Flamenco in Granada

The pictures are a bit blurry because they were dancing so fast, but here are a few pictures from the night we went and saw a Flamenco performance. There were two dancers that danced alone and together, a singer, guitarist, and percussion player who was just using a wooden box to drum on with his hands. Definitely a must see if you are ever in Spain. It is such an important part of the culture, even if not practiced quite as much as it used to be. These Flamenco dresses are not only worn by the dancers, but by many Spaniards on holidays and celebrations such as Dia de la Cruz, a local holiday of Granada.
