Rabbi Jacob il va danser!
CHAI! CHAI! CHAI! CHAI! L'CHAIM, GODDAMMIT!
Louis de Funès is Rabbi Jacob.
Did I mention that my father looks like Louis? I used to confuse both when I was young and kids used to try to get his autograph.
Funny! I had a childhood-nostalgia episode recently and re-watched Fantomas and some of the Gendarmes movies...
Tango masculino in Calle Florida, Buenos Aires
Been there, seen that!
Note the single hand grip--that's how bored caballeros awaiting their turn with the hos danced together in the bordellos, back at the birth of the tango...
(I'm an old Deadhead)
(Will the animation carry over...?)
Martha Graham, ladies and gentlemen--Google's marking her 117th birthday...
Lola, I saw this earlier today on the Google home page. It is quite clever.
Yes, wasn't it? Too bad I couldn't save it. Whoever has that job at Google--coming up with celebratory logo ideas-is one lucky dog.
Saw King Solomon's mines (1950) over the weekend, which turned out to contain treasures, including this beautiful Rwandan dance, with a fantastic "soloist":
Peacock Man (for want of a better title)
The people are Tutsis.
Finally found the fabulous song and dance that taught me how to use a comma when I was a kid...
That is great. Reminds me of the sing-alongs in the movies--the few I caught in revivals--with the jumping dot-note.
Brothers Enrique and Guillermo De Fazio (Los hermanos Macana in professional life):
Asi se baila una milonga
With mixed pairs I almost never pay attention to the man, so it's very interesting to see the typical male steps highlighted--in mirror image.
Yeah! I saw that! What AY-mazing footwork! Funny how nobody's watching them, without the soundtrack.
Carmen Amaya (1913-1963)
Odd, I can't remember ever before seeing a woman dance flamenco in trousers.
A salute to comrade* Antonio Gades, who danced for a better world!
dancing a farruca
flamenco with los Zapateados and Cristina Hoyos
He also starred in Carlos Saura's films Bodas de sangre (Lorca's Blood wedding), Carmen, El amor brujo (music by Manuel de Falla) and Flamenco. Tons of videos from those, I simply couldn't choose.
Okay. This one:
Danza del Fuego Fatuo (vocals by Rocio Jurado)
*member of the central committee of the Spanish Communist Party, member of the Cuban Communist Party, AND a Catalan autonomist
