Déjate de Instagram. Habla con tu abuela De Concha Piquer a Rosalía, un libro fascinante que reivindica el diálogo con nuestros mayores, las mujeres pioneras de nuestra cultura popular, la memoria y el amor por la tierra y por las cosas nuestras. Un domingo cualquiera, una joven mira stories en Instagram mientras su abuela se dedica a las faenas del hogar. Una canción de Rosalía y una alusión a Concha Piquer son el detonante de una conversación en la que la cultura popular, el folclore y el recuerdo de figuras transgresoras que tuvieron que luchar por sus derechos en una España chapada a la antigua se mezclan con las referencias de las generaciones actuales. Así, entran y salen de escena Lola Flores, Rocío Jurado, Miguel Molina, las Spice Girls, Nathy Peluso o Federico García Lorca, pero también surge la memoria del campo, las dificultades de cuantos tuvieron que emigrar durante la dictadura o las que todavía afrontan los jóvenes para encontrar trabajo o hacerse escuchar. Un libro conmovedor que nos invita a reconectar con nuestros mayores y descubrir sus historias para que permanezcan con nosotros. ENGLISH DESCRIPTION Enough Instagram. Talk with your grandmother.   A fascinating book that reclaims a dialogue with our elders, the pioneering women of popular culture, memories, and love for our land and our things.   On any given Sunday, a young woman sits and goes through Instagram stories while her grandmother goes about doing household chores. A song by Rosalía and a mention of Concha Piquer trigger a conversation in which pop culture, folklore, and the memory of transgressive characters who had to fight for their rights in an old-fashioned Spain, intertwine with references from current generations. Thus, Lola Flores, Rocío Jurado, Miguel Molina, the Spice Girls, Nathy Peluso, and Federico García Lorca constantly enter and exit the scene, but we also see memories from the countryside; we see the difficulties of those who had to emigrate during the dictatorship, and also those that young people still must face in order to find work or make themselves heard.   A moving book that invites us to reconnect with our elders and discover their stories so that they stay with us.… (more)
