    Wonderful music, singing & dancing. Juan Ramirez is passionate about the art of Flamenco, as are the beautiful dancers. Makes one want to get up & try to move your feet that fast. Until I listened to this video, I didn't realize that the Flamenco guitar music could be so relaxing & enjoyable. Thank you Juan Ramirez for your splendid playing.

    Senior Ramirez has obviously immersed himself in the passion and spirit of this most unique music art form. His demonstrated commitment and dedication is not just for entertainment, I get sense that Senior Ramirez has embarked himself upon a pilgrimage to enlighten and revive both his people, and the world, relevant to the Passion; spirituality; reverence and sacredness of "Flamenco"

    Music (flamenco) as a responsibility: You have to be willing go expose yourself, to share what you have lived, your moments of suffering and your moments of happiness. I've also liked the idea of working to learn, flamenco as a long life experience. Even though I'm Spanish, I live in the north of Spain and we are barely related to this kind of "gipsy" music. Great video, thank you for sharing.

    His single minded dedication to learn and becoming better in playing the flamenco. I liked the statement: You can never learn it completely.
