Puerta de Jerez, Sevilla 2017
Seville’s flamenco roots run deep. A mixture of east and west, of gypsy music and the rhythms of North Africa, brought to Andalucía by the Moors – as well as a rich blend of Catalonian ballads, synagogue music and Gregorian chant. It is a unique artistic expression based on convergence, and its unrestrained rhythm and anguished melodies lend Seville its passionate soundtrack.
