We had almost decided not to go to the flamenco last night. We had seen the posters, knew all about it, but hey, what’s the point of yet another flamenco evening? We enjoy the spectacle, and some of the music, but I think it’s safe to say that we prefer the dancing to much of the singing.
But we went along anyway. We feel it’s very important to support the town offerings, and to ‘show our faces’ as members of the community. Especially since you almost never see any other expats at the town cultural events.
Last night was just that kind of night. We were the only foreigners there. And it was terrific! The troupe was from Malaga, well known for its great flamenco. And man, was it good. The dancing, the singing, the backing band – all combined to make it an evening to remember. And all free.
