Feria De Sevilla:
Every April, the town of Seville throws a week-long party attended by one million people. La Feria de Sevilla began as a cattle trading fair in 1847, and through the years has evolved into a great Spanish round-the-clock spectacle of flamenco, bullfighting and fun. Seville is considered the center of flamenco music and culture, a main genre of which is known as "Sevillana" because many of the composers and songs are from the city.
New York city boasts a great number of talented Flamenco musicians and dancers. The scene has been vibrant for many years, and dance an singing flamenco classes are currently very popular among New yorkers. It befits New York to celebrate the Feria and to bring many musicians from many traditions together.
