As a photographer, I’m fascinated by the confident beauty and graceful motion of flamenco dancers as they stamp, clap and move to this music. As guitar player, I have a longtime fascination with the passion and rhythmic excitement of flamenco music. I’ve been to Spain twice and have spent a great deal of my time there searching out the best flamenco bars and listening to and watching some amazing performances. After each trip, I return even more energized to pick up my own flamenco guitar and practice harder in my lifelong journey to master this amazing form of music; or at least to be able to play it with a level of passable fluidity and technique.
Here’s a short clip of me playing a song form called the Sevillana, which is a style that originated in the city of Sevilla. (click on the arrow to hear the mp3)[audio:Sevillana.mp3]
