12 Jun FLAMENCO ART AS UNIVERSAL
Flamenco as a universal art, which is already subject to full cross hybridization is occurring with cultural globalization, and that puts us in the space of twenty-first century. But also in its gestation, it was modeled by all the influences that artists are forced to dive into the creative process.
Not only drank all the existing folk substrate in Andalusia, slowly settled with musical nutrients of all cultures that different civilizations brought when they inhabited our land, but also, came to be influenced by the zarzuela, the song, cabaret, classical music and many other musical expressions prevailing in Europe and Latin America.
The validity of flamenco is that music has been a gesture that artists, nineteenth century, that were bold men and women of his time, based on the musical tradition of his time, innovated, influenced by the cultural and political changes of his time. But around the time elapsed of the twentieth century, and walked XXI, creativity flamingos enabled the continued expansion of this great art artists, and therefore its disappearance.
The appeal of the international phenomenon of flamenco, is that without changing the essence of what was its expressive essence of transmitting
Emotions, passions of humans, death, love or hate, injustice, pain, etc. … if it has impregnated and adapted to the new times, new cultural changes that societies are endowed with globalization, not only economic if of all kinds. As sociologists say, the local has become global, and the global has been located, ” glocalization “.
Most of the shows created flamenco artistes presented by theaters in the world, returning to Andalusia with valuable stamp that posibilitad release in our land.
Flamenco has connected to the universal values that are present in all artistic expressions of his time such as beauty, the authentic, sublime. Otherwise we could say that flamenco has been adapted from the traditional to the ongoing social changes, which has enabled him to be in force at all times. According to Gerhard Esteingress, postmodern Flamenco has to be able to express the ambivalences and contradictions of our time from its musical tradition and its body expression, to continue to have the right to call flamenco.
