07 Oct Manuel de Falla, Flemish ambassador.
The composer Manuel de Falla falls for flamenco music
Many of his works as a composer he wrote, are infused with essences that got flamenco music. But I also became concerned in 1922 to organize a flamenco singing competition in the city of Granada where he lived. This competition is being prepared by a group of intellectuals including Grenadians were Federico Garcia Lorca, Heriminigildo Lanz etc …
Failure admiration for flamenco exposed him to the world
The impact between the musicians and intellectuals love Flamenco influenced by this so special music that emerged in southern Europe in the mid-nineteenth century to appreciate. So I think that was one of the first ambassadors who had the Cante Flamenco.
If you have already declared flamenco as Intangible Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO and this event does to this art a great value and international media, the work of Manuel Falla, consider it equally important that the present statement of world Heritage Site.
