Online event

Flamenco is a World Heritage Site and is known and valued all around the World. Lecturer Carlos van Tongeren has organized a seminar in which he will explain the paths that Flamenco has taken as an art form from North Africa, which gives it its origins, through the cultural exchange with America, the exile of the artists under Franco's regime, and the rise of Flamenco in Asia. 

A perfect opportunity to get to know Flamenco around the world in English.

Second session: 'América: cantes y bailes de ida y vuelta'

This second talk will examine how the language of flamenco was shaped by the cultural exchanges between Europe, Africa, and the Americas in the colonial era. Using both historical and contemporary examples, we will zoom in on key flamenco styles such as the fandango and the tango, some of which have now become key symbols of Andalusian and Gitano identity, but which also have important relations with Afro-American musical repertoires.

Carlos van Tongeren is a lecturer in Spanish Cultural Studies at the University of Manchester. His research deals with issues of memory, performance, and music in modern Spanish culture, in particular since the end of the Franco-dictatorship. His next book is tentatively called Flamenco after Franco: Performances of Memory in the Spanish Transition, in which he studies how the multidisciplinary language of flamenco has offered ways for artists to voice personal and collective memories of the Franco-dictatorship. His previous publications on flamenco have appeared in academic journals such as the Journal of Spanish Cultural Studies and Studies in Spanish & Latin American Cinemas.
