Enjoyed the Flamenco Show in El Albayzin

Have you been to the region of Andalusia in Spain? If you did, you are for sure very familiar about this famous folk music and dance in Andalusia called Flamenco. It was so far one of the most memorable holiday I did in 2011, visiting some cities in the region of Andalusia  including Seville, Granada and Cordoba. We also visited Madrid, Spain’s capital city and Toledo that time.

We paid extra for a night sightseeing and for watching the Flamenco show in El Albayzin. Also included is a glass of wine while watching the show.  I found flamenco very interesting. As you can see on the photos on the right side, a man was also playing the guitar. Thinking if this guitarist is also browsing  a classic meinl cajon at musicians friend.  What do you think?

For all you know,  Flamenco is a form of Spanish folk music and dance from the region of Andalusia in southern Spain. It includes cante (singing), toque (guitar playing), baile (dance) and palmas (handclaps). First mentioned in literature in 1774, the genre grew out of Andalusian and Romani music and dance styles.

Before watching the show, we first  had a night sightseeing  in this lovely place of El Albayzin. The night seems to be very romantic. If you are in El Albayzin, you will have a good view of the famous Alhambra in Granada.  It was a superb evening we had.

If you are visiting Spain especially Andalusia, I recommend that you watch a flamenco show. I truly enjoyed watching it.
