Mailing list

The German Flamenco Mailing List (in German)

There is another public unmoderated electronic mailing list started as the result of discussions about flamenco guitar playing on rec.music.classical.guitar but is intended to support the discussion of all relevant aspects of the flamenco tradition. It was originally at another site: flamenco@tethys.nswc.navy.mil, but moved on Oct. 28, 1994.

Possible topics include, but are not limited to, teachers, performances, music, videos, books, history, the future of flamenco, major people, technique, etc.

Anyone can join the list by sending e-mail to majordomo@world.std.com with a "subscribe flamenco" command (without the quotes) in the body of the message.

This list will be archived @ftp.std.com /ftp/nonprofits/dance/flamenco as well as the med-dance, books, videos, and music directories directly under the dance directory where appropriate.

For more information about flamenco, including reviews and discographies, see the Flamenco Guitar Home Page found on WWW at the following URL (uniform resource locator): http://www.teleport.com/~jdimick/fg.html

An additional source of flamenco related information is the med-dance mailing list. It covers the various Mediterranean dance types, including any of the folkloric dances from countries that, for the most part have a coast on the Mediterranean Sea. With that in mind, med-dance would be an additional place to discuss flamenco as well as other types of Spanish dance, as well as belly dance and the various Middle Eastern folkloric dances, along with Greek dancing.
