Subsequently, the Assistant Director of "The Truth", José García Martínez, had a long conversation with the singer Enrique Morente Granada.

I keep saying "do not consider myself a teacher, only a connoisseur who has devoted his life to the great singing: Flamenco."
His singing said "I inherited from my mother."
At that time, was something that was not in the script, but all that filled the capacity of the hall of the House Pinion expected.
Morente sang and it was the last time you did.
He played an arrow he learned from his mother.
Morente, always innovative, has not escaped criticism, "something that has helped me to gain credibility with other fans."
They could not miss the references to mining and Cartagena, "difficult sticks that give meaning to the name of song that gets great flamenco."
At this point, Morente was started by mining to the gratitude of the public, "up and down the slope, to give me low wages, and that to me brings me no account, and mine does not go over."
The climax came with a lullaby of Miguel Hernández Enrique Morente sang accompanied on guitar by Carlos Cartagena Piñana, present at the event and teacher of students of the Conservatory of Music who had acted.
That lullaby Morente gave the audience, also the "I sang my two grandchildren," he acknowledged, the Granada.
