Enjoy with Me a Traditional Navidad Flamenca Celebration in My Native Spain through a Unique Multimedia Interactive Immersive Online Experience!
¡Hola! I am Puela Lunaris, the founder of Dances of the World Society. I am devoted to rescuing dance and music traditions in danger of extinction.
In the ancient village in Southwestern Spain where I was born, during the long winter nights, we and our neighbors gathered together, around the fireplace, to sing and dance to the rhythms of the tambourines, the zambombas (a Spanish friction drum), and whatever rhythm-producing utensils we could find in our kitchens.
Our elders sang the ancient Romances, which are ballads of breathtaking beauty that narrate soul-stirring stories from the times of our al-Andalus ancestors; we sang Villancicos, Christmas carols with a Flamenco flavor; and we also sang Coplas, traditional songs with sassy and mischievous lyrics.
That was so much fun! As a child, without even having to think about it, I absorbed profound lessons about life transmitted in the lyrics of the traditional songs and I learned to generate life force in my body by the power of the dance.
But, the first big change in our traditional way of life happened when TV came in. We were all fascinated -almost hypnotized- by this magical box. Then, we all just watched TV and we did not gather to dance and sing any longer. Well… except for Christmas!
Now, in most of Spain, neighbors no longer gather to sing and dance during the long winter nights, but there is a special place where the tradition continues… That is Jerez de la Frontera, one of the cradles of Flamenco!
In 2004, I felt the urgency to film and document this tradition before it was gone from the face of the earth because every time ancestral traditions are lost, we as species also lose the wisdom inherent in them.
Since 2004, I have been traveling to Jerez to research and saveguard the traditional Navidad Flamenca called Zambomba. In 2010, UNESCO declared Flamenco an Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity, validating the work we have been doing since 1994 safeguarding Flamenco as a folk art with its social practices, rituals, and festive events.
Now, I want to share with you what Flamenco as a Living Culture is like through this Fun, Interactive Online Experience. If you can’t come to Spain, let me bring Spain to you! Would you join me?Click Here to Join While Space is Still Available
