Stretch out under a palm tree, a glass of sherry in hand, and get ready to dance the night away to flamenco – without leaving the capital. Thanks to the team at Mémoires au Present (who organized last year’s series of Algerian music concerts), February is Andalusian season in Paris. Don’t miss the chance to discover the bulería, a kind of sped-up flamenco performed here by a band of notable Spanish musicians and dancers. Veteran dancer Concha Vargas is one to watch: her passion and undeniable charisma epitomize the Spanish gypsy spirit, and provide the perfect antidote to the hordes of forgettable pop stars clogging the contemporary music scene.
