Flamenco Eñe, a dialogue between cultures

Flamenco Eñe, a dialogue between cultures

Flamenco Festival presents Flamenco Eñe, a series of shows created by the SGAE Foundation that aims to open new dialogues between flamenco and different cultures to be hosted by Joe's Pub in New York, on 10, 11 and 18 March 2017.

Joe's Pub will become a tablao, a Flamenco Festival stage where Flamenco Eñe get a glimpse of some of the most adventuous musical mixes in flamenco lead by the musicians Josemi Carmona & Javier Colina (March 10th, 9.30pm), Alfonso Aroca (March 11, 9.30pm) and the Ultra High Flamenco quartet (March, 18th, 9.30pm). For three nights in March, this program aims at spreading Flamenco, and its different ways of expression, throughout the world. 

"Flamenco is the result of many fusions in that journey that brought the gypsies from India to the South of Spain, some through Europe, some through the North of Africa, and I´m not against any musical mix as long as it’s done from the heart." says Josemi Carmona, a former member of Ketama, the leading flamenco pop group and the son of the great guitarist Pepe Habichuela.  

“Flamenco is now more alive than ever,” said Miguel Marín, founder and executive director of the Flamenco Festival. “There is an explosion of creativity these days that permeates the art form, and I’m very proud that this edition of Flamenco Festival will offer a glimpse of the work and creativity of this amazing generation of artists. They are keeping flamenco alive, respecting the tradition but also pushing forward, always changing and evolving".


With the Flamenco Eñe series at Joe's Pub and the shows hosted by the New York City CenterFlamenco Festival New York invites the audience in March, from 9 to 8th, to discover all the creativity that flamenco has to offer today.

Josemi Carmona & Javier Colina – De Cerca

 
 
 

Supported by years of friendship and professional collaboration, De Cerca represents the musical encounter between the flamenco guitar of Josemi Carmona (son of prestigious guitarist Pepe Habichuela and leader of the legendary flamenco-pop band Ketama) and the double-bass playing of Javier Colina (a regular of Bebo and Chucho Valdés or Jerry González). Jazz & flamenco share common roots in this virtuoso project that joins two essential names of Spanish music nowadays.

Alfonso Aroca - Orilla del Mundo

 
 
 
 

Last summer Alfonso Aroca won the award for the best flamenco instrumentalist in Spain. Following the footsteps of David Peña Dorantes and Diego Amador, the pianist from Córdoba translates the flamenco guitar to the keyboard. He surrounds himself with the dance of Abel Harana and a group of young, firts-rate musicians, who help him to raise the flamenco tradition to new heights. Orilla del Mundo (Shore of the World) is his debut album which he will present at the festival.

UHF - Ultra High Flamenco

 
 
 

Four musical friends who had crossed each other's paths for years as ‘sidemen’ of guitar masters like Tomatito, Vicente Amigo, Gerardo Núñez and pianist Chano Domínguez, joined forces in 2007 in a brand new flamenco jazz quartet. Using the flamenco grammar as an inexhaustible source of possibilities in their compositions, the group is united by a shared musical passion to explore the boundaries of the genre with fun and imagination. The band led by bassist Pablo Martín excels at innovative and jazz-tinged interpretations of various traditional flamenco styles.
