Today I found Jesus. Abel solves my flamenco fiasco by sending me into the arms of Jesus Olmedo, a dance teacher from Madrid who runs Flamenco Soul. Our first lesson is at my flat in Chelsea. Jesus suggests we tackle two of the four dances of a Sevillanas – a type of flamenco dance. We choose the song Lenta Con Cante by Pepe Roca to accompany us. It is rhythmic, serious and passionate
Flamenco Soul has been organising the Spanish Night in our restaurant "Trangallan" once a week since August 2012 bringing a variety of flamenco musicians and dancers of a high quality and professionalism.
"Flamenco Soul's Show is a very good presentation of Flamenco's diversity"
I contacted Flamenco Soul regarding a Spanish Guitarist for our weeding in Ibiza, I requested the song "somewhere over the rainbow" if possible when I walked down the aisle.
My husband and me were really surprised as Jorge played that song, He was very punctual, professional and an awesome musician.
