The lyrics of 'Baladilla de los tres rios,' from Lorca’s 'Poema del Cante Jondo, filled Carmen del Aljibe del Rey's gardens with water. They were accompanied by the powerful voice of Arturo Fernandez, and Angel's weeping guitar Alonzo. The opening of the El Agua y la voz cycle, which was in its eleventh year, featured music and poetry. Francisco Acuyo, poet, was presented in the gardens at the Aljibe del Rey. This cultural evening at twilight featured the pictorial work by Laura Linares, a watercolourist who captured in the collection "Portraits on fire on water" the faces of those who participated in that Cante Jondo Contest. Acuyo also published poems and Entorno Grafico, which will preserve the image of pioneers in cante.
