Flamenco fever returns to Lagos
It is described as the “Portugal’s oldest flamenco festival” and has returned to Lagos to spread the flamenco fever.
Starting this Thursday and ending on Saturday (September 12-14), the ‘Festival de Flamenco de Lagos’ will once again put on an amazing display of Spanish dancing at the town’s cultural centre.
“Magical guitars with an identity of their own, beautiful and passionate dancing, and above all else, emotional voices” are described by organisers as the key ingredients of this event.
Featuring a “notable line-up,” the festival will bring three shows.
Flamenco Vostrum will be the first group taking the stage this Thursday (September 12), followed by Típicos on Friday and Victor Bravo CIA on Saturday.
All three shows begin at 9.30pm, with tickets costing €12. The event is organised by IBéRICA Eventos and Lagos council.
Flamenco is one of the world’s most popular dance styles and was declared Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO in 2010.
It is described by liveabout.com as “a highly-expressive, Spanish dance form.”
“The flamenco is a solo dance characterised by hand clapping, percussive footwork, and intricate hand, arm, and body movements. The dance is usually accompanied by a singer and guitar player.”
