What you'll do

We will enjoy an intimate Flamenco Guitar Concert in Madrid, we will dive into the history of Flamenco through the sounds and melodies of the guitar.

You will be able to differentiate all the codes the flamenco musicians use in their concerts and understand how they communicate with each other during their improvisation. You will see how we compose our music based on the ancestral culture of the Iberian Peninsula.

The songs are composed by myself and based on the true flamenco traditions, the point of this experience is to get connection with the music by what the moorish called “duende”, which brings clarity and knowelegqment through the rhythms and melodies.

I have been doing flamenco experiences with Airbnb from more than three years, you can see my videos on @santiago_abello and you can read the reviews at my Airbnb profile!

During the concert we will have the opportunity to analyze some interesting photos about flamenco and its most relevant musicians, and how the most relevant artist of flamenco have change the history of this art and why.

Join me to understand the secrets of this great music that has been growing along with the history of the Iberian Peninsula.

This Experience is great for team-building. Book a private experience for your group. Is your group larger than my listed max group size for private groups? Send me a message.

My name is Santiago, originally from Madrid and I have been playing the Spanish guitar since a was a little child. From an early age, I got deeply interested in music through the flamenco voice melodies, and the genius of Paco de Lucía - of course!

For 30 years now, I am a flamenco guitarist and composer at the Dance School "Amor de Dios", the most renowned flamenco academy in the world. Throughout my career I have learned side by side from some of the greatest musicians of this art, who use to play with Camarón de la Isla and Paco de Lucia. And it is them who the musician that I am today.

I love Spanish guitar, music culture, and history. I listen to it every day without fully understanding the rhythms, however, taking this experience help me distinguish certain rhythms and where they originated, now I have a new appreciation and love.

Santiago was an amazing Host and is truly and world class musician. I enjoyed every second of the experience from the history that he shared to hearing both recordings and live music and that really brought the whole experience to a very special place for me. It gave me a sense of traveling when the entire time I was on a computer. It was fun and easy to talk with Santiago and helped give a deeper sense of connecting with someone who has a true passion for their craft as a musician. I would recommend this to any music lovers, travelers, as well as anyone looking for an enriching experience full of cultural history, music and fun!

Great trip through Spain exploring the styles of Galicia to Andalucia and byond. Santi is an amazing musician and shares a lot of history and links it to musical theories. The experience helped me understand another dimension of "flamenco". Indeed, even the name "flamenco" has an interesting origin story you'll learn about in his experience!

Although I had attended a Flamenco show when I visited Spain, Santiago added fascinating information about the origins of Flamenco and the differences among Regions. We thoroughly enjoyed listening to him play the guitar. It was the perfect way to spend the afternoon and definitely made us want to return to Spain! Highly recommend⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
