Some flamenco dancers have interpreted the Red Hot Chili Peppers and it's highly expressive

A troupe of flamenco dancers in Spain have added the Red Hot Chili Peppers' Aquatic Mouth Dance – a song featured on the band's recent Unlimited Love album – to their repertoire.  

The dancers are based at El Patio Sevillano in Seville – where daily flamenco shows have been taking place since 1952 – and have shared their interpretation of the song to celebrate the start of the Chili Peppers' world tour, which kicks off at the La Cartuja stadium in the city on Saturday.  

"We couldn't resist making a video of the song," say the dancers. "Welcome to Seville, it's an honour to be able to cover your song and do what we are best at."

"We have been offering the best flamenco show in Seville for over half a century together with the best artists nationwide," claims the El Patio website. "Are you going to miss it?"

Well, we might. According to testimonials on review site TripAdvisor (opens in new tab), the dancers are "passionate and energetic in their movement" and "enjoyable and authentic", but the seating is "worse than a middle seat on a budget airline" and "the recorded music was unexpected and disappointing."

"Worst food we've had in Spain," adds one disgruntled customer, "but I highly recommend the show."

Unlimited Love is out now.
