Flamenco. Sizzling hot moves, passionate and emotional music, cheerful clapping and gorgeous outfits. This Spanish art form is an experience unlike any other.
Strong vocals. Male and female. Powerful facial expressions. I didn’t understand the Spanish lyrics but I felt the passion, the pain, the sensuality, all at once. The guitarist played mesmerizing melodies in harmony with the vocals. All the musicians had wonderful stage presence. It was a joy to watch!
The dancers were absolutely fabulous. Tapping. Clapping. Expressions. Gorgeous frilly dresses. They took us on an emotional journey and left us stunned after an intense performance. I wanted to see more. Hear more.
I gave them a big applause, complimented them on a fantastic performance and finished my sangria, before making my way out after a spectacular show.
The venue was small, which made the atmosphere seem more authentic and personal.
If you’re planning to visit Barcelona, I highly recommend this Flamenco show at City Hall!
location: Barcelona, in a venue called City Hall (address: Rambla de Catalunya 2)
when: Thursday to Sunday at 7:30 pm and 9:30 pm – length of performance: 55 minutes
