What is flamenco?
It is the colour that rises between the rhythm and an off beat.
The soul that grips the throat and cries out in lament.
It is that which is born in the veins and dies in the heel.
It´s what makes a guitar sounding as if it plays the same beat as the heart.
Flamenco is life, death, night and day.
Flamenco is a crying expressed through the hammering of heels, laughter expressed through the happy melodies of bulerías.
Flamenco – singing, playing, dancing,
Art as drawn in the air.
