Videos

I want to help you, my potential client to decide if I provide the right kind of entertainment for your event.

The following videos by no means show everything that I can offer, but I hope they are helpful to you in showing examples of some of the music and dance options that I offer.

Please contact me by e mail or by phone for more information or simply to talk through ideas that you may have about your event.

Example 1:

Intricate castanets with flamenco guitar to create a sweet, fun example of Flamenco with a South American flavour.

Here is a video of the lovely Guajira that originated in Cuba and gradually has found it’s place in Flamenco.

Tomás is accompanied here with castanets by (from left to right) Arancha, María García and Nuria.

 

In this example more than simply rhythmic accompaniment, there is an interaction between Flamenco guitar and castanets.

  • Some people believe that Spanish people who moved to Cuba in the 19th Century performed a Spanish regional dance and song and that Cuban musicians liked it and developed it with a more South American flavour.
  • The flamenco version that we see above shows both Cuban and Spanish musical characteristics.
  • The castanets are a very primitive and essential Spanish and Flamenco instrument even though they are also played in Spanish regional music and dance.

Example 2

Beautiful elegant flamenco dance.

Here is a video of the serious and sombre Soleares which features the dancing of Nuria supported by María García and Arancha and accompanied by Tomás.

Example 3

A slow gentle introduction leads to some very exciting flamenco hand clapping.

Here is a video of Bulerías played by Tomás and accompanied by flamenco clapping called ‘Palmas’ by ( from left to right) Arancha, María García and Nuria.

Example 4

This solo flamenco guitar masterpiece is very strongly influenced by the work of maestro Paco Peña.

Here is a video of Tomás playing Alegrías de Córdoba accompanied by the flamenco palmas of María García.
