#musicamondays #MusicMondays (28)

Welcome to the 28th installation of #musicamondays #MusicMondays, which features music from around the globe. Each song is selected to start your week off on the good foot! One still in the bed and the other in another country…

As anyone who knows me knows, there’s nothing like music from mi Espana amada to bring back good memories of good times. Hopefully, this will help ease you into your morning and give you some smooth jazzy flamenco from Chambao to go with your morning coffee.

Viva Espana!

 

#musicamondays #MusicMondays (21)

Welcome to the 21st installation of #musicamondays #MusicMondays, which features music from around the globe. Each song is selected to start your week off on the good foot! One still in the bed and the other in another country…

Less a song and more of an experience, this week’s selection is an excerpt from one of my favorite movies: Los Tarantos (Spain, 1963). This excerpt of the famous and talented Carmen Amaya, is just a snippet of the flamenco and gitano culture the film richly displays. She brings to life a rich subculture that has also married Arab, Spanish and Romani people. Amaya was born in Barcelona, but traveled the world including to Argentina and New York with her family and her dance company.
