  Bajari: Gypsy Barcelona  
(Movie/Film)

As believed by the Gypsies, Flamenco cannot be learned in a dance school or by reading music. It is lived within the home; it is created at the bar; its artistry is perfected on the street corner. Bajari goes to all those places, following in the steps of its two main subjects: Karime and Juanito. The young bailaora (flamenco dancer) Karime Amaya is working with some of the most talents up-and-coming musicians and dancers to create a show that blends the Gypsy Flamenco tradition with Barcelona's Rumba tradition. Little 5-year old Juanito Manzano takes his first steps to dance in the show and earn his flamenco boots, despite kidney problems and against his parents' wishes. Their adventures and experiences become a journey of discovery of this living tradition and create and intimate portrait of how flamenco's legacy is kept alive within Barcelona's tight-knit Gypsy community. A must see documentary for music and dance lovers, Bajari: Gypsy Barcelona is a private window into the intimate world of this vibrant and living art form.
