Flamenco in Seville

Flamenco in Seville
It is said that Seville has a special color… and it is true. Seville is a magical city where you will feel history in the air. One of the most important cultural heritages that you can find here is “flamenco”.

Serafín Estébanez Calderón was the first writer who described it, nearly two centuries ago, in his book “Escenas Andaluzas” (Andalusian Scenes) like a typical dance in “Triana”. Since then, Seville is considered the cradle of this art style because it is the first place where flamenco was documented; although it is not sure that the flamenco was born here.

In this city, which combines many settled traditions and the beginning of a cosmopolitan town, you will find many places to enjoy this art, declared Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO.

Flamenco in Seville can be felt not only in the flamenco venues, but also in the theatres (highlighting the Teatro Central, where the artistic trends of avant-garde are assembled), and the neighbourhoods clubs, where artists and students discover their secrets. 

Guide of flamenco in Seville: main tablaos, shows, bars, festivals and academies

Among all the tourist attractions that you can find in Seville, flamenco is clearly one of the most interesting, since it attracts a lot of tourists.

Seville offers many possibilities to the flamenco lovers who want to enjoy a high-quality show. There are renowned flamenco venues (“tablaos”) thanks to many years of tradition, where dancing figures, such as Lola Flores or Manuela Vargas, have made known. Besides, there are “tablaos” that have been founded by famous dancers, such as Curro Velez and his “Tablao Arenal”.

Moreover, anonymous artists get together to practise singing, dance and guitar in pubs and clubs, every night in Seville. These are also the meeting place for many young flamenco figures who want to measure their strength, learn and improve their skills.  In these associations, they find the opportunity to rise to fame.

One of the most important year event in Seville (regarding this art), is the performance of the Bienal de Sevilla (Seville Biennial). The flamenco lovers must come to this event where more than 70 artists perform 20 performances approximately. Dancers, guitarists, singers and clappers arrive from all corners of the world in order to demonstrate their skills.

During the Feria de Abril (Sevilla Fair), Seville wears ruffled lanterns, ruffled skirts and “albero” (golden sand) for welcoming visitors singing and dancing “sevillanas” (typical dance). The most important week of the year usually takes place in April, and you can enjoy the cuisine, the horse rides on the “Real” and the magical lighting overnight.

Last but not least, for those who want to experience the passion of flamenco from another point of view, there is also the possibility of attending training centres where learning the more hidden flamenco secrets. From associations to private schools: a lot of places for learning flamenco dances, “cante jondo”, guitar and castanets.
