Masters of Flamenco: Early Television Concerts
The excitement of flamenco dance is the result of years of arduous training. Difficult to master, and requiring the talents as well of specially trained guitarists and singers, it is not for the amateur or the faint of heart. Before the popularity of motion pictures featuring flamenco dance, few people outside of pain knew the art. Yet it has gradually caught on. Flamenco dance troupes are now seen every year in some major U.S. cities, and flamenco techniques are even taught in university dance courses. However, a generation ago flamenco dance was a rare import. This DVD brings together performances for some of the great artists that thrilled audiences in the mid 1960's.
