Travels in Spain, The Flamenco

Granada Flamenco

“We are in the Spanish south.  The castanets click from coast to coast, the cicada hum through the night, the air is heavy with jasmine and orange blossom… the girls have black eyes and undulating carriages.”  –  Jan Morris,  ‘Spain’

  2. So much in history needs to be explain in modern Spain. Flamenco is Andalucian not From the other Spain.😉

    • Interesting therefore that there were several flamenco shows in Barcelona. Interesting also that the tourist shops sold Don Quixote mementos and he had nothing to do with Catalonia. Blurring the edges?

  4. Great meeting you yesterday, Andrew. I thought I’d better produce a Six word Saturday, being as you missed it last week. Wishing you and Kim many happy years and travels together. https://restlessjo.me/2018/06/30/six-word-saturday-281/

  6. We enjoy taking in Flamenco dances. The dancers and musicians are typically from Andalucia. One of the best performances was at a Finca with dancing Andalucian horses as well.

  8. Such good illustrations of the fiery rhythms of Flamenco. Red and black are the only colours that express it. I’m often surprised to see Flamenco dancers dressed in green and white, it seems so alien.
