Spanish Edition: Flamenco

So, here's my last post on Spanish vacation:


I loved flamenco!  My husband was so very kind to take me watch flamenco in almost every city we visited.  And every city had a different flamenco style.

Flamenco dancers and the band in Madrid were bursting at the seams with anger, passion, jealosy and all kinds of dark emotions.  Their bodies, limbs, faces and voices were insanely moody, fierce and not to be messed with.  It was raw and electrifying!

Flamenco gypsies in Granada were fun and cheesy.  All the dances told you some kind of soap-opera story:  here's the couple dating against thier parents' wishes, here's Mama Gypsy tells you how hot she used to be and here's the grand finale -the wedding. 
I like the gypsies for the way they were - so very un-apologetically Gypsy.

And finally, great acoustic flamenco performance in Sevilla. 
It was extremely gracefull, powerfull and very flirty performance!  She smiled, she batted lashes, she swirled - she created a whirl-wind with her crazy skirts!

And on this note we should say Hasta Luego Espana! Eres Hermosa!
