Composer: Christopher Caliendo 
Publisher: Caliendo World Music Publishing, Inc.
Instrumentation: Flute and Guitar
Duration: 2:41

An American guitarist, he is also a composer, and has done film scores for several silent films as well as television shows.  In the late 19th century the cante hondo (deep song), a highly emotional and tragic song cultivated among Spanish prisoners, was adopted by Spanish gypsies under the name, "cante flamenco", who made it even more florid and expressive.  Spanish ornamentation, florid melodic lines and a unique blend of pop culture contribute to the innovative instrumental style of this work.
