About The Flamenco Guide
What is flamenco? Where did it come from? What are the dancers dancing? What are the singers singing? What does it all mean? And where is the best place to see it in Madrid? Let me take care of answering all these questions (and more) on a private flamenco tour in Madrid. Many visitors to Madrid want to see a flamenco show. And they pay good money to do so. But in the end they only get half the story, half the experience. Because without some sort of explanation, so much of its richness is lost. Flamenco is so much more than just singing and dancing. It’s an age-old art-form with mysterious origins, deeply-rooted traditions and wonderful personalities. And I’m passionate about sharing my knowledge and love for flamenco. Which is why I offer private flamenco tours in Madrid, for those who want to truly experience flamenco.
