Antonio Mairena

Antonio Mairena is a great Flamenco cantator whose music is easily accessible on itunes and similar sources. He also wrote one of the great books on Flamenco, Mundo y forma del cante flamenco. According to a professor whose interview I recently listened to, Mairena is a kind of "neo-classical" artist. In other words, a good example of a singer who tries to present authentic and classical styles. This makes him an excellent point of reference for anyone, like me, who is trying to educate himself.

He's also very good.
