The Biennial of Flamenco it is celebrated in Seville lighting its streets of this art and passion. For almost 40 years when September of even years arrives, Seville is immersed in flamenco. From September 6 to 30, a program is offered where the most renowned artists who come to delight with their art sing, dance and play. A city that turns fully to an ingrained feeling. Singers, dancers and guitarists take to the stage for Sevillians, amateurs, and purists of this art. Seville is flooded with whining and the torn sound of the Spanish guitar. Of the chiming of the palms and heels with the zapateado. From the Lope de Vega Theater to the Plaza de Toros de la Real Maestranza it is placed under the feet of these artists.
Why it is important to flamenco in Spanish culture
The flamenco although it is originally from the south of Andalusia it has been adopted as a heritage associated with the culture of Spain. It is a musical genre with a great aesthetic content that impregnates it with a great differentiating personality from the rest of the music that populates the musical world. It is the result of the fusion between the voice of singing, dance and musical accompaniment with guitar, zapateados and palms. Which is called singing, dancing and playing. Their clothing is a very characteristic element such as the flamenco costume for women or the flamenco for man. Heels as an artistic expression. As part of the music making a whole.
The best flamenco music
In the biennial the best flamenco music is represented, the best cantaores and cantaoras accompanied by their shows some more groundbreaking and others more conservative preserving the cante jondo. For more than twenty days you can enjoy this art that will flood the city in more than twelve points. The flamenco it is an art that is learned. That passes from generation to generation. That the gypsies teach their children at flamenco parties, at every family reunion. Because it talks about feelings.
The best flamenco
The best flamencocomes from the hand of Salvador Távora founder of La Cuadra de Sevilla lands with his show "Quejío" a cry about social injustice. Távora is very prone in his shows to show a groundbreaking proposal. This time for its aesthetic conception, its political and social commitment. The 84-year-old Sevillian playwright reflects the oppression of the Andalusian proletariat through a montage based on singing and visual power, with the absence of dramatic text.
Tía Juana la del Pipa, Remedios Amaya and Juana Amaya will be highlighting the contribution of Romani women to flamenco singing. The Poligono Sur will be brought to the biennial by the Factoría Cultural. Antonio Amaya by the dancer Farruquito.
