The flamenco singing course, led by David Bastidas, is another part of the series of workshops that cover various disciplines such as singing, dance, guitar and percussion. With a long professional career in the field of flamenco, David guides students through a detailed and clear process that allows them to deeply understand and appreciate the art of flamenco singing and gives them an understanding of how singing works with flamenco -Dance and the guitar are interwoven.

The course begins with the analysis of the selected song lyrics (the "palos" will be the same as in the choreography courses), dissecting them to understand their meaning and background. Students explore each word and phrase, unraveling their context and underlying emotions. This first phase lays the foundation for an interpretation that is more authentic and soulful.

The students then dive into the melody and break it down sentence by sentence. David walks them through each note and intonation, ensuring they understand and master every detail of the melody. This attention to detail guarantees a precise and expressive performance.

Once both the lyrics and melody are mastered, they are integrated to form a complete and coherent interpretation. Students learn to seamlessly combine words and notes to create a melody that faithfully reflects the message and emotion of the song. Finally, students refine their singing by working on pitch, rhythm and expression and perfect their technique.

Throughout the course, the interaction between flamenco singing and dance is emphasized, allowing dancers and musicians to execute their art in a fluid and logical manner. David, with his extensive experience in dance accompaniment, will naturally share his profound understanding and knowledge of the subject. This helps to grasp the importance of synchronization and interaction between music and movement in flamenco.

Not only does he teach vocal techniques, but he also offers students the opportunity to immerse themselves in the very essence of flamenco.
