About the Event
Discover the history of the gypsy in Spain through the majestic and flamboyant art of flamenco. Barcelona's breathtaking Palau de la Música provides a stunning architectural backdrop for a performance that will open your eyes to the grand tradition that fuses dance, song, and instrumental music into a compelling narrative.
Bringing together several of the most important names in flamenco, the show traces the journey of two of the art's most famous families — the Farruco and the Amaya — from the Rhone valley to Spain in the 15th Century. Under the dark clouds of religious persecution and suspicion of the gypsy way of life, a gradual integration into Andalusian culture consolidated the enduring and idiosyncratic identity of flamenco. Incorporating diverse musical and cultural influences into a single, coherent dramatic and musical form, Flamenco demonstrates the power of art to unify and inspire.
