Flamenco in Seville

Flamenco is the most pure expression of the Andalusian soul. Its origins, still unknown, are related to the gypsies’ arrival to Seville and Cadiz fields in the 15th century. Among other theories, it is believed that they came from a North Indian region called Sid, actually part of Pakistan, from where they run from some war conflicts or maybe foreign invasions.

In the middle of the 19th century, it became popular through the cafes known as “cafés cantantes”. The first one opened in Seville around 1885. Since then, flamenco is a complex concept, with several variables and difficult to attach to a unique social or ethnic group. In Seville, visitors can enjoy daily flamenco shows thanks to the direct heirs of the “cafés cantantes”: the “tablaos flamencos”. There are shows in the different old neighborhoods and in small town festivals.

Bienal de Flamenco

Among all the annual festivals, it is remarkable the prestigious Bienal del Arte Flamenco, celebrated every two years, that gather the most important figures of flamenco singing, dance and guitar playing. This event has been on for over 25 years, making this culture internationally known within the Seville society and serving as a prime showcase for the flamenco in the World.
