Description

Flamencos del Sur

For our special Christmas show this year we welcome a group of top-class performers travelling direct from Granada to appear at the Peña Flamenca de Londres.

Young dancer Sara Sánchez set the stage alight with her performance earlier in 2017. This is your chance to see her again. Born in Motril, she started dancing at the age of five at the Escuela de Baile de Mariquilla and dances in the 'gypsy' style. Her principal teachers now are Raquel Heredia 'La Repompilla' and Juan Manuel Fernández Montoya 'Farruquito'. She has also studied with luminaries of flamenco dance such as Manuel Liñán, Manuela Carrasco, Pastora Galván, Juan Andrés Maya, Carmela Greco, and Antonio Canales.

Joining Sara is dancer Joaquin Ruíz, an experienced dancer, teacher and choreographer. Beginning his career with companies such as Ballet of the Teatro de la Zarzuela, Compañía Luisillo, Rafael de Córdoba, Ballet Antología, Ballet Siluetas de José Antonio, Ballet Maria Rosa, Rafael Aguilar, and Compañía Mario Maya, he has also appeared with Carmen Linares, Paco Peña, Serranito, Carmen Cortés, Raúl, Blanca del Rey, María Benítez, la Tati, Luisillo, Carlos Núñez and Pablo Ribén.

Also performing at this special evening are two artists whose families have been living and breathing flamenco for generations: singer Raúl 'El Mikey', whose career started in Los Colorados, a group of singers consisting of family members, and who has worked with big stars such as Antonio Canales, Joaquin Cortés, and Sara Baras among others; and guitarist Niño Carmelo, who started studying his instrument at the age of 3, inspired by his father and many other relatives, and who has worked with Montse Cortés, Juan de Juan, and Marina Heredia among others.

This top-flight group is put together by Jingle, the well-know British born flamenco guitarist based in Spain.
