Flamenco: Rutas por Territorios Flamencos

I promised Indian Couple I would post this info re flamenco.

Junta de Andalucia has posted information online re informative presentations along the flamenco routes called "Rutas por los Territorios Flamencos". They include visits to several cities along specific routes famous for flamenco, basically the area of Andalucia known as the cradle of flamenco (cuna del flamenco). These are intended for those interested in more in depth information re: flamenco and it's components (cante, guitarra & baile). They include some classes, some private shows & and lectures or demonstations. It looks like there is a limited schedule & reservations must be made. The great news: I hear they are either free or very inexpensive. These are not big productions rather more simple settings and not at all fancy. Again some include small performances but others are more like lectures intended for better understanding of the varios styles of singing (cante) and dance as well as the guitar. One does not need to dance.
Of course this will not appeal to everyone and not at all like the famous flamenco festivals such as the Bienal but I thought I would share it.

I have been tring to get more specifics and pricing. I am in touch with someone who went recently as a guest of the Junta and will share more as I learn about it.

If you already know about this please share, I would apprecaite any more info.

Here are some links:

and more in Spanish

More specific info to come hopefully

amsdon, thanks for the post. Why don't you post this message again in the "Spain" section, instead of the "Europe" section, as most flamenco seekers may be looking exclusively in the "Spain" section of this site.
