Flamenco is one of the most famous art forms in Spanish culture. However, the stereotypical image of Spain as a country of bullfighting, sunshine and “”ole”” has obscured its true essence. In Flamenco, the journalist Clara de la Flor takes a look at it from its origins to the most modern experimentation. She also provides some keys to understanding the complexity of this music and discovering its styles or “”palos””. To finish off, it includes a selection of artists and songs that every flamenco-lover should know.
Marca España is the new image that Spain wants to project inside and outside the country: a creative, international society aiming at quality. Each book tackles a theme ranging from the business world to cuisine through the most important artworks. The text is accompanied with photographs, a footnote Spanish glossary, and another glossary in several languages at the end of the book, plus a variety of activities. Lastly, it comes with a CD containing the full text and a video.
