From the heart of Triana, the album 'Sastipén talí', which means 'health and freedom' in caló (language spoken by gypsies). An outstanding flamenco album from Paco Fernández, accompanied by great flamenco figures such as Dorantes, Diego de Morao, Potito, Farruco, his sister Esperanza Fernández and his brother Jose Fernández. The lyrics and the music on almost all the themes in the record have been composed by Paco Fernández himself, who can even be heard singing on some of them.
Two sides can be distinguished on this album. A more orthodox one, appreciable in the seguiriya ‘La Fragua de mi pare Curro’ or in the bulerías dedicated to his mother Pepa Vargas, ‘Momá Lebrija’, in which his brother Joselito and Farruco appear on baile. And a more heterodox one is glimpsed in ‘La Tarara’, performed by his sister Esperanza Fernández; in ‘Do, re, mi’, bulerías paying tribute to great artists such as Mozart, Picasso, Lorca and Falla; and in the alegrías ‘Sastipén Talí’, in which Potito's voice appears. The jaleos ‘Guitarrista pobre’, the soleá por bulería ‘Gandhi’, the tangos ‘Mira lo que da Triana’, the lullaby ‘Mi hija Soleá’ and the bulerías ‘Chache Curro Romero’ complete the range of songs of this enchanting flamenco record from the multi-faceted Triana-born artist.
