Writer Elizabeth Kinder travels through Andalusia from Malaga to Cadiz to find the soul of flamenco - the beguiling mix of guitar, song and dance strongly associated with southern Spain's gypsies. She witnesses enchanting performances by humble blacksmiths and goat herders, and shows a glimpse of a timeless way of life that has been preserved for centuries.
