Los Tarantos Barcelona Reviews
Good flamenco show in Barcelona Mar 22, 2011
I am a huge fan of flamenco. Whenever i go to Spain, i must find a tablao and watch at least one or two performances.
Barcelona and Catalunya in general are not exactly "flamenco destinations". Flamenco is has its roots in the south of Spain, but even in Barcelona you may find some good flamenco performances.
Los Tarantos is a small tablao, only a few tables and chairs, you can order drinks or not, it is entirely up to you. the entrance was about 6 euros the last time i was there - 2 years ago - they have about 3 performances per night, one performance lasts half an hour. It's short but intense i can assure you!this, if you are into this kind of music. The show starts with the guitar only, then come the singers and at the end the dancer. So it's about 20 minutes of flamenco music and 10 minutes of dancing.
I saw many performances there. every night they have another group performing.
I can recommend you the show with Gloria Palos and Juan Mateos. It was on Sundays back then but it can always change. Just check the program. Very good flamenco, i think you'll be pretty amazed.
