London’s Flamenco Festival returns for its 11th year
The annual Flamenco Festival is coming back to London’s Sadler’s Wells from 1-15 March and is set to be another exciting season of flamenco dance and music.
This year fans can choose from six different shows, kicking off with flamenco icon Sara Baras. Baras’ fabulous career spans 20 years and she is still as captivating as ever. Her performances promise to be emotive and passionate, enhanced by the accompaniment of guest artist José Serrano for her performance of “La Pepa”.
Other flamenco superstars to be making an appearance this year include Miguel Poveda, whose voice is well-known in his native Spain, Farruquito, who is dedicated to the history and traditions of flamenco dancing, and Belén Maya, known for bringing a sensual edge to her dancing. Top new generation dancer, Ángel Múñoz, will also be joining the festival for the first time.
This year’s Gala Flamenca will fuse together talents from a variety of different disciplines for a spectacular performace. Expect the likes of Olga Pericet, Mercedes Ruíz, Laura Rozalén and Marco Flores to grace the stage.
The season ends with a must-see performance from Goya award-winning Catalan folk singer, Silvia Pérez Cruz, who boasts a unique sound inspired by folk, Portuguese Fado, classical music and jazz.
Tickets for the performances range from £12 to £45 and can be purchased at www.sadlerswells.com/whats-on/2014/Flamenco-Festival-London or by calling 0844 412 4300.
