Flamenco: Finding New Expressions

Fiery • Passionate • Innovative

A NEW VOICE IN FLAMENCO

Fernando Barros 

Fernando is on the leading edge of integrating the traditions of flamenco together with his unique understanding of its cadences and rhythms. His original compositions and singing style reflect the “melody” inherent in the poetry and prose of his countrymen.

ANDALUSIA AUTHENTIC

Flamenco itself remains a quest for authenticity. Its early practitioners sought to embody the tenets of solidarity, fraternity and equality. In its purest form, flamenco is an expression of human emotions that are both intimately personal and universally shared.

Learning and Performance

Fernando Barros Lirola is on the leading edge of integrating the tradition of flamenco with his unique understanding of its cadences and rhythms, as well as the “melody” inherent in the poetry of his countrymen. His innovations include use of the voice as an instrument of positive expression, in combining traditional melodies with harmonies unique to the flavors and textures of the verses, and in engaging the audience in the meaning of expressive emotions.

THE STORY OF FLAMENCO

Inspiring Improvisation and Innovation.

Flamenco itself remains a quest for authenticity, for the pure expression of those human emotions that are both intimately personal, and universally shared. And while authenticity may remain elusive, the search for it will continue to play a part in any effort to redeem one’s humanity from an inhuman society.
