Inaugural Blog Video: Carmen Amaya and Troupe: "Bulerías"(1961)

November 16, 2013

To celebrate my first Blog post in my new website I'm sharing one of my favourite clips, featuring Carmen Amaya. Of course.

 

The atmosphere is electric! The palmas are complex and fast. The jaleos are invigorating - all in support of Carmen, while she calmly declares..."I have arrived".

 

The stylish costumes are fresh and breezy.

 

Carmen Amaya's style is unique.

 

Bulerías compás:

• 12 beats.

• Accents normally:  12. - - 3. - - - 7. 8. - 10.

 

Tell me what you think, and what you especially like in this video.
