Song that Inspired My Poem “The Enchantment of the Flamenco”

This song comes from the movie soundtrack of Blancanieves, a Spanish silent film that recreates the story of Snow White with its own twist. If you ever get the chance to see it, I highly recommend it. It stays mostly true to the story, however, the movie is no fairytale. Snow White’s life is not sugarcoated and the realities of life are not avoided, which I find to be very refreshing. In the film, Snow White is known as Carmen and she grows up in Spain during the 1920s. She is the daughter of Antonio Villalta, an infamous bullfighter, and Carmen de Triana, a flamenco dancer. As a little girl, she is taught flamenco and the song “No Te Puedo Encontrar”(the title means “I can’t find you”) is what she dances to. I hope you enjoy it and tell me what you think!
