La movida madrileña

I am in shock since the House of Grimaldi announced La Movida Madrileña as the theme for the next Bal de la Rose.


For those who don't know what I'm talking about, La Movida Madrileña was a social movement that took place right after the death of Franco until the mid 80's. It was a consequence of the freedom and prosperity Spain was living at the moment. Pedro Almodóvar, Mecano, Joaquín Sabina or Alaska, to name a few, formed part of this movement.

And now, Carolina de Monaco recovers this piece of Spanish history for the most important ball of the year.

Song: Bailando - Alaska

cotton candy: for me it's a good thing. They're telling us they appreciate our culture.
