Flamenco is a fitting topic on the eve of the the 65th consecutive Spanish Market in Santa Fe. We went to see the exhibition FLAMENCO: From Spain to New Mexico at the Museum of International Folk Art yesterday. We took this photo of some of the clothing on display which included elaborate flamenco dresses, embroidered shawls and men’s dance costumes. The show, which opened last November and runs through September 10, 2017,  features over 150 objects, some of which belonged to flamenco greats including José Greco, Incarnación López y Júlvez  as well as New Mexico’s own Vicente Romero and María Benítez. You can even learn to use castanets. If you’ve never seen a live performance of this stirring art form, Santa Fe is the place to remedy that.
