CD Review by Graham Blackley
Since 1999 Flamenco Fire has brought the adrenaline-fuelled and sensual world of flamenco music and dance to Australian audiences.
Listening to this CD, which was recorded live at The Judith Wright Centre of Contemporary Arts in Brisbane in June 2005, is guaranteed to make you wish you could be transported to the gig as the audience sounds as if they are having a whale of a time.
The enthusiastic cheering, whistling and applause complement a visceral performance which positively leaps from the speakers.
Obviously, listening only to the music means that we miss out on the eye-catching sight of flamenco dancers strutting their stuff.
The glorious thunder though that erupts when feet stomp the stage will have you visualising the colour and movement whipped up by the dancers.
The performance encompasses a rich variety of sounds and moods and the musicians are skilled in bringing uptempo tunes to life whilst also creating a reflective atmosphere on the quieter numbers.
If you are feeling lethargic and in need of a lift, buy this CD immediately as it’s a feelgood treat that is likely to put the spring back into your step.
