Siempre estoy tirado en la calle/ En los bares en las esquinas/ Cambio la vida por la muerte/ Por la maldita heroína”. Su forma de cantar es una forma de llorar. “Estoy dispuesto a nacer en el cante”, sentencia. El DVD y los doce cantes de este CD son el testimonio de ese renacimiento.

El disco comienza con unos tangos que cantan el desespero de estar solo. Sigue “Viaje al cielo”, unos tangos dedicados al llorado cantaor Luis de la Pica. Juan y Luis compartieron muchas noches de locura peleando por el cante verdadero. Esa fuerza que brota en la voz, ese exceso de sentimiento, es una forma de agarrarse a la vida. Un dominio llevado al límite por soleares, seguiriya, tarantos, martinete, malagueñas, tientos, tangos y bulerías. Eso que “El Torta”, con buen juicio, llama estilos, que no palos flamencos. “Los palos son los que da la Guardia Civil”, afirma.

Las letras le salen en el momento de cantar. “El Torta” no las escribe. En su memoria se que dan las que valen. En su memoria está la experiencia, lo mucho aprendido escuchando a sus grandes, grandes que son de todos: Antonio Mairena, El Borrico, Camarón, Terremoto, Agujetas… Como ellos, Juan Moneo intenta dar siempre todo lo que puede. Enfrentándose a sus miedos, “El Torta” se arriesga ciegamente. Le da miedo cantar, cuando lo único que quiere es cantar. Y de ese sin vivir nace su verdad.

Datos
Cantaor gitano. Nace en Jerez de la Frontera, Cádiz, en 1953. El primer cante lo aprendió de sus abuelos Pacote y Manuela Carpio Montoya. Su hermano Manuel Moneo también es cantaor notable. En 1972, el Concurso de Mairena del Alcor le otorgó el Premio de Soleares. Juan no lo recibió de manos de Antonio Mairena porque le daba miedo enfrentarse a que no se lo dieran. Con obra discográfica corta, son excelentes sus álbumes “Luna Mora” (1990) y “Colores morenos” (1994). Sus comparecencias en festivales flamencos siempre han sido sonadas.

Hey guys!

I know some folks here who have gotten results with Male-Extra penis enhancement pills. Im just about to order as i've been hearing amazing results with it. But first off, I want to know if Male Extra does it work as good as they say it does?

I know 1-2 inches Penis growth is realistic and easily accomplished. But I'd like REAL FAST penis growth in the 5 inches range. Dont laugh, I want to have the best penis growth possible because my new girlfriend dated a friggin porn stud!

Guys here know what im talking about?

I want...no make that I NEED to know the best way to enlarge Penis. Male-extra pills promises 3 inches growth within several weeks or they return your money. So I guess that essentially means, if my penis dont grow real fast? They lose money, coz I got to use the pills at the same time get my money back right?

Does this seem like a scam?

Please reply at the soonest possible time!
I need to make a decision fast!

Im already sold on it to be honest, but I just need that one last push so I dont put this off any longer.


The advertisement for the pill I last saw at this site. I hope its still there.

Many times something can seem wonderful on the surface but when you get down to the meat of the issue it is not so great. This happens more often then not when people fail to read the fine print about online casino bonuses. While there are a good many online casino bonuses out there, which ones are actually worth the time and hassle to take part in? Lets take a look at some of them.
[url=http://www.casinolesoleil.com]online casino[/url] http://www.casinolesoleil.com casino When you are seeking the play based on the bonus you should also check out the cashing out policies that are in place. There are some of the smaller casinos around that will limit the cash out that you can receive. In essence they are telling you when you can have the money that you have won and when you cannot have it. This is a very poor practice that takes place in some of the casinos and you should be mindful of such policies before you start playing. Most of the larger online casinos have no such limitations.
[url=http://www.redlotuscasino.com]online casino[/url] http://www.redlotuscasino.com casino The internet is offering just about everything into the comforts of our home. From books, to clothes, food to diet plans, movies to music, you can get everything with just one click on a button. You really do not have to go far in getting these things, why, with just a computer set up, you can get everything you want right in the comfort of your own home. The ease and comfort of purchasing or selling something via the internet is the perfect lure for busy people who almost have no time to shop or drop by somewhere just to get what they need. And really, why not offer casinos? Pokers, bingo, blackjack and roulette is offered there, too.

[url=http://www.bingokisses.com]bingo[/url] [url=http://www.bingoeuphoria.com]bingo[/url] bingo bingo http://www.bingokisses.com http://www.bingoeuphoria.com With online bingo your cards are randomly selected by the computer and you can play with a great number of cards sometimes as many as 100 or more. Ordinarily you will need no more than three or four cards. A display board or a caller will flash your bingo numbers and you will need to fill the pattern displayed to win the game. Some online games will have the computer automatically search and fill the numbers for you. Some people find this automation a kill-joy but some actually love the fact that all they have to do watch for the bingo flash!!!

If you want to have the highest chances of winning, you surely need to have a good guide to football betting. Most of these guides come with methods that can help you determine the ‘would be’ winning team by gambling on the online bookmakers. Such guides also offers software to make your betting needs much easier. In addition it is also seen that some soccer betting guides also assist bettors, maintaining a track of their bids. nfl betting baseball betting basketball betting boxing betting cricket betting darts betting football betting golf betting handball betting hockey betting rugby betting snooker betting tennis betting The public bets on the outcome of a sporting event. After the outcome of any particular event that has been wagered, all the losing bets are kept by the house and the winning bets are paid off by the sportsbook. If an official event does not finish because of different factors such as weather conditions, injuries, etc. the winning bets can still be paid out according to the procedures laid out by the sportsbook. Nevertheless, if the event is found not official and does not finish, the initially wagered moneys are returned by the sportbooks.
