Flamenco, the dance of Spain, celebrates 10 years as intangible cultural heritage

flamenco

FLAMENCO was designated World Intangible Cultural Heritage by UNESCO on November 16, 2010.

To celebrate the tenth anniversary of this prestigious recognition which has helped to strengthen and assert the importance of this Andalucian artistic expression worldwide, the Junta has organised 57 different activities.

The programme to commemorate the tenth anniversary of flamenco will begin on October 28 in Malaga’s Cervantes Theatre with a performance by the Andalucian Flamenco Ballet.

Distributed between shows, conferences, round tables, master classes and exhibitions, these activities will take place in cultural spaces such as museums, theatres or wineries, always respecting the COVID-19 health and safety regulations.

In addition to the eight provincial capitals of Andalucia, there will be performances in Madrid and Barcelona as well as in ten other Andalucian municipalities: Adra, Berja and Vera, in Almeria; El Puerto de Santa Maria, in Cadiz; La Palma del Condado, in Huelva; Andujar, in Jaen; Antequera, in Malaga; and Moron de la Frontera, Mairena del Alcor and Carmona, in the province of Sevilla.

Andalucia is considered the heartland of Flamenco, although it also has roots in regions such as Murcia and Extremadura and is a badge of identity of numerous communities and groups, specifically the Gitano (Roma) ethnic community, which has played an essential role in its development.
