Sevillians often hear from those who visit the city that the Tablaos are artificial places, tourist hoaxes and do not want to step on any. We listen to it regularly and it doesn’t surprise us anymore. Why? Is it true?
Sevillians do not go to the Tablaos passes, it is true, because they attend concerts or events held in the city. Because they can, because they live in Seville. But that person who does not live here has a difficult time attending the Flamenco Biennial, which is celebrated every two years. It’s more complicated, you would have to focus your visit planning on that date. What if it doesn’t add up? Is there no flamenco then? !In sevilla??!
As we talked in another post, there are different types of Tablao but they all offer a sample of the incredible variety of styles that are part of this artistic expression. None is paper mache, that’s a black legend. All are authentic places, courtyards, rooms with columns and arches. And artists are not amateurs. Because if someone has believed that here we go with a gown and tacone in the super, is that really has believed the black legend!
