Painting - Oil On Canvas
Can you hear the sound of the castinetts and the Spanish Guitar playing in the light of the candels and soft lamp rays?
I love the beautiful movements of the Flamenco dancers and the beautiful dresses. This painting take me back to a time and romance of the Spanish dancers. A time of beautiful gowns beautiful music and beautiful dancing.
" Flamenco today
From flamenco's beginning in the 18th century most performers were professional. For most of the genuine life of flamenco, a folk art that has remarkably conserved an extraordinary level of conservatism within the caucus of european folk music, with its irredeemable rhythmic patterns and tones that mark its varied forms, or 'palos', flamenco has actually been the concern, like speech itself, of non-professionals in the countryside: goatherders, charcoal-burners, miners, and fishermen, for example. Further to this, it must be asserted that it is recognised by widely respected figures of its diffusion such as Pepe Arrebola, former President of the Pe�Flamencas de Andalusia, that it is the product of a certain competition between �payos�or non-gypsies, and gypsies or 'Roma', each with their own distinctive style, just as it is widely recognised by musicology itself that the lack of field-work in flamencology can truly retrieve the level of what intensity the non-professional impact of flamenco was and no longer exists, in terms of a community-wide spread and profundity: nevertheless, the subject matter of the songs themselves should alert them that the authors of the lyrics were not much concerned with urban themes, and this in turn should remind them of the land itself being the 'author' of the music" acording to Wikipedia on line
