Tribute to Juan Villar at the III Biennial of Cádiz, Jerez and Los Puertos

Juan Villar en La III Bienal de Cádiz

It could not be held this summer, as planned, but it was worth it. The III Flamenco Biennial of Cádiz, Jerez and Los Puertos (from October 1 to November 30) celebrate this 31 a tribute to the cantaor Juan Villar with great figures of the moment. The show promises to be one of the memorable ones.

Since he began in his youth in the painting Los chavalillos gaditanos, Juan Villar has added more than 50 years of career, stepping on stages around the world and obtaining different recognitions. The last one will be received next November, the Manolo Sanlúcar International Flamenco Prize.

Hence, the Biennial wanted to pay tribute to the artist from Cadiz, being the protagonist of a great gala that will take place on October 31 at the Palacio de Congresos de Cádiz. Villar and his family will be with Antonio Canales, Alonso Núñez Rancapino Chico, Caracolillo de Cádiz, Samuel Serrano, May Fernández, Laura Vital, Manuel Jero and Paco León.

The capital of Cadiz will also host a singing recital by Anabel Rivera and another with the saga of Juan Villar, both at the La Merced Cultural Center.

As Mario González, director of the contest, has pointed out, “flamenco is finally taking the importance it really has. Before it seemed that we were playing in a second league and now we realize that this is our culture.”

The Biennial has the support and collaboration of the Diputación de Cádiz, Junta de Andalucía, SGAE Foundation, the Flamencology Chairs of Cádiz and Jerez, the Provincial Federation of Peñas Flamencas de Cádiz and the Local Federation of Peñas Flamencas de Jerez, as well as other companies and the municipalities in which the different activities of the program are developed.
