Overview

Flamenco is one of the quintessential aspects of Spain and the Spanish culture. A dramatic form of song, music, and dance, flamenco long ago began to thrill and captivate the world outside of Spain, even though its true character and purpose have often not been fully understood. The culmination of centuries of folk tradition, originating in the expression of suffering, lamentation, and protest among gypsies and other oppressed peoples, flamenco has evolved into an entertainment by professional musicians and dancers that is popular with audiences throughout the world. Gwynne Edwards, an expert on the Spanish language and literature, provides a text that clarifies and illuminates the complex history of flamenco, from its beginnings in old songs that are still sung today, to its sophisticated presence in the modern repertoire of leading singers and dancers. He describes and analyzes the religious and ethnic influences on flamenco; its place in literature; the themes that appear in its passionate songs and the various ways in which they are sung; its grounding in Andalucia; the famous flamenco singers of the past; and the twentieth-century revival of its basic meanings under the aegis of the poet Lorca and other Spanish notables. Ken Haas's original color photographs of flamenco today, and the background against which it flourishes, form a complementary essay on a unique and enthralling art form. 157 photographs and illustrations, 60 in color.

Editorial Reviews

Joan Stahl
Flamenco is passionate, romantic, and dramatic, and care has been taken to convey these qualities through the book's design.
Sara Jarrett
Captures the essence of the artform. . . . The images are exquisite.
Time Out London
Seriously gorgeous . . . it's the astonishingly immediate and direct photos that make this book such a treat.
Library Journal
This introductory text elucidates the complicated history of flamenco, Spain's traditional and ritualistic form of song, music, and dance. The meaning and origin of the term flamenco have been debated, and the contributions of Gypsies, Andalusian nobility, and Moors to the development of this native art have been variously interpreted. Edwards (Spanish, Univ. of Wales) clarifies the multifarious opinions, presenting flamenco within social, cultural, and historical context, spanning from the 15th century to the present. He outlines and illustrates the categories of flamenco and presents brief information on the careers of leading musicians and dancers. A concluding chapter examines flamenco more broadly and considers its links to religion and bullfighting. Flamenco is passionate, romantic, and dramatic, and care has been taken to convey these qualities through the book's design: the text is on bright yellow paper, and almost every page includes engaging black-and-white prints and historical photographs. Full-page color photographs, frequently close-ups, capture the color and excitement that is synonymous with flamenco. Recommended for public libraries.--Joan Stahl, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Washington, DC Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.
