25 Dic Flamenco music, its relevance

Imagenpuerta-de-Zafra-126-150x150The health and vitality of flamenco in the current situation, indicates that enjoys very good health, that flamenco is not in danger and that is very well protected. There is a movement of Flemish rocks that preserve and propagate, we circuit board, councils, various international music festivals where flamenco is included in the holiday villages present flamenco.

  The creativity of flamingos, beyond the concept of «purity»

From my point of view, flamenco is not in danger, always in its history has been great concern about possible contamination. Demófilo, Falla, Lorca and later lovers of this music have been concerned about his «purity». Flamenco has always been evolving, creating new musical forms, both in how to play guitar like dancing or singing.

How to teach flamenco

But flamenco has a major weakness that is hindering him in his development, this is in his teaching as transmitted and methods of understanding. The major unresolved issue is spreading flamenco musical keys to increasing the level of knowledge of the whole group of people who are his peculiar world. We have to cover their romantic aura with all the musical knowledge that we provide scholars with great effort, we discover its essence and peculiarities of each day captivates fans all over the world musical art.

Another of its hindrances is the lack of practice and collaboration of artists in the work of research and creation.

We need to consolidate a community of Flemish researchers spread and disseminate their knowledge to all the members reversed in flamenco.

We must ensure that all studies on flamenco are widely disseminated, in order to take into account and can be used so that they can magnify the art of flamenco.

 

We could conclude that flamenco is firm, 30% of its potential, but we need to definitely propel from a musical look to discover its potential and this will make reverse in our society generating more artistic, more travelers seeking in our country works this flamenco which is already considered world heritage.

2019 PERFORMANCES

                 

Metamorphic Transformation

Observing metamorphic transformations in nature allows us to extrapolate that method to humans and the arts. That is to say, the foundational substance becomes a supporting substance retained in the new identity. These essential elements are absorbed, now invisible to the observer, while the transformed form creates a stunning awareness of the new.

Likewise, our compositions make use of a similar pattern of creative mutation, if you will. We begin with folk songs that poet Federico Garcia Lorca chose, rescued from oblivion, transcribed for the piano and performed in various venues. Following a trajectory of revealing hidden elements, we submit them to an unexpected metamorphic process. The melodic essences of the old songs are those that give musical meaning to different poems that Lorca wrote.

Additionally, in his short life, he created diverse artistic works, including poetry, music, and literature. He also created formidable works for the theater, while also embracing other mediums such as painting. His contemporaries and artistic collaborators included Joan Miro and Salvador Dali.

«Lorca in the Keys of Hands and Voice,” a concert conceived and presented by Adam Kent and Fernando Barros, is a musical innovation inspired by Lorca’s example. Lorca collected melodies from the Spanish folklore repertoire and transcribed them for the piano using two different concepts: 1) adapting the old melodies to various of his poem, as for example, ANDA JALEO to the poem «Preciosa y el Aire”; and 2) singing the old songs using the expressive, emotive characteristics inherent in flamenco music.
