Flamenco Fiesta with SPEAK THE WORLD!
A display of Flamenco music, song and dance will be performed by Flamenco Con Gusto, a professional company led by principal dancer, singer, teacher and choreographer Danielle. This evening she will be accompanied by flamenco guitarist/singer David ‘El Pastor’, together they will offer a vivid and charismatic taste of Southern Spain… and after the show there will be a class in which you can learn to sing and dance in Flamenco style!
Flamenco is the music, songs and dances of Gypsies (gitanos) from Andalucía. Spanish gypsies have their nomadic roots in Northern India, and flamenco also shows Moorish & Arabian influences. Originally, flamenco was danced only to the accompaniment of songs & hand-clapping; later, guitars were added. There is always a fixed basic rhythm, to which variants, new steps & counter-rhythms are invented. From the gypsy caves & ghettos to the ‘Café Cantante’ of the 19th century, Flamenco eventually found its way into theatres & Spanish restaurants worldwide.
