There is always a lot going on in Barcelona. And the summer months are no exception.
From June 28 till July 7, Barcelona Festival of Song is on. This is a festival dedicated to Latin American and Spanish vocal repertoire. Best of all, all the concerts are of free entrance! Check out the program here.
From today and all through July the 35th edition of the Festival Grec is on in Barcelona.
Just because I couldn't say it better, here is the description from the website:
We hope you will find the festival to be a door that opens onto the world of the performing arts, theatre, dance, music and the circus. A rich and complex cultural world in which all can find a place to dwell.
Looking at the calendar, every single day has a wide selection of shows, so if you are in Barcelona in July, check out the program for Festival Grec!
Another festival going on in July is the Festival Flamenco d’Estiu (Summer Flamenco Festval) 3 days; 5th, 6th and 7th of July there will be a Flamenco concert/show, and according to the website, the artists are big names in the Flamenco world. They had my attention with this photo/poster:
Flamenco is an artform that is just so Spanish and it fascinates me. I have seen a couple shows and I love to observe and get sucked into the drama and passion this dance encompasses. It's hard to explain, but I don't really understand it. There is so much emotion, feelings, pain and passion in the dancing, the clapping and the singing, but although I can't really identify with it, I love observing it. It is so foreign to me, yet so enchanting.
Have you ever seen a Flamenco show and what's your thoughts?
