My father is from Cádiz (Andalusia), and my grandfather was Extremaduran, I am 35 years old and I think of flamenco not only as an art , but also as a way of life , a feeling, a passion… and so, it is part of my everyday life; since I was a very little child, I have got up and gone to bed to the sound of bulerias, alegrias, fandangos and martinetes..
I have always thought that flamenco is the only thing that has given to me what I expected from it every moment ; if I need to dance , I listen to “El Capullo de Jerez”, but if I want to concentrate,then I listen to to Manuel Sordera, whenever I wish to cry , I look for a broken voice which sings solea for me, and this is how my days go by, and how my love for flamenco is growing more and more.
AN IMPORTANT DECISION
Today, I have decided to devote my whole life to flamenco and I want to live off this feeling, as well as to bring my profession and the world of flamenco closer; consequently, after several years working as an executive secretary in different sectors, I find myself in a personal moment in which I don’t want to waste any second, in the same way I don’t want to give up flamenco; I have just been a mother, and , for my son Manuel and for me, I have resolved to make compatible my livelihood and my personal project , and what I would like to do the most in this world is to be able to harmonize both things with my passion for flamenco.
YOUR FLAMENCO HOST IN MADRID
This is the reason why I wish to go on this adventure: I am planning to be a flamenco guide in Madrid, I have noticed that here and now there is not any service in which anyone, being a tourist or not, who wants to see a good show, different from the ordinary one, a service which goes further and leads you to the roots of this art; anybody who wants to feel for a while the same as I do every moment, will have the chance of doing it.
But you may be thinking… How? The answer is very simple: Just contact me. The only thing you have to do is:
– Tell me what style you would like to enjoy, such as just an intimist guitar and singing concert, a flamenco dance show, with some “DUENDE”(flamenco feeling or magic) for a while…
Then, I will find for you the best offers in Madrid whenever you need it;
I will make you different proposals, and go with you to the show you have chosen;
I will share with you and your companions a moment that I am sure you won’t fail to be impressed and moved.
In other words… I will arrange your visit and you will really enjoy it.
YOUR UNFORGETTABLE EXPERIENCE
If you want to feel this art live and direct , be passionate about it, and enjoy it in the front row accompanied by an experienced person, I am that person you must contact with. I am looking forward to helping you with your new experience!!
