Cañizares’s latest flamenco album, ‘El Mito de la Caverna’ was released on 11 April, including the translation of the CD texts and 8 pages of the original libretto.

Professor Jiro Hamada, a prestigious musicologist and flamencologist, said:

From my perspective, calling Cañizares a ‘Flamenco guitarist’ is no longer appropriate, even if you add ‘one of the best of’ to the expression. After working with the Berlin Philharmonic and Sir Simon Rattle and other first-rate orchestras worldwide, being universally praised, who can we call him a ‘flamenco guitarist’? If we want to put a label on him, it must be something like ‘super guitarist’ or a ‘transcendental guitarist’.
