Aula de Flamenco
Flamenco is a world-renowned art, it is difficult to find someone who has not heard of flamenco, and probably the first word that comes to mind when hearing the word Flamenco is Ole!.
Those three letters can contain a wide range of feelings, such as grief, pain, joy, partying, love or heartbreak. And all of them are the result of the fact that Flamenco is an artistic manifestation that is born from the mixture of three cultures and three religions in the south of Spain in the 16th century, and that travels in time with its people as a vehicle for telling stories. stories of daily life, of preserving experiences from generation to generation, and that evolves with the influence of other airs that arrive from Latin America at the dawn of the 18th century until reaching our days as Intangible Heritage of Humanity.
