I count myself lucky to be excited about September each year, and this is due mainly to… well yes, flamenco! My dance and rhythm classes resume, and the calendar fills up with fantastic flamenconess around Madrid. And here are the flamenco events that most excite me this year – and some of them are free!
“Could you please advise of a non-touristy flamenco show in Madrid?”, “I would like to experience authentic flamenco, not flamenco for tourists” and so on and so forth. I get a surprising number of these requests from my blog readers, and I think that it’s high time I addressed this controversial issue.
So here I go. Are flamenco shows just for tourists? (more…)
There aren’t enough evenings in a week – or euros in my bank account – for the fantastic flamenco shows and recitals programmed for this October in Madrid. These are the shows that I wouldn’t want to miss, ideally – but most of which, alas, I realistically will miss!
