Our meeting point is Basilica de San Isidro, the main church for the madrileños. I want you to get to understand the importance of religion in the flamenco. Afterwards, we will explore the area of the Rastro market, in the heart of La Latina, where the Roma community of Madrid is really active. We will visit a guitar maker, a family owned business with a collection of guitars that date back to the 17th C. - We have the chance to see their workshop and understand better the hard work of this artisan. From there, it's time to dance! We will go to an official Flamenco school, where professionals do their training. I am a student myself (you never finish learning) therefore we have special permission! After one hour lesson, it's time for some tapas! I choose a famous historical tavern famous for its "gambas al ajillo" or garlic prawns. The perfect snack with their homemade wine. Then, a great show is waiting for us! You will have the chance to see amazing artists in a cozy venue I careful choose. -After the lesson, you will really appreciated the effort they put in every movement! This experience will cover every part of what Flamenco is about!
We love art & music, during our tours, our guests always asked us about Flamenco so one of us, Daniela ((https://www.airbnb.es/users/show/209447548), decided to create an itinerary about it. An itinerary that could show everything about Flamenco in Madrid: local artists, a lesson in an official school, tapas in a heritage taverns and a show to start the night! Daniela is a flamenco student and she has been studying the history of the Roma community for long time, so during the tour, expect lots of details about this community in charge of the Flamenco music in Spain.
