Storyline

As a hall fills with performers, a narrator says that flamenco came from Andalucia, a mix of Greek psalms, Mozarabic dirges, Castillian ballads, Jewish laments, Gregorian chants, African rhythms, and Iranian and Romany melodies. The film presents thirteen rhythms of flamenco, each with song, guitar, and dance: the up-tempo bularías, a brooding farruca, an anguished martinete, and a satiric fandango de huelva. There are tangos, a taranta, alegrías, siguiriyas, soleás, a guajira of patrician women, a petenera about a sentence to death, villancicos, and a final rumba. Families present numbers, both festive and fierce. The camera and the other performers are the only audience. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

One of the few available flamenco DVD's and it's a good'un
3 June 2003 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

It's a movie made with spanish sensibilities. If I was spanish and if I'd lived and breathed the flamenco, this is what it would look like. Proud, haughty, yet fun and bold.

The colour, rhythm and motion of the music, the singing and the dancing are captured. Captured and put on film to remind the viewer what good flamenco can be like.

It's flamenco for the modern age, yet, the costumes and the voices are old, old.

This film has well known artists, and it also introduces us to the up and coming singers, guitarists, and dancers.

I highly recommend this film to all fans of the art of flamenco.
