The Sounds of Flamenco
July 20, 2005
Over the next several days, the air in Portland will be filled with the sounds of flamenco the nimble strumming of guitar strings, rapid-fire clapping and the percussive clack of dancer's feet on the dance floor.
The first Portland Flamenco Festival runs through the weekend.
Gretchen Lehmann stopped by Solo Flamenco dance studio in Southeast Portland to get a sense of the history and passion of this 15th century dance, rooted in gypsy culture.
