8:00 PM20:00

THE VOICE OF FLAMENCO at Parabola Arts

THE VOICE OF FLAMENCO features El Cañejo de Barbate, a fisherman and one of the hottest contemporary Flamenco singers around.

The current Flamenco scene does not get more authentic than this!

El Cañejo de Barbate, true to his roots, performs in many local bars and Peñas around Cadiz during summer, working earlier in the day at sea. His popularity has soared recently and during the winter now sings around the globe, having learnt his craft at his grandmother's knee, coming from a family where Flamenco is a way of life. El Cañejo has already performed with the Spanish National Dance company and the Spanish National Orchestra and recorded 2 CDs.

His voice has an extraordinary quality, evoking more joy than sorrow whilst conjuring up images of his homeland and the sea. He is joined by the distinctive voice of Angeles Rivera, a fresh, contemporary female artist from Cadiz, along with the colourful passionate dance of Adrian Brenes and Nazarer Oliva whilst the cool, unflustered Jaime de la Isla from San Fernando, consistently astounds on Flamenco guitar.

Tapas and vino will be available before the performance and during the interval.

The Flamenco Festival forms part of the 'Mes Hispanico-Latino' between Cheltenham and Hereford during the month of November, celebrating many international artists, their music and dance.
