Getting a bit emotional at the @ndcwales Flamenco Origenes show seeing the representation of Asian and Arab influences on the tradition being incorporated so lovingly into the performance
By the time the show ends with a bravura presentation of modern day flamenco, it is not just the dancers and musicians who are clapping and stamping their feet with enthusiasm. The audience has caught the energy as well, leaping to their feet with applause and cries of “Olé!”
