Taller Flamenco

Taller Flamenco is a learning centre for Flamenco and Spanish Language that was founded in Seville in 1994. The growing interest that already existed in flamenco all over the world, as a true cultural manifestation, as well as the attraction this art form, held for the non-Spanish public at large, led a group of young university students to set up a Taller Culturalwhich would, at the same time, be a flamenco school and place of encounter for these hundreds of young people who were beginning to love flamenco and the city of Seville as one of the epicentres of flamenco art.

Preview "Goede zang doet pijn" Flamenco Jerez de la Frontera

 

“When my family heard me sing, my father tore his shirt open” -- Jesús Méndez 

 

The Spanish town of Jerez de la Frontera is one of the main breeding grounds of flamenco. Cameraman and director Martijn Beenen and Ernestina of Noort, director of the Flamenco Biennial, went towards it, looking for the roots of this special, Spanish folk. 

 

They meet three generations of guitarists - Manuel Morao, Moraíto Chico and Diego del Morao - that the filmmakers already initiated into the secret of playing the flamenco tradition and buleria, the specific style of Jerez.
