From Folklore to Flamenco, the music of Málaga
Speaker: Antonio Guerra and Company and narrator Helen Sijsling
Venue: Cultural Centre, calle Granada, Nerja
Date: 25th January at 18:00 (Spanish time)

Flamenco was born in Cádiz, however Málaga and its surrounding villages on the coast and in the mountains were a hotspot of Flamenco. Here unique Flamenco music developed, like the Malagueña, the Abandolao, influenced by the bandeloros, the smugglers, or the Verdiales that only exist in the mountains of Málaga. Famous singers emerged from Vélez Málaga, like Juan Breva.

The echoes of the past will fill the air, Arabs, gypsies, smugglers. We will hear instruments unique for Málaga like the lute or the banderillo or castanets. Come and join us for a wonderful evening of authentic local Flamenco! Sung, danced and played by the wonderful Dance company of Antonio Guerra who treated us to a stunning performance last season.

This lecture will be in the Cultural Centre only. It will not be available on Zoom. It will be recorded and the video will be available from our YouTube channel at some time in the future. We will let you know when it becomes available.
