Spanish Flamenco Performance

Spanish Flamenco
A Spanish Cultural Evening in Mumbai featuring Flamenco performance by internationally renowned dancer Carmen Cortes and her husband, who is considered to be the best flamenco guitar players, Gerardo Nunez. A combination of colourful polka-dot dresses, castanets, mellow tones of the acoustic guitar and rhythmic clapping, made the performance very fascinating and foot-tapping.

Old Danish national costumes are something the museums are always pleased to exhibit. The garments are beautifully made and richly colored. But 'national dress' is in fact somewhat of a misnomer because there was no single type of costume worn all over Denmark. One of the main features of peasant costumes of the 18th and 19th century was actually their individual character.
