27.02.2018 /2: Museo Interactivo de la Música and a Flamenco Show

Spain96From the Museo Picasso Málaga we quickly headed to our next destination, the Museo Interactivo de la Música, Interactive Museum of Music, which was also included in the Red Bus tour discount package.

One of the reasons why we decided to visit such a museum was because the entrance fee includes a flamenco show!

Again, we managed to arrive to the MIMMA (Museo Interactivo de la Música Málaga) just in time. We basically walked right in, and few minutes after us there was a queue. Normally the entrance fee would be 5€ per person, which I think is still quite affordable but again – would we even have known of such a museum had it not been included in the discount tickets from the Red Bus package?

The museum is quite a quirky place. It contains musical instruments from different eras and actually allows you, as a visitor, to experiment with some of them! I can definitely understand why children seem to love the place. But the best thing is that it is not just limited to children – there are people of all ages trying out the things! And more importantly, you learn about the history of the instruments and music at the same time.

Also included in our ticket was a hour long flamenco performance, which was fantastic! The performance has three performers and we both were just transported to another world! The sounds, claps, dancing, guitar…

Flamenco has been documented for only a few hundred years, but there are stories passed along in families (through stories in flamenco) that tell us about the history of flamenco. It is known that first versions of it are from 9th century, and it kept evolving from there. Flamenco started in Andalusia, but has since then spread further. And did you know that flamenco has been listed as a masterpiece of the oral and intangible Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO since 2010?

Above is Jules’s recording of the MIMMA flamenco performance. MIMMA staff are generous in the way that they allow the recording of the first five minutes of the show.
