If you ever visit the Andalusian capital, it’s essential to reserve an afternoon to see a good flamenco performance. And why is this? You may ask. Well, you should know that Andalusia is the birthplace of flamenco and everyone who has the opportunity to enjoy it falls in love with the dance, the singing and, above all, the atmosphere. However, it is important to look for the best places so you can see an authentic show at a good price.
As for the origin, there are many theories, but we really don’t know which one is true. But one thing is certain: flamenco was born from the people and became great thanks to important singers, musicians and dancers. Some great names in the history of flamenco are Camarón de la Isla, Lola Flores, Paco de Lucía, José Mercé, Diego “El Cigala”, among many others; all of them with their own special gift or, in the language of flamenco, their duende. It is also important to note that flamenco is the greatest representative of our culture and in 2010 was considered Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO. After all this information, it is impossible not to be a little curious about attending a live flamenco show…
