Pasodoble

Music plays a vital part in Spanish life. The temperament of Flamenco, the passion of Duende being played on the acoustic guitar, the Celtic music of Galicia with its bagpipe, the unique music of the Bascque region, the Zarzuela of Spanish opera, the spirit of Pasodoble, possibly the most representative rhythm of Spanish music.

The dance of Pasodoble is a regular feature at Spanish popular fairs and village fiestas, not only on the mainland but, here in Mallorca as well. Pasodoble tunes will be played at bullfights and Pasodoble marches have a firm place in the repertoire of Spanish military music. When performed as a dance by a couple, the male partner assumes the part of a torero and the female partner, that of the capote (dress cape).

The photo was taken in Felanitx, Mallorca, Baleares, Spain. The date: August 23rd, 2010. The time was 21:28:54.
