Caterina Pizzati, a Melbourne local talent, a formidable flamenco dancer, bailaora, astonished the RACV club with a spectacular array of classical and contemporary flamenco movements. Flamenco invokes passion and beauty. It is rare to see such a brilliant performance of solo guitar and Bailaora
This combination with Thomas Lorenzo and Caterina Pizzati is both intimate and powerful.
La Buleria is one of the most most popular and dramatic arts forms of the flamenco world which permits great freedom and improvisation. Harmonically it revolves around the flamenco phrygian sound, as it´s tonal centre.
Alegria in Spanish means happiness. It is performed in major keys. It does not generally use the phrygian tonal centre. As a simple comparison, the resulting harmonic structure and sound is closer to Celtic music than sounds that evoke Mediterranean culture. What makes it flamenco, is the rhythm and the chosen form of melodic expression.
Folk music and dance of Seville and its region in the south of Spain.
