Madrid Flamenco

Information on how to see the best flamenco in Madrid, Spain

Flamenco dancers or bailaores

Madrid has been listening to the best flamenco since the early 19th century and has seen the best artists triumph here. Several activities surrounding this art form continue to flourish, although the well informed magazines such as Alma 100 and La Caña together with the radio program Madrid Flamenco are all now defunct, there are still hundreds of dance academies such as the famous Amor de Dios academy in Fray Luis de Leon street, and many great flamenco shows in theatres and tablaos.

Flamenco can be seen or heard in many bars and taverns in Madrid. You might go for an evening meal to one of these places, and listen to the music afterwards.

The best flamenco in Madrid can be seen at the Corral de la Moreria "tablao" flamenco restaurant and other similar tablaos. Widely recognised as being the premier flamenco restaurant in the city, the Corral de la Moreria attracts quality artists and offers some marvellous Spanish food. Click here for more info...

You could start off your day at Casa Patas, La Torre del Oro or Viña Pe, where you could sit down for lunch or just order a wine, some "tapas", listen to the music and take in the flamenco atmosphere.

Later in the afternoon why not visit Madrid's specialized flamenco shop, El Flamenco Vive at number 7 Conde de Lemos street, to buy a CD or book ?

You could also head to El Abuelo in Calle Paz or Clan in Ribera de Curtidores for more tapas in bars with a flamenco ambient. On Wednesdays, one of the best places is El Mago, also in Calle Paz.

In November 2010 flamenco was inscribed in UNESCO's Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.

This is what UNESCO has to say about flamenco:

Flamenco is an artistic expression fusing song (cante), dance (baile) and musicianship (toque). Andalusia in southern Spain is the heartland of Flamenco, although it also has roots in regions such as Murcia and Extremadura. Cante is the vocal expression of flamenco, sung by men and women, preferably seated, with no backing singers. The gamut of feelings and states of mind – grief, joy, tragedy, rejoicing and fear – can be expressed through sincere, expressive lyrics characterized by brevity and simplicity. Flamenco baile is a dance of passion, courtship, expressing a wide range of situations ranging from sadness to joy. The technique is complex, differing depending on whether the performer is male (heavier use of the feet) or female (gentler, more sensual movements). Toque or the art of guitar playing has long surpassed its original role as accompaniment. Other instruments, including castanets, hand-clapping and foot-stamping are also employed. Flamenco is performed during religious festivals, rituals, church ceremonies and at private celebrations. It is the badge of identity of numerous communities and groups, in particular the Gitano (Roma) ethnic community, which has played an essential role in its development. Transmission occurs through dynasties, families, social groups and Flamenco clubs, all of which play a key role in its preservation and dissemination.
