Flamenco is Spain's national art form, and a UNESCO-sanctioned 'Intangible World Heritage.'  However, despite its continued prominence on the world music scene, few people know of Flamenco's wide range of influences, or the various forms it takes throughout the country.

"Hola, Flamenco" seeks greater understanding about the origins and evolution of Flamenco.  We will be traveling through Andalusia this summer to film performances and interviews with some of Spain's top performers and personalities--along with musicologists, historians and ordinary Spaniards.  All demonstrations will emphasize the more subtle aspects of Flamenco, including guitar strum patterns, dance postures and gestures, as well as song lyrics.

The film will present Flamenco as an ever-changing art form with, and will include differing opinions about its "true" style.  It will also include a survey of Spain's colonial history, as well as its Muslim, Jewish, Catholic and (Roma) Gypsy influences.

Your generous funding will help our film crew with travel expenses, equipment rental (lighting & sound in particular), as well as post-production costs and promotional expenditures.
