Review on Flamenco Completo Workshop (Marija Temo & Ulrika Frank) Atlanta GA, 9-16-18/11

Flamenco Completo

The Flamenco Completo workshop returned to Atlanta in September, and as titled, gave students lessons in flamenco as a whole, in an integrated format with guitar, singing, and dance working together at once. Workshop organizers Gloriela Rosas and Rebecca Money Johnson were impressed in this latest workshop by a new, fearless student, who they say had no flamenco background whatsoever. “She signed up for Level 1. She followed pretty well and understood the concept, but the highlight was at the end when everyone got to do a solo. She was the first one to jump in and do the llamada to Marija. It was quite an achievement for a novice,” said Rosas. The Marija to whom Rosas refers is, of course, Marija Temo, a singer and guitarist who teaches Flamenco Completo with dancer Ulrika Frank, a former instructor in Atlanta.

From the beginner to the experienced, the workshop is a reflection of growth among flamenco students in Atlanta. “Atlanta flamenco students are getting better and better, challenging and asking for more information,” says Rosas. To meet the progressing students, she explains, Frank and Temo use clear demonstrations, prepared charts and varying scenarios that make students think.

As another friend takes off to Spain for a flamenco holiday, your happiness is perhaps tempered with the knowledge that you may not be able to participate in a similar opportunity any time soon. Such a trip could be personally prohibitive for any number of reasons: time, finances, or perhaps feeling you are just not good enough yet. But what if Spain were to come to you? What would you have to lose? And if it arrived at your doorstep, what would it look like?

According to Cristina Bermudez, who has been a part of the Atlanta flamenco community for nearly a decade, it would look a lot like The Flamenco Completo workshop, which is coming to Atlanta in September. And what’s more, she would be the first to say there is everything to gain by Flamenco Completo’s immersion. Read More »

The Whole Thing is “ON”

Calling all guitarists (and other string players) to try playing in flamenco style. By Rina Menosky UPDATED MAY 16, 2011

From few yards away, they sure look the same — but they sure sound different. Is it like the famous song by George and Ira Gershwin in 1937, (popularized further by Louis Armstrong and Ella Fitzgerald later): “I say ‘tomato’…you say ‘tomahto’…I say ‘potato’…you say ‘potahto’…?” Read More »
