“The placed claps, the way the bailaora’s dress moves like fire, her daring but confident gaze, the toacor’s fingers stroking the spine of his instrument, her black braid that lashes the air like a whip, her silver earrings that could catch your eye from a mile away, the red flowers braided into her hair like they bloomed off the scalp of her head, the red lipstick holding onto her mouth as if it might fly off if she moves too fast, the echo of her palms hitting each other on the beat of guitar chords, her voice projecting across the room like a bullet aimed at the world, his energy reminding me of a trapped lion, the tips of his fingers dancing on the copper strings, the movement of his and her hands becoming so automatic and repetitive yet so unpredictable.”
