Celebrating Experiences

Experience Spanish Folk music and dance – Flamenco!

Exactly a year before on a beautiful evening of 10th Aug, I celebrated my marriage anniversary with Spanish Folk music and dance – Flamenco!. A musical evening that shines bright in my memory.

Flamenco

Guitar, hand-clapping, storytelling through songs and dance are the basic components of Flamenco. Exquisite footwork and intricate hand and body movements of the dancers are unique. The dancers change their expressions and rhythms of footwork many times during a single performance depending on the emotion of the story being told. Flamenco has its origins in Andalucia, an autonomous region in southern Spain. Andalucia is culturally very rich and diverse and has amalgamated in itself influences from Romans, Moors and Castillians over thousands of years.

Expressions in Flamenco

Sometimes the expressions are firm, and sometimes the dancers get engrossed with the rhythm so much that they spread joy and instill energy inside the viewer’s mind. At some point or the other all of the viewers were tapping their feet. Even I tried their steps, but it was a futile try. Typically Flamenco is divided into two groups. One group of singers and another group of dancers. During the group dances, it was an amazing experience to see the way each of the dancers moved their feet all together. The sound of the shoes has the same rhythm as the music. The group of dancers is usually formed of women. It’s also common to see a couple of dancers-one girl and one boy.

Dance is the timeless interpretation of life.

Flamenco dresses

Another attribute which I liked very much about Flamenco is its special dresses. They are colorful, flowing and feminine. The colored flower clips which the dancers wear on their hair are charming.
