Flamenco, an art form lauded by UNESCO as a ‘Masterpiece of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity’ in 2010, is a unique Spanish style of singing and dancing. It is a joy to behold and should not be missed.
Flamenco was born from a mixture of many cultures: Arabic, Jewish, Gypsies who came to Spain in the 15th century with many settling in Andalusia. From this cultural mix the artistic espression known as Flamenco was born. There can be no doubt that this passionate explosion of song, dance and musicianship cannot fail to stir the blood. The beat of hand on drum box; the lightning pluck of intricate guitar chords; the passionate cries of the singers; the pounding of stamping feet; the flicking of fingers; and twisting of sinuous frames over tautly stretched costumes is irresistible.
Flamenco can be enjoyed in a typical flamenco tablao in many cities in Spain such as Seville, Jerez, Granada and even in Madrid and Barcelona. Totally Spain can arrange for you to experience flamenco in a great variety of settings such as a 16th century Palace rich in history; a gypsy cave in the heart of Sacromonte Granada; even a flamenco tablao within a bullring constructed in the early 20th century.
Private flamenco performances can also be arranged for your group in a variety of indoor and outdoor locations, as part of your unique custom tour to Spain.
You only need to let your Totally Spain agent know and we can work an experience like this in to your itinerary, as part of your very own custom private tour in Spain.
