Flamenco: Heartbeat of the South, its History, its Rhythms
Antonio Guerra and Company and narrator Helen Sijsling
NB. This is the first Tuesday of the month.

Flamenco is song, Flamenco is music, Flamenco is dance, Flamenco is passion and poetry, Flamenco is a way of dressing, Flamenco is a way of life. Flamenco is a memory of a long ago past and the soul of the people of Andalucía. And it is listed as World Heritage.

We would like to share our passion for flamenco with you and show you Flamenco is not just a show you can go to as evening entertainment, it is the heartbeat of the people of the South and part of everyday life.

We will look at the history of Flamenco and the origin of its name.

We will focus on the three essences of Flamenco: Song, Music and Dance while demonstrating examples of the rhythms. There are 50 different song groups and we will demonstrate 7 of them.

Our Flamenco artists are local artists, they have performed abroad, far and near, and their very souls are flamenco.

Song: Rosa Linero

Music (guitar): Ruben Portillo

Dancers: Antonio Guerra and Elsa Guerra

The artists perform and demonstrate and the narrator, Helen Sijsling, explains what they are doing.

This a professionally-recorded video and those at home will be able to stream it from our YouTube channel in full-HD. It is narrated in English by Helen Sijsling and the lyrics are shown in subtitles in both Spanish and English.
