Having The Best Time At Melbourne World Music Concerts

Having The Best Time At Melbourne World Music Concerts

The best Melbourne world music concerts are something you can enjoy more when you know how to plan a trip to them. There are many great methods to getting a schedule made and having the most fun possible. You’ll want to do some research on this before starting, so that way you develop a plan that has you having the most possible fun.

The music concert is something that you have to plan to go to. You’re not going to be able to just go to Melbourne, find a concert, and go any time of the year. You have to get to know what artists will be there and when, which is a smart idea because then you won’t be stuck in the city without too many options. Select only bands and venues that you’re comfortable going to, but if you haven’t been to them before just look for reviews on older concerts to get an idea of what they may be like now.

Having a good handle on concert safety is a must if you want to have a good time. Even if it’s just a chill band with a lot of slower songs, people will still be in the crowd that you have to be wary of. When people, for instance, party a lot and are drinking, the crowd can get rough. Always have an escape plan so that if there’s a bad situation you can just escape into the crowd or find a seat to avoid anything bad happening.

Remember that a concert isn’t going to sound good in all venues, or the band’s sound may not be super good. If this happens, you may be out of luck, which is why you’re best off listening to some of the band’s live music online or through albums. Sometimes bands sound far better in person than if you were to listen to them through an album of theirs. However, sometimes bands can be off and just having a bad day. If you feel like the whole concert was terrible, you can try speaking with the venue to see if you can get a refund.

When you’re out at a concert, especially if you’re drinking alcohol, make sure you have water as well. Sometimes when you’re dancing and having a good time, you forget just how dehydrated you are until it’s too late. Not to mention, when you’re intoxicated you tend to not want to do much but drink more. It’s better to have a serving of water after each drink, whether you want to or not. That will help you stay awake, and you can probably drink a lot more slowly which is going to actually save you some money.

Enjoying yourself a Melbourne world music concert is possible when you utilize this advice. Because there are many out there around different times of year, just tailor the general tips here to the concert series you’re wanting to go to.

The Flamenco Sound

Generally since I have lived in Spain for over 32 years  I am considered  a flamenco guitarist. I must say that I love the flamenco melodic and harmonic colors but this is only one style of music that I thrive on.

I have learnt flamenco coming from a western background so I have had to relate to previous knowledge for it´s understanding.

Let´s make it real simple , you get the blues sound by playing the blue notes. Flamenco is very similar You get the flamenco sound by playing the flamenco notes. In Blues if you do not play the blues sound often then it sounds strange. In Flamenco if you do not play the flamenco sound, the notes that sound flamenco then it also sounds strange.

Spanish Guitar Duo, Unique Latin Flamenco Music

The Spanish guitar allows the performer to reflect mother nature´s  beauty through music.The following blog post shows some insights on how to bring together two harmonic instruments of same or different timbres and have both performers be heard with clarity without the need of much amplification.

I am also a strong believer that all performers should have knowledge of improvisation which slowly will allow society to  move away from the present western  concept of classical music  and possibly restore the true value of composition and music.

Melbourne Spanish Guitar. La Guajira Flamenca

Thomas Lorenzo expands on flamenco styles. Music appreciation is an added value to all his event planning here in Melbourne.

His love for music defines his need in sharing his knowledge with fellow friends and musicians.

Flamenco guitar books incorporate complicated descriptions of the patterns we use in it´s styles. I believe the explanation can be simplified as music is only a simple reflection of human emotions.

Flamenco as all styles of music has a specific pulse, a heartbeat that we communicate on and with. La guajira is really a ¾ rhythm and a waltz style of music.

La Farruca. Flamenco by Flamenco Latin  Guitarist Thomas Lorenzo

Farruca is a form and style of flamenco music. It may be performed with lyrics ( vocals) and as most flamenco styles in can also be danced to. It is played in 4/4, interpreted at a relative slow tempo and accompanied by melody and harmony defining a minor key.

In the following examples you will see how slow tempos are appropriate for “accelerandos” as a possible method of achieving intensity in the dance and impact on the audience.

It is very common in flamenco to relate styles to certain keys. All styles in theory can be played in all keys . Those keys that allow open strings on the guitar broaden the possibility of expression, rhythm and accompaniment of the spanish guitarist.  Please follow the link above to read more on the subject
