International Flamenco Day. Museo Nacional del Prado Wednesday, November 17, 2021

In collaboration with the Asociación de Tablaos Flamencos in Madrid.

The Museo Nacional del Prado joins International Flamenco Day.

Today November 16th, is International Flamenco Day, it recalls the declaration of flamenco as part of Unesco’s Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.

The Museo Nacional del Prado wishes to join this celebration by publishing a video, directed by Antonio Najarro, that reflects the bond between two of the most representative and international emblems of our identity to open the doors to culture: the Prado collections and flamenco.

The Museo Nacional del Prado and the Asociación Nacional de Tablaos Flamencos in Spain have come together with great flamenco and Spanish dance stars such as, María Moreno Pérez, Eduardo Guerrero, Patricia Guerrero, Cristina Cazorla, Alfonso Losa and Antonio Najarro, also the artistic director of the piece, who share their art and talent with the great masters of painting to celebrate International Flamenco Day.

This video is an invitation for the Spanish society to take part in cultural activities, now that the sanitary and health conditions in leisure culture are almost back to normal. By using the image of one of the doors being opened by creative talent, Antonio Najarro and the rest of the artists, pass on the idea that the artistic world is keen to be reunited with the public. Without public there is no culture. In the video, we also find another idea: a hope that society supports more than ever our creators, one of the groups that have most been affected by the pandemic. The Prado’s doors open as a symbol of all of the doors of the tablaos, museums, theaters, operas, musicals, concerts, to sum up, the doors of cultural life.
