The BBC Podcast “The Conversation” invites two women from different parts of the world, united by a common passion, experience or expertise to tell Kim Chakanetsa their stories. In early September Rosa Cisneros was a guest on the podcast and helped produce “The Women of Flamenco”. Cisneros sat down with Canadian female guitarist Caroline Plante and both explored and discussed the complex Spanish artform and explored the role of women in Flamenco. The two talk about their experiences of growing up with Flamenco and also how flamenco is a form of activism.
