What you'll do

We will enjoy an intimate Flamenco Guitar Concert in Madrid, we will dive into the history of Flamenco through the sounds and melodies of the guitar.

You will be able to differentiate all the codes the flamenco musicians use in their concerts and understand how they communicate with each other during their improvisation. You will see how we compose our music based on the ancestral culture of the Iberian Peninsula.

The songs are composed by myself and based on the true flamenco traditions, the point of this experience is to get connection with the music by what the moorish called “duende”, which brings clarity and knowelegqment through the rhythms and melodies.

I have been doing flamenco experiences with Airbnb from more than three years, you can see my videos on @santiago_abello and you can read the reviews at my Airbnb profile!

During the concert we will have the opportunity to analyze some interesting photos about flamenco and its most relevant musicians, and how the most relevant artist of flamenco have change the history of this art and why.

Join me to understand the secrets of this great music that has been growing along with the history of the Iberian Peninsula.

This Experience is great for team-building. Book a private experience for your group. Is your group larger than my listed max group size for private groups? Send me a message.

My name is Santiago, originally from Madrid and I have been playing the Spanish guitar since a was a little child. From an early age, I got deeply interested in music through the flamenco voice melodies, and the genius of Paco de Lucía - of course!

For 30 years now, I am a flamenco guitarist and composer at the Dance School "Amor de Dios", the most renowned flamenco academy in the world. Throughout my career I have learned side by side from some of the greatest musicians of this art, who use to play with Camarón de la Isla and Paco de Lucia. And it is them who the musician that I am today.

A wonderful experience! Santi shared a great deal of information on some of the flamenco styles and I really enjoyed hearing the demonstrations. This experience has exceeded my expectations and I definitely recommend it!

Santiago is truly an amazing artist! He played beautiful pieces of music that require a lot of experience and technique. I felt like I understood the cultural and historical impact on the region and the music that no book or video could ever teach me. This experience was truly amazing and the photos helped me imagine what life was like in Spain's past. Thank you for teaching us about your passion.

This was a magical experience. We are really feeling bummed about not being able to travel during our anniversary (we always do). So this was a breath of fresh air to "go" to Spain and experience some real Flamenco music from someone who was not only an excellent player and composer, but also whose knowledge of the history of Spain through the lens of Flamenco was superb. Not only that, but he was super passionate about it. You know it's good when you walk away wanting to learn to play the guitar! Highly recommend!

CoViD 19 has made this year quite unusual. My friends and I couldn’t get together to celebrate my birthday in person but thanks to Airbnb’s virtual experience we found the concert with Santiago on flamenco music. It was so mesmerising and relaxing. He shared with us the various styles of flamenco and it’s history. Really enjoyed ourself. Definitely recommend this to anyone looking to do something fun but relaxing with friends.
