flamenco

its been a long time since i saw any flamenco shows – you always hear and see the locals singing and dancing in the bars of seville and at the local ferias, but somehow i always feel that shows are more staged and less spontaneous.  however, we went to see a gala of flamenco last night at sadlers wells – there were dancers, musicians, singers, from young to old – it shows what a powerful art flamenco is – one that has not changed very much from the early gitanos of the 18C – from its simplistic staging, the haunting wails  of sorrow and lost love – the rhythm,  the movement, it reminded us why we love andalucia.
