The Flamenco show

The Flamenco show was one of the most popular activities in Tía tula. The other day, the famous flamenco group ‘Azabache’ came to the ‘Palacio de Congresos’ to show us what real flamenco is (Tía Tula purchased the tickets in advance).

Under the gaze of more than 300 people, the show started. It was full of not only students from all over the world but also the locals. It seems that no one wanted to miss the perfect opportunity to see a serious flamenco show in Salamanca. Three dancers, a guitarist, a percussionist, 2two singers and two ‘palmeros’ accompanied the group and actually the composition itself was simple.

There were various changes of clothing during the show. The singers kept the audience interested by singing beautifully during the clothes changes and it was interesting when an attractive male dancer who appeared in the middle of the show danced with the lady dancers passionately.

As a Spanish man once said “The whole point of flamenco is that it is a dance that unifies guitars, song and dance” and it was absolutely that.
