One of the highlights of the Festival is Flamenco en Blanco y Negro, described as ‘A unique creation born of two visions, with the flavour of two continents… There will be music, dance and song!’
Flamenco en Blanco y Negro is brought to you by Cano, a flamenco guitarist and composer with a unique voice and powerful technique, whose creativity transcends the traditional boundaries of flamenco. Juana Calzadilla who was trained in multiple dance forms in Venezuela and Mexico before specialising in Flamenco singing and dance at Madrid’s renowned Amor de Dios school. And finally Ranffis El Niche, a trumpet player hailing originally from Cuba, now based in Seville, where he has collaborated with a number of great artists.
