Bolero

July 7, 2017

Synopsis

Bolero is a genre of spanish music associated with dance. It has an obsessive rhythm from the start to the end. In the Ravel’s “Bolero” this rhythm has also an impressive crescendo. These features fit very well with what happens in the Universe and in our lives. We live on a planet that spins around the Sun and around itself constantly and as human beings within society we repeat the same routine every day. The same obsessive, great rhythm from the beginning to the end of times.
