Flamboyant, flirty, flashy and glamorous!
Flamenco is a Spanish art form made up of three parts: guitar playing (“guitarra”), song (“cante”), dance (“baile”).
There’s a saying, “When you learn to dance, you must also learn how to forget it.”
The artist at times must ignore whatever he has learned, in fact, he should seek inspiration from the wisdom, creativity flowing in his blood and the perceptions, judgments, and knowledge of his inheritance from traditions.
Flamenco is the dance form where the dancer is lost in his soul. His dance is transformed by the rhythm of the song, the spur of that moment, the song of his heart and coruscation of his connection with the dance form.
Flamenco is a way to sparkle the inner expression through it, unleashing the enigmatic grace to the artists.
Flamenco originated in the southern regions of Spain, Andalucía, the southern part of Spain which is flamenco‘s home but it’s thought to be influenced by many world cultures, including Latin American, Cuban, and Jewish traditions.
From generation to generation, the legacy of flamenco dancing is evolving, and it continues to be passionate, loud and eclectic. But apart from dancing, flamenco is also known for other expression forms: singing and guitar playing.
And the melting pot of heritages and cultures called flamenco is phenomenal.
