It's a show of the flamenco "just fines." Sure, we all know and love the flamenco "greats," but it's the little guys who make up the fat, rich underbelly of flamenco. To paraphrase a very non-flamenco song, "Thank Heaven for flamenco 'just fines,' because without them what would we other little guys do?"
