Performance date and time
Friday, 15th February 2019
7:30 PM

This acclaimed Spanish flamenco ensemble of voice, guitar and dancer brim with passion, power and technical command, delivering both slow, grand emotion and driving gunfire rhythms, with Lourdes Fernandez's 'zapateado' heels hammering the floor. Thrilling footwork, extraordinary singing, outstanding guitar: a fantástico show. _________________________________________________________________

Alma Gitana ('Gipsy Soul') brings you the passion of flamenco music and dance with an unforgettable show.

Four Spanish artists (Barcelona, Granada and Madrid) whose connection and power on stage leave audiences in awe – the fantastic guitar of Andres Garcia, the marvelous voice of Javier Moreno and the rhythms of cajon percussionist Demi Garcia all feed the inspirational dancing of Lourdes Fernandez, whose captivating movements and highly technical 'zapateado' (percussive) footwork leaves you holding your breath.

Having quickly earned a strong reputation in the flamenco and world music scenes, with sell-out shows and rave reviews and testimonials about the group's passionate and intense performances, this fantastic weave of traditional flamenco and Mexican and Cuban musics brings true 'duende' - a heightened state of emotion, expression and authenticity – to the stage. A rousing crowd pleaser. A heartfelt glimpse into flamenco's soul.

Spain. International arts supported by Live & Local Friends.
