Flamenco in Cordoba | Cycling Andalucia

Flamenco in Cordoba | Cycling Andalucia

Flamenco in Cordoba is famous, and what would a cycling trip to Spain‘s Andalucian region be without seeing a Flamenco show?

I wouldn’t know, because last night we went to see some of the best perform.

Our two fantastic guides, Joan and Juan, suggested that the Tablao El Cardenal show was one of the best in all of Spain. They mentioned that many of the Flamenco shows were kind of junk, since it had become so commercialized.

This show, however, was definitely not junk created for tourists.

This flamenco show could compete for the world’s best.

Think that I’m exaggerating? Two of the dancers in this show had won the title for ‘World’s Best Flamenco Dancer’ in previous years.

So what does the world’s best flamenco dancer look like? You better watch closely, because their feet move faster than most people’s eyes.

The precision, musicality, and beauty of the dance are memorizing.

The women are dressed in elaborate dresses, and the men mainly in black. The show consisted of two guitarists, two singers, four female dancers, and one male.

Each of the dancers had their time in the spotlight. They collaborated at times, but Flamenco is frequently danced solo, and the most impressive performances were put on when it was just one of the dancers on stage.

What blew me away was the musicality of the dance.

The dancers play off of the singers and guitarists, and the reverse is true as well. On top of this, it’s in a 13 count, which makes it incredibly complicated. I think this dance must be in their blood to perform correctly.

 The beauty of the dance and the talent of the singers and guitar players made for a spectacular performance. ExperiencePlus! once again chose the best of the region’s culture and show it to us.
