The Flair and Passion of Origen Flamenco brought to us by Doña Elena

I was so fortunate to be able to watch Spanish performing arts group, Origen as they performed a lively and passionate Flamenco performance at the Power Mac Center, Circuit Makati.  From the live music and vocals to the distinct intense dance moves, it was such an emotional experience to watch an authentic performance, which is inspired by the music of the legendary Paco de Lucia, a Spanish virtuoso flamenco guitarist, composer and producer.  Indeed, both music and dance come together with passion through Flamenco. 


Flamenco is a highly-expressive Spanish dance form characterized by hand clapping, percussive footwork, and intricate hand, arm and body movements.  It compellingly showcases a longstanding art form that features music as one of its rich elements.  In Origen, the old and deep sound of the flamenco guitar, in the hands of Alberto Marin is united onstage to the characteristic flamenco sound of the singers and to the fineness of the flute.  The music of the show does not only produce sounds, it speaks and it lives.  The flamenco dancers, Cristina Carrasco and Javier Serrano, are the ones that culminate the performance with force, dedication and passion.

Here are some photos during the show:
