Event Description

Straight from Spain in an exclusive appearance, multi award winning guitarist and composer José Almarcha curates a show where the fundamental elements of Flamenco (dance, guitar and percussion) interact and create individual and intertwined artistic conversations. Lucía Ruibal, one of Spain’s most wanted dancers, will be travelling for this occasion, joining forces with London based percussionist Demi García Sabat.  This is a unique opportunity to appreciate incredible artistry in an intimate setting.

This event is part of our Flamenco Salon Series, that brings hand picked Flamenco or Flamenco inspired pieces, conversations, installations, to an intimate audience keen to appreciate the best of Flamenco in London.

The artists:

José Almarcha – Guitar
José Almarcha Márquez was born in Tomelloso, (Ciudad Real, Spain), where he began learning the guitar from a very young age. In 2009 he graduated from Conservatorio Superior de Música “Rafael Orozco” in Córdoba, where he studied flamenco guitar with renowned teachers such as Paco Serrano, Manolo Franco and Niño de Pura, among others. He has travelled the world with the best flamenco companies, and has continued to be an active figure in Madrid’s most prestigious tablaos, such as  Casa Patas, Corral De La Morería, Café De Chinitas, and Las tablas.

Lucía Ruibal – Dance
Lucía Ruibal was born in 1990 in El Puerto de Santa María (Cádiz) as part of a family dedicated to music and art. Her father, songwriter Javier Ruibal, had a particular influence in her artistic awakening. Her dance shows the many styles that she experienced in her upbringing. Her beginnings were with classical dance, but at a very early stage she encountered Flamenco, and had the opportunity to train with figures such as “La Lupi” and “Mercedes Ruíz”. Later on she moved to Madrid, where she continued to expand her education with the best maestros, and started dancing in professional dance companies and tablaos. She was the recipient of the “IV Concurso Tablao Villa-Rosa”.
