Flamenco Explained is: a book, video tutorials, a philosophy.
Kai Narezo takes the intimidation out of learning to play flamenco guitar - for fun and alongside the art with dancers and singers. Join in on the juerga with Kai and other guitarists, dancers and singers in our online community both for free and subscribed video tutorials and method book lessons.
Flamenco Explained - The Guitarist's Survival Guide, is the first book that breaks down the inner workings of flamenco and helps the guitarist truly understand this amazing art form. Flamenco Explained presents the underlying architecture of flamenco in a new way that is accessible to all musicians and prepares the aspiring guitarist to accompany flamenco dance and cante and communicate with other flamenco musicians. Flamenco Explained has already been used as the foundation for Berklee College of Music's first ever flamenco guitar class.
