Flamenco (Spanish pronunciation: [flaˈmeŋko]), in its strictest sense, is a professionalized art-form based on the various folkloric music traditions of Southern Spain in autonomous community of Andalusia, Extremadura and Murcia. In a wider sense, it refers to these musical traditions and more modern musical styles which have themselves been deeply influenced by and become blurred with the development of flamenco over the past two centuries. It includes cante (singing), toque (guitar playing), baile (dance), jaleo (vocalizations), palmas (handclapping) and pitos (finger snapping). - Wikipedia
I have always been fascinated with the culture and traditions of other nations. It's like by having a little peek, you would know how the other half of the world lives. Be it food, habits or language - being aware of these things make it seem like you have travelled the world.
This is what Doña Elena, the leading brand of Mediterranean products in the Philippines made us experience when they presented the famous Spanish dance group Origen.
Origen showcases lively and passionate Flamenco performance - accompanied by soul-baring music to intensifying dance moves. The audience was captivated by authentic flamenco performance. The performance was even intensified by the music of the legendary Paco de Lucia, a Spanish virtuoso flamenco guitarist, composer and producer.
I've always had a fascination towards the Spanish culture. Sexy, sultry and foods that are flavorful. This, combined with the unforgettable Flamenco event anchors Doña Elena as a brand. They truly bring the heart of Mediterranean cooking into every Juan's homes.
