AllMusic Review by

Flamenco is both a romantic, alluring music and a dynamic, aggressive one, particularly when played and sung by masters of the idiom. Rafael and Raimundo Amador are contemporary players who understand this dualism, and illuminated it through all nine selections. Raimundo Amador provided punch on electric and flamenco guitar and bass, while Rafael sang with both lightness and spark and answered his brother's flashy chords and passages with equally hot, sensual lines and phrases.
