Last night, I had an opportunity to watch a flamenco show being performed by a famed Spanish dance group called Origen. It was at the Power Mac Center Spotlight, Circuit Makati. This event was presented by Doña Elena, the Philippines leading brand for Mediterranean products.
I seldom attend events in the Philippines (as traffic is very stressful) so, if have to attend, it should be worth it. My friend who invited me said only two words before I replied yes, TAPAS and FLAMENCO.
I have been to Barcelona before and I always crave for an authentic Spanish cuisine ever since I went back to the Philippines (and tapas and paella negra are on top of my list).
This exclusive event showcased Doña Elena’s Spanish Heritage. From food (cheers to tapas) and the lively performances.
I really enjoyed the show. The dances were so intense, that the audiences’ eyes were just transfixed on the performers. According to the organizers, the performances were inspired by the music of the legendary Paco de Lucia, a Spanish virtuoso flamenco guitarist, composer and producer.
With all the countries I have been to, I always enjoyed watching cultural dances, there is something about these performances that speaks to you. Even if you are from a different heritage, you can still feel connected.
So happy that I have watched this! :). Origen promised to come back to the Philippines later this year, I’ll keep you guys posted.
