BBC News Features Castanet Maker

BBC News does such great segments highlighting people and their trades. This episode is dedicated to Juan Vela, one of the last of the castanet makers. Castanets, as your kids or students may not know, are used in flamenco dancing. Made of small concave pieces of wood, ivory, or plastic, they are joined in pairs by a cord and clicked together by the fingers to accompany the flamenco dancers.

You may enjoy pairing this with my free download, Explore Spain: A Country Coloring Activity.

I really loved watching this! And I think most of you will, too.
