This is superb (the link to your daughter) and thank you.
I was unable to reach "Flamenco in Canada.htm" so perhaps there is more to the address? The singer and musicians with your daughter were also commendable - I did not immediately see notes about who did what, and where the performance occurred (in Spain, I suspect). A very fine ensemble all together.
I intend to move to B.C. within the next year or two... I've friends who are nearby, and had composed for a friend who taught at Simon Frazer. I believe her daughter is teaching there now (and that's where my stepdaughter also studied dance a bit). I'll be north of Victoria rather than on the Vancouver side.
Buenas Dios Carmen - I am indeed very much an outsider. I listen to learn, and have few opportunities to encounter the form in person. I love full-heart singing, and befriended Elena Lopez from Las Canarias (Lazarote) several years ago through Roger Doyle. She sang me a tango in an abandoned granite quarry, where it resonated from the stone! It is still in my memory.
When I am next in Montréal I will take opportunities to find a club, and perhaps sometime will encounter your daughter. There is a small flamenco scene in Minneapolis USA I understand, and perhaps other small pockets of capable performers here and there that I may be able to travel to. Mili Bermejo has offered to teach me privately in the summers, if I can improve upon my Spanish. 8-}
Gracias Carmen - For a long time I have appreciated the intense concentration, skill and investment of soul given to flamenco and cante jando. Federico Garcia Lorca's writing (translated - I have very limited Spanish) on flamenco, duende and the singing of tango has touched me deeply, and informed me as a singer. I will follow you work.
Hello Carmen, Thank you for adding me as a friend. I also love Flamenco and Spanish dance in general. I have taken classes here in Miami with Rosa Mercedes (from Barcelona). These pictures are great. Tambien puedo escribirte en espanol si quieres.
