Event Description

This intimate and unique Flamenco show presents top artists coming from Spain for this occasion. Dancer Natalia García Huidobro and rising star cantaora Teresa Hernández give homage to women in Flamenco, taking inspiration from Lola Flores, Dolores Vargas “La Terremoto”, and Pastora Pavón “La Niña de los Peines”. We will travel to the universe of cabarets, café cantantes and a whole era of exhibitionism, and observe it from a contemporary eye. Guitarist Adrián Tabú will be in the guitar in this special event.

The artists:

Natalia García Huidobro- Dance
Chilean choreographer and dancer based in Spain with training in Mexico (with Mercedes Amaya”La Winy”, niece of Carmen Amaya), Spain and the United Kingdom. Through her creations, Natalia has developed a very personal line of contemporary flamenco facing the tradition and opening the structures of this language in collaboration with artists from different disciplines. This has allowed her to feed La Típica (company that she leads since 2000) with new forms of flamenco. Some of her main works as artistic director are El Arrebato, Our prayer, La Extranjera, Memorias del viento, Acuérdate de mí…Lola, Silencio and A ras de Tierra. As a performer Natalia has collaborated with various visual artists and outstanding musicians. She has worked for Juan José Gurrola, Rodrigo Bazaes, José Luis Vidal, Sonia Sabri, Lemi Ponifasio and has participated in works from Glimt Theater (Denmark) and projects of audience’s integration through dance at Sadler’s Wells (UK). As a flamenco dancer she has performed in all the tablaos in Madrid, collaborated with several companies and has performed in stages in Chile, Argentina, Spain, the United Kingdom, Russia, Japan, Greece, France, Italy, Mexico, Denmark, Morocco, Canada and Sweden.

 

Teresa Hernández – Cante & Guitar
Teresa Hernández was born in La Línea de la Concepción, Spain. She is a flamenco singer and guitarist who features in the main tablaos and peñas of the country. She has toured internationally and has been a key member of flamenco shows such as “MaraMante” of Lucía Ruibal and Marina Perea, and “Trajes de Domingo” from Compañía Malucos Danza. She is part of the artistic crew in the 2021-2022 tour of the renowned guitarist Mercedes Luján. She was the winner of the prestigious Concurso Nacional de Cante Zamara Music 2021. In May 2022 she released her first single, a guajira named “El día que me quisiste”, recorded live from the tablao Torres Bermejas. She lives in Madrid and is an active artist in the best tablaos of the city, such as “Las Carboneras”, “Corral de la Morería”, “Las Tablas”, “Torres Bermejas”, Centro Cultural Flamenco Madrid, amongst others.

 

Adrián Solá – Guitar
London based Flamenco guitarist Adrian Solá offers a curated repertoire of essential masterpieces from the Flamenco guitar realm. He is also an accomplished and sought-after accompanist for the traditions of dance and singing. Born in Barcelona, he showed an early musical interest and borrowed his father’s guitar around 12 years old. What began as a hobby became a necessity to understand how music works in a more rational way. This led to his decision of enrolling at The Modern Music School of Barcelona to study musical language, harmony, jazz flute and flamenco guitar. He furthered his development attending master classes with guitar virtuosos Zsolt Hernandi and Rafael Canizares. He is an active performer in the London Flamenco scene, playing with established London based flamenco dancers and singers and attending regular UK tours.
