Video: Soleá — The Flamenco of Seville

 

 

A flamenco guitarist shares the rich intensity of his city and his music.

Juan Ramírez’s days begin and end with flamenco – the iconic, traditional form of folk music from Andalusia in Spain that emphasises percussive guitar, powerful singing, fierce dancing and, above all, potent emotion. A dedicated guitarist, Ramírez makes a modest living in Andalusia’s capital, Seville – home to a legendary flamenco community – by accompanying dance classes. Soleá: The Flamenco of Seville explores the living present of the folk tradition in its most iconic city, showing how a vibrant history resonates through quotidian challenges, inspiring devotees and neophytes alike.
