Madrid knows about flamenco traditions. Not in vain, Since the 19th century, the capital has been the host and epicenter of cante interpreters, dance and guitar. From there flamenco spread and spread, it was protected in difficult times and the premiere of works that still remain in the historical memory of this art was encouraged. Practically all the important names in flamenco have spent not only performing seasons in Madrid, they also lived in it for long periods. Scenarios like those of Villa Rosa, Los Canasteros, Torres Bermejas, the Corral de la Morería, the Circo Price Theater ... were essential for the growth of artists who found a suitable space in the city, cozy and warm.
All this not only remains for the memory of flamenco. It is also in the public, that continues to make this tradition good and that accumulates an unquestionable jonda wisdom. We offer this audience that fills every performance of Andalucía Flamenca, for the season 2020-2021, a concert schedule that starts on 13 November - in the run-up to the celebration of the tenth anniversary of the declaration of flamenco as an intangible cultural heritage of humanity by Unesco - and concludes the 7 of May.
