Gualberto y Orquesta de Cámara SUITE FLAMENCA EN RE Sep. Sat 22 | 23:00 | 20,00€ | BUY

As well as the French, German or Italian suites are formed by dances, such as the Minuet, the Zarabanda the Bourrée, Courante etc, this flamenco suite is also formed by dances as in the Baroque suites, but in this case they are based on the traditional flamenco styles, such as Segiriya, Soleá, Bulerías, Alegrías, Tanguillos etc.

Each flamenco club is a dance, but also a cante, and I’m not going to go into what was first if the hen or the egg, the cante or the dance, but in this suite both will be represented in the spirit of music or except that is my intention.

The instrumental part will be in charge of the classical instruments, as in the baroque suite, but the flamenco cante and melodies will be interpreted by the Sitar, an Indian instrument that I will play myself, and who have the ability to imitate the voice because they are built for that purpose, since Indian instrumental music is mainly based on vocal music, and all its instrumental development is based on its cante full of melismas very similar to those of flamenco; that is why with these instruments you can “sing” imitating the melismas characteristic of flamenco singing.

In this concert classical and ethnic instruments are mixed to support the flamenco spirit.
