The more underground proposals have a place in Flamenco Festival New York
Flamenco Festival is a window open to the entire flamenco scene. Also to all those artists who have decided to transcend, question and break the borders to propose authentic conceptual revolutions.
Based on talent and discipline, these creators are building new languages in flamenco. Some of the representatives of more underground flamenco are part of the program of our 20th anniversary in New York.
From the Spanish Levante the charismatic Niño de Elche returns to New York to present his ‘Colombian’. Visual resources, performance, poetry materialize in a striking scenic proposal and a new rhythmic for its original and romantic imaginary in which yesterday and the future of flamenco are recognized in the information flows between territories, cultures and artistic logics.
Los Voluble has been intimate related to El Niño de Elche in their works. Benito and Pedro Jiménez defend that ‘Flamenco is not a crime,’ a proposal in which flamenco and electronics intersect with the critical culture and the remix of political videos.
For the first time in New York and appealing to the cabaret universe, the popular Maui de Utrera will offer its ‘Vermouth and Potaje Nights’, a theater, music, pinch and word miscellaneous using a stew that is cooked live as the protagonist.
