Staccato and energy

When in Spain’s Andalusia, seeing a flamenco show is a ‘must do’. Unfortunately and fortunately, when intended to go when in Seville, the Semana Santa festivities began. The day after I was about to leave back to The Netherlands from Madrid and… with some bad and good luck, I got some extra time due to French air traffic strikes and ended up enjoying the staccato and the energy of a Flamenco show there.

From its roots in eighteenth century popular theatre, most flamenco performers were professionals. Originally they learned from other performers in the manner of an apprenticeship. Today, most guitarists undergo rigorous professional training and often can read and play music in other styles like classical guitar or jazz and many dancers take courses in ballet and contemporary dance as well as flamenco.
