ˇOlé! Flamenco

by George Ancona

Published by Lee & Low Books, 2010
48 pages
ISBN: 978-1-600060-361-7

Ages 7 - 10

Janira Cordova is the youngest member of “Flamenco’s Next Generation,” a flamenco dance company in Sante Fe, New Mexico. George Ancona examines the living history of this fascinating art form that combines singing, dancing, and instrumental music. Flamenco originated among the Gitano or Roma peoples of Spain, where it is still passed down from one generation to the next. But it has also traveled around the globe like the people themselves. The distinct emotional and expressive nature of flamenco music and movement is captivatingly conveyed through Ancona’s text and dramatic color photographs, which seamlessly place flamenco within the context of both family and culture. In families like Janira’s, flamenco is a vital, vibrant part of their heritage and ongoing way of life. A glossary and pronunciation guide are included.  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
