From both sides of the Atlantic, native music comes together from different countries. Ranchulería bears the unmistakable stamp of art from different ethnicities. It is the union of races where rhythms, pulses and vocal cadences are combined from different cradles. It is a flamenco tribute to great Mexican composers, and as such, I have decided to call a Mexican ranchera song a ‘Ranchulería’ when it is played in the rhythm of bulerías.

A concert where the central theme in ‘La Ranchulería’ is three bulerías that define the title of the show: "Te lo pido por favor" Juan Gabriel, "Pa'todo el año" and "De un mundo raro" by José Alfredo Jiménez, authors of which I am a great admirer. Songs such as "La Llorona, La Martiniana, Cucurrucucú Paloma and Perdón," complete this wonderful show and are an appetizer to tempt the audience to play with other flamenco styles.
