Fandango

flamenco.jpg

I love music. Spain is great for music, not least for the prevalence of flamenco and fandango.

Both have their origin in Southern Spain, in Andalucía to be precise. I walked past a building in a neighbourhood of dereliction in Palma de Mallorca when I heard this loud and fiery fandango music coming from a window on the first floor (see photo). Fandango is an Andalusian courtship dance; I did not see the dance in the first floor flat, I could only imagine it.

I grant that not everybody will subscribe to my musical or visual likes and dislikes. That’s o. k. But this is my blog, and what I hear and see in Mallorca, definitely is part of real life on this island.

If you like flamenco music, you may like Quawwali-Flamenco, a 2 CD box set plus DVD, with music and performances by Faiz Ali Faiz, Duquende, Miguel Poveda and Chicuelo, distributed by harmonia mundi. I am listening to it as I speak (so to say).

The photo was taken in Palma de Mallorca, Spain. The date: December 31st, 2007. The time was 16:07:17.
