Gypsy Children Singing & Dancing
In 1994 I began The Chanelar Flamenco Project as part of Dances of the World Society’s focus on preserving aspects of Flamenco in danger of extinction, specially the oral tradition.
I am delighted to share with you below an outstanding vintage documentary (produced by TVE- the public national television of Spain) where we can see kids singing, dancing and playing the guitar as part of family tradition.
It is interesting to note that many of these kids have grown to become famous Flamenco artists, including:
- La Macanita
- Carmelilla Montoya
- El Bobote
- Camarón de la Isla
- Remedios Amaya
Please tell me in the comments below: What aspects of Flamenco are you mots interested in?
