SEEKING SILVERIO 410 pages $34.95
Twenty years in the writing, Paco Sevilla's historical novel, SEEKING SILVERIO, is a saga of the birth of flamenco. Set in the impoverished and desperate 1880s Andalucía, a young shoemaker's son, Antonio Chacón, sets out with his friends, guitarist Javier Molina and dancer Antonio Molina, in a search for knowledge, personal recognition, and respect for his beloved cante. During their journey, Chacón discovers many of the roots of his art and meets the legendary personalities who created what we today call flamenco. Among these often eccentric characters are: cantaores Juan Breva, Fosforito, Salvaoriyo, Enrique el Mellizo, Curro Dulce, and the enigmatic Silverio Franconetti; guitarists Javier Molina, José Patiño, Paco el Barbero, Maestro Pérez, Juan Habichuela, and Paco de Lucena; dancers Juana la Macarrona, Fernanda and Juana Antúnez, Salud Rodríguez, Rita Ortega, and Rosario la Mejorana.
A historically accurate account that will entertain and educate the casual aficionado as well as the flamenco scholar. Learn the origins of many flamenco song forms, the surprising level of sophistication of early guitar playing, and see flamenco's most cherished song verses placed in historical context. Includes an extensive appendix that separates fact from fiction and provides sources for the information. A traditionally bound trade paperback: 410 pages
