If you have a passion for flamenco, or if you simply would like to learn more about this traditional Spanish form of art, do not miss ¡Flamenco!, in Rome from the 10th to the 20th of September.

The third edition of ¡Flamenco!,Guest Posting an appreciated festival that the eternal city dedicates to one of the most famous Spanish forms of art, will be a good chance for all those who will travel to Rome and at the same time will take a journey to another land and into another culture. During the festival the Auditorium Parco della Musica and other venues in the city will be enlivened by the performances of some important flamenco artists that will turn Italy’s capital city into a Spanish oasis.

Thanks to this festival flamenco, an important heritage of Andalusia and of Spain in general, which has been exported all over the world, will be protagonist also in Italy, giving all the tourists who will take advantage of cheap hotel reservations in Rome the possibility to see with their own eyes and listen with their own ears to this beautiful music and dance. Although many people may think that flamenco is only a type of dance, we should not forget that it is divided into three categories: el cante (traditional singing), el toque (typical music played with guitar accompanied by hands and feet beat), and el baile (dance). El cante, el toque and el baile will all be protagonists of this festival, which is meant to introduce all forms of flamenco in an exhaustive way and through the performances of first-level artists.

The festival will open with el cante, in particular with the performance of Esperanza Fernández, an important flamenco singer who is very appreciated for her deep knowledge of traditional flamenco but also for her capacity to deal with different music genres. In Rome she will offer wonderful interpretations of flamenco classics. Also you cannot miss the concert of Diego el Cigala, who will delight the Roman audience with his latest project, after the great success achieved by “Lagrimas Negras” in 2004. If you want to know something more about el toque, enjoy the concert of saxophonist Perico Sambeat and his ensemble, who will play an original mix of flamenco and jazz.

And if you have a passion for dance, you definitely have to book discount accommodation on the 12th of September and attend the show “De entre la luna y los hombres” with Fuensanta La Moneta, an artist that in spite of her young age has already performed in various festivals and theatres all over the world. The artist will also help all those who would like to try to dance flamenco: as has happened in the past editions, also this year the programme of the festival includes some lessons with two great teachers: Fuensanta La Moneta and Isabel Bayón, a dancer from Seville who is considered as one of the best interpreters of gypsy art. Both dancers will give two lessons, one for beginners and one for advanced dancers, to give all flamenco and dance lovers the possibility to personally experience this fascinating form of art.
