Fall for Flamenco Festival

When: Oct. 21-30 2009

For 10 days in October, you can fall for flamenco at this annual festival, run by Halifax's flamenco lady Maria Osende. The festival brings introductory workshops, master classes, free concerts and three larger concerts, including Flamenco Con Fusion (part of the Halifax Pop Explosion) and a show with guest Rafael Campallo, world-renowned flamenco dancer from Spain. Osende, who runs Maria Osende Flamenco Company, is itching to bring this festival to Halifax again. "Flamenco is not something from the past that keeps repeating; it's alive and passionate. Because it's so emotionally charged, people can relate to it, so the language doesn't matter." –Holly Gordon
