For the next edition of our series on Music From Around the World in partnership with BIC streams we bring you an enriching talk on Flamenco Music by musicologist and guitarist, Dr. Bethencourt Llobet.
Flamenco is a rich art form based on the myriad folkloric music traditions of Southern Spain. In this keynote presentation Dr. Bethencourt (Paco) Llobet will shed light on different approximations, methodologies and theories from which flamenco culture is researched, as well as the situation of flamenco artists and the venues where they perform. Thanks to new fieldwork carried out in Spain and to the contribution of flamenco musicians, Dr. Llobet will contrast particular music-histories in flamenco culture synchronically with different discourses of popular music and other studies of the Hispanic world.
