Have You Seen This Man?

Internets, did any of you see this man on "Dancing with the Stars" last week? For those who have not seen him before, his name is Joaquin Cortes and he's a rock star in the Flamenco world. He performed on t.v. last week, and he was fantastic! Oh. My. God. This man can dance like nobody's business! And don't even get me started on the long hair. Yum.

Joaquín Cortés is not taken seriously among flamenco connoisseurs. Male dancers to see, if you enjoy flamenco dance, are Israel Galván, Javier Barón, Antonio Canales, Antonio el Pipa, Andrés Marín, Daniel Navarro, Marco Flores...

Hi, Zata. Thanks for visiting my blog again. I guess you and I will have to agree to disagree on this one. I think truth in art is found when an artist presents himself and his message with sincerity. I appreciate that Cortes takes chances musically and stylistically.

Style is a subjective thing. I know some folks aren't too keen on Joaquin; the traditionalists are not that fond of Joaquin's brand of more modern flamenco. I think there's room for both types of dance in my world, but hey--different strokes for different folks, right?
