"Cant d'estil (singing contests) are sung outside, especially on hot summer nights in Valencia (they are largely specific to this region). Estil means style and it is the adornment, the style, of these pieces that define them. There's something of the matador about these singers: demonstrating bravura is part of the art. Here, various singers are accompanied by a small orchestra (rondalla) in charming, earthy performances recorded in 2003."
