Flamenco Australia: YouTube Videos & Support Opportunity

Carmen_Amaya_1963I am a big fan of Paul French and his dedicated website and social media pages for Flamenco Australia.  It’s the sort of initiative in Australia that can only be achieved by people (in this case, Paul) who have an unswerving passion for an Artform that remains generally under-recognised, and far too little appreciated overall.  I can only applaud his tireless ambitions for developing an ever-increasing community of aficionados for this mesmerising Artform of Spanish song, dance and instrumental guitar-based music performance

When all is said and done, Flamenco is just ‘cool’.  Go on try it, you’ll like it!

In the latest newsletter (May 2013) which you can access from the above link to the website, you can check out the following links below, and several others not included in this post, to flamenco videos available at YouTube via Flamenco Australia’s Facebook page.  But more importantly, you can donate (as little as $1.00) to assist Paul move his ambitions forward with this worthy enterprise
