Fantastic drone footage of Ronda with music by Paco Seco

Earlier this year I went on a family holiday to Andalusia. Unknowing to It’s beauty, we stumbled across Ronda when browsing a coach timetable.

From the moment I saw the photos of Ronda on my Google search, I knew I had to see it for myself – and it was spectacular!

After a few months of sitting on a Hard Drive, the footage has now been really bought alive after it’s parring with music from an incredibly talented musician local to Ronda, Paco Seco.

Paco was born in Andalusia and co-founded the ‘Ronda Guitar House’ with the mission of providing truly authentic, culturally rich and quality music in the city of Ronda.

The Guitar House in Ronda

Ronda Guitar House 2015 to 2020

Ronda Guitar House was a venue located in the centre of Ronda, Malaga, Spain. Ronda Guitar House opened its doors in 2015 with the following mission: “Providing a truly authentic environment dedicated to quality music in the city of Ronda.”

Locals and visitors of the city could enjoy daily Spanish guitar concerts and a selection of fine local Ronda wine. There was also a collection of hand-made guitars and world instruments on permanent display. Many of the instruments were for sale in the specialist shop, together with their accompanying accessories.

Where to see Flamenco in Ronda

Flamenco music has it’s origins in ancient Andalucian history, possibly well before the Moorish settlements, and is believed by many experts to be a complex amalgam of Iberian, Arabic, Shepherdic, and Gitano musical styles that really matured after the reconquest of 1492, and then over the next few centuries. Over the last millenium Flamenco has spread to the rest of Spain and the former Spanish colonies in Central and South America.

Celia Morales, a truly talented Flamenco guitarist in Ronda

No trip to Ronda would be complete without hearing at least a small amount of Flamenco guitar. But to visit one of Celias concerts is an absolute treat. She is one of the most talented flamenco guitarist I have ever heard and she can be seen playing at Calle Calvo Asensio, 8. (RONDA) at 6pm and 7.30pm most nights. The concerts last for 1 hour.

At 15 euros per person, the entrance fee is amazingly cheap to see this wonderful composer and musician. You can go to her website and hear some of her work as the music starts to load as you open the home page. Check out the below video to see here in action. Truly talented.
