[:en]Eli Santiago, Spanish Flamenco Singer of Barcelona y Flamenco.

How did you start singing Flamenco?
I began to sing since I was tiny! From when I was 2 or 3 years old I was singing and dancing. I have worked in France, in Spain and now we have a project to go to Madrid also.
For me Flamenco is the form in which I have to express to my feelings. When I go on stage is when I can get can everything out there as we would say.

What flamenco “palo” do you most identify with?
I most identify with the Soleá because it is a more serious movement. We gypsies say that you have to suffer to sing the Soleá and so it is the one I like the most. But what I also like is the Soleá and the Seguidilla, basically those are the more difficult “palos” that are in Flamenco.
