Andres Barrios, born in Utrera (Seville), is one of the leading exponents of the new generation of flamenco pianists. Inspired by Chick Corea, Chucho Valdes, Michel Camilo and Gonzalo Rubalcaba, he incorporates jazz, Latin and Afro-Cuban music in his performances and compositions. By the time he was in his early twenties, he had already performed at international festivals and major venues in Spain, and received the prestigious Filon Award for Best Instrumentalist at the 2018 Festival del Cante de Las Minas. In his first recording, Al Sur del Jazz, which features 11 of his compositions, he collaborated with Arcángel, Rocío Márquez and Sandra Carrasco. His acclaimed work, Universo Lorca, was presented in in 2020 at the Bienal de Flamenco de Sevilla, showcasing traditional songs that Federico García Lorca had rescued. For this program, he will be joined by special guest dancer Ana Almagro, from Malaga, who has been a member of the Ballet Flamenco de Andalucía and the Ballet Nacional de España.
