Body & Soul - or matter and spirit – interrelates two apparently antithetical concepts into a single dialectical being which reflects the essence of music and its elusiveness - here and now. Body and Soul represents a mystic journey into the depths of Flamenco, a culture whose spiritus movens is music. Music is the beginning and the end of all things. The two main pillars of flamenco, music and dance, or the body and the soul as an ideal combination, are portrayed in this project. Its author, Carlos Piñana, unveils the peculiar meaning of Flamenco based on dualisms: joy-sadness, love-hate, life-death. The guitar represents the soul, which hides the most subtle shades of feelings translated into different styles of Flamenco music. Carlos Piñana combines traditional flamenco forms with his individual and charismatic style, to form a musical masterpiece of extraordinary virtuosity.
Body & Soul stands for the perfect combination of strength, lyricism and the deepest understanding of the art of Flamenco.
