I wish I could go, but I'm not in Warsaw during that weekend...
Here you have a short film from 2007 - Angeles Gabaldon with bata de cola. I have just found in on youtube, you'll easily find some more...
Time for some more memories today :) Duende Festival, organized by Magellan Foundation, had it's three editions. I was lucky to attend a concert during the third one (November 2008). The concert which was one of my flamenco dreams come true - Mercerdes Ruiz performance. Don't need to say more... If you haven't seen her - just go to youtube to have w general idea and then - look for the live preformance... I don't have my own photos of the show, I didn't think it would be allowed for the audience to take pictures, so I had no camera with me. Maybe that's good - when you take pictures you can't really feel the show, I think. To read some more about the festival - go to the Duende's website, to see Mercedes Riuz website click here.
