This class is ideal if you want to learn the nuances of flamenco singing firsthand from an authentic and professional flamenco singer. The class also encompasses how the singing interacts with the guitar and dancing. Although it is perhaps not immediately recognized and appreciated, the heart and soul of flamenco is, in fact, the singing (el cante). The class will focus both on listening to flamenco singing, and doing some singing yourself in order to gain a better, all-round understanding. The teacher will introduce you to various styles (palos) and highlight the differences within these (for example Tangos de Granada, Tangos de Extremadura or Tangos de Cadiz).

Each day you will be introduced to 1 to 2 styles with distinct regional origins but of the same palo. In order to be able to learn these songs, it is important to first listen to the singer and then attune yourself melodically and rhythmically. By actively imitating the flamenco singing under the guidance and direction of your teacher, you will become familiar with the differences, as well as the parallels, that exist between distinct styles. In addition, the singer will explain which styles and verses (letras) are suitable for dancing, how the singing is adapted accordingly, and which verses can only be sung.
