FLAMENCO IS A MUSIC MORE?
Relatively recently, was frequent heard in flamenco circles, that flamenco was not music, but a feeling . And I say; Does the music in general, like any art, does not express feelings? If flamenco is expressed singing, playing guitar and dancing. Not another classical music as the yazz or any other? In my view the musical art of flamenco is very strongly marked by its aesthetic, a very peculiar way of singing, carrying voice tone heights very difficult to execute. The singing is more valued which makes breathing much holding. This peculiar way to get the flamenco, has given a label identifying it apart from other music.
NOT ONLY IS MUSIC FLAMENCO
What could have influenced the singing is done in this manner so peculiar and characteristic? Its ability to real and effective human and social feelings connection that goes beyond the purely aesthetic, but is worth a certain aesthetic capable of transmitting not only their music, but something else … And so has survived with its uniqueness and character and is related to the popular worldwide and are root primitive music, Afro-American, African or … In these cases the aesthetic is in the background, or as a tool for better transmission of emotions, emotions that They are only descriptive but implicative. That was precisely what fascinated the romantic … who saw him «truly human» way of saying that music.
Externalized flamenco music moods and do not forget the experiences of a people who sings and who gets their sensibilities to express their emotions.
But what factors and circumstances that have influenced flamenco and gestate, so? History and sociology bring us closer to finding the causes. The historical circumstances that Europe lived, after the French Revolution. The compromise of monarchical absolutism, as well express the Hurtado brothers, in his book «THE KEY OF MUSIC FLAMENCO», caused the birth of a cultural movement called Romanticism, which a need to seek the most primitive part of the stems human being. So radical that way, but the shot to play, dance and sing, gives it a racial and archaic character that was appreciated by the early romantic travelers.
Southern Europe, ie Spain and Andalusia was the territory extension containing these essences as palatable to some Central European intellectuals who saw in these distant countries, the free man, as desired. In music, there was the total art of the romantic ideal. Songs of the Andalusian people, its wild and rugged landscape invited to discover that ideal.
Grounds makes us conclude that much of the fascination of flamenco is due to its formal structure, ie the way to build the club and its powerful aesthetics as central to convey emotions that is sought.
Undoubtedly its semantic dimension, as expressed in his work Gerhard Steingress «Flamenco Postmodern» transports us to a set of realities that are very present in the Andalusian society, in a very subliminal way.
For me, flamenco is a musical art, strongly influenced by the aesthetics of Romantic music. For a romantic music it is inseparable from the feelings that seized to create a work.
For a flamenco equals, and would say, whenever a song or a dance or a touch is interpreted, their mood is reflected in its implementation.
