Research for an article 

Hello Flamenco lovers.

Disclaimer: I am a freelance writer/journalist. But also a Flamenco lover.

I am a Spain-lover who has visited Seville, Granada and Cadiz recently, and I am visiting Seville again from Wednesday.

I'm researching the practise of traditional Flamenco specifically in Seville, and the challenges facing it. For example, the closure of certain shows and venues that catered to a traditional Flamenco crowd in Seville; and other challenges facing Flamenco organisers/artists.

I am really interested to speak to local aficionados who can help me get a better perspective and picture of the situation of Flamenco in Seville with regard to venue closures - are they affecting the authentic Flamenco scene? If so, how? If not, why not?

Are other factors affecting the enjoyment of authentic Flamenco by locals in Seville?

Please let me know if you would like to comment, either on or off record. I am very much just researching at present.

Many thanks for reading. I work for quality magazines and broadsheets and am not interested in sensationalism or pushing agendas. If you would like to know my credentials let me know.

The crisis in España means that Peñas no longer have money from the Ayuntamiento. So how do they pay los artistas? The people no longer have money to go out at night. A Peña en Cádiz might pay 150 euros for a cantaor and guitarrista: the socios pay 1 euro la cerveza, but the barra is what pays everything. A private bar igual. Charge entrada y no viene nadie. So the barrra has to pay again.

Europa y Merkel, por envidía, han matado la vida de la noche en Analucía.

I believe many members here won't understand your post...

OP: I would suggest visiting many flamenco peñas if possible, you just have to speak spanish, I believe there you can learn alot.

No one has to..the post has bar room level. It's just absolutely not true. He's right about the crisis (I know that the situation especially in andalucia is horrible) but it's not the guilty of merkels policy. Merkel isn't powerful (The BILD-newspaper has more power!) She has not the power about europe. The spanish government has the freedom to decide to not follow the economy measures. But they are all bandits, not just Merkel. Thats childish

Lets not put this into politics but I must add that spanish crisis is about 100% because of spanish corruption.

By the way, OP since you want to learn about flamenco why not visit Jerez, it's one hour by train from sevilla!
