For over 8 years Flamenco-World.com has had a web presence and has grown into on of the major flamenco web sites in the world. Now, as a result of demand from its readers/customers, it has opened its first shop in Madrid. The shop is located in Madrid’s well-known c/Huertas and has two rooms which display a variety of flamenco-related products, from CD’s and DVD’s to books, shoes, postcards, guitars, shawls, box drums and accessories. Their intention is the following:
“We want to cater to the demanding enthusiast, but also to the tourist and the curious seeking a place representative of that part of Spanish culture which is flamenco, presented enticingly and seriously, as heritage of the people and not just of sybarites”.
Walking along c/Huertas, which is one of the main centre’s of Madrid’s nightlife, a couple of weeks back I couldn’t help but see the shop front in daytime with its deep red colours – this is quite strange as the bars & restaurants of this famous nightspot tend to be invisible in daytime!
