Two-Way Flamenco
Faustino Núñez
Music Seminar
Events Room
Free admission until full capacity is reached, with an invitation that can be picked up from the centre’s ticket office from one hour before the beginning of the event.

At this seminar (given in Spanish), Faustino Núñez will offer an in-depth analysis of to what extent flamenco belongs to the Americas, and of the influences that can be traced to the early years of colonialism. Guitar in hand, the remarkable musicologist will give an account of how Amerindian elements are integrated into Andalusian music in general and the genre of flamenco in particular.

Friday 20 April

When I Left Havana: The History of the Habanera Song
Talk + Concert
Víctor Espinós Music Library. Multipurpose Hall
Free admission until full capacity is reached

Habaneras, songs with rhythmic, nostalgic melodies, have their origins in the arrival in the Caribbean of the contra dances of 17th and 18th century Europe. In time to sheet music preserved at the Víctor Espinós Music Library, we will hear habaneras sung by students at Madrid’s Advanced School of Singing (Escuela Superior de Canto), which will liven up the talk.
