"Sí, aunque no sé cómo podría hacerse eso, porque el flamenco se aprende como lo aprenden los gitanos, en familia, oyendo a los hermanos, los padres y los abuelos... Pero por lo menos unas instrucciones básicas podrían darles, y luego que cada uno se busque la vida y las borracheras."

"Yes, although I don't know how that could be done (to teach flamenco to the children), because flamenco is learnt like the gypsies learn it, in family, listening to the brothers, parents and grandparents... But at least they could give them some basic instructions, and then that each one looks for the way to sort their lifes out and their drunkenness"
