The best of ALL FLAMENCO in 2022
María Terremoto, Esperanza Fernández, Jesús Méndez and La Cañeta de Málaga, among others.
There are different types of flamenco lovers. There are those who do not spend a day without listening to some tangos, fandangos, bulerías or soleás. There are also those who reserve rumbas for a weekend of joy. Those who, on a Sunday evening, watch a recital, a movie or a documentary that brings them a little closer to this art. Those who combine their passion for flamenco with other music, and enjoy the fusions. There are street flamencos, flamencos on television, flamencos on occasion and by profession. But they all have a little piece of heart for flamenco culture.
That's why, before the end of the year, we wanted to compile some of the best flamenco pieces of 2022. Because we are sure that, whatever your relationship with flamenco, they will touch you deeply.
Another year with María Terremoto
Terremoto because she shakes you. Terremoto because she makes you tremble. This year, without a doubt, she has given us one of the best shows. Don't miss it.
It is forbidden not to listen to Esperanza Fernández
In ALL FLAMENCO we got our hands on this wonderful documentary about the production of Esperanza Fernández's new album, "Se prohíbe el cante". Based on the posters that hung in the peñas during Franco's dictatorship, the only thing we forbid you not to watch it right now.
Alba Bazán leaves us speechless
The 7th edition of La Isla Ciudad Flamenca is crowned by the unmistakable voice of Alba Bazán. The singer from Sanlúcar shows off the best cante por trilla, toná and cantiñas, accompanied by the guitar of the master Manuel Lin and the clapping of Naim Real and Miguel Katumba. If you haven't seen it yet, the time has come.
A magical moment with Jesús Méndez
This year, in the historic festival of La Parpuja de Chiclana, the Jerez-born Jesús Méndez offered one of those unrepeatable recitals, one of those that you doubt you have dreamed of. Luckily, we were there and we have it available in this link.
Honors to Cañeta de Málaga
Cañeta de Málaga received a beautiful tribute for more than seven decades dedicated to flamenco. Artists such as Israel Fernández, Remache and Pepe Habichuela paid their respective honors to one of the most influential flamenco artists in Spain. Ready to feel the goose bumps? Then click on this link.
Paula Sierra at the Jerez Off Festival
Paula Sierra is getting stronger and stronger, purer and purer and more and more flamenca if possible. On this occasion, we were able to enjoy one of her best shows, accompanied by the shawl and the bata de cola.
The most intimate of the year
Manuel Barajas Company explores something as pure and delicate as intimacy, that special place where we feel safe, where we can be ourselves and give free rein to our bodies. That special place where we feel safe, where we can be ourselves and give free rein to our bodies. And what happens when we feel that intimacy in something as open to the public as a stage? Something as special as what we experienced HERE.
The unseen: "Halfway through life"
"A mitad del camino de la vida" ("Halfway through life") is the title of this work inspired by Dante Alighieri's Divine Comedy. The composer Mauricio Sotelo starts from this premise to create a concert that mixes contemporary music with the flamenco voice of Arcángel. Available here.
We end 2022 with the purity of Rafael Campallo at the Jerez Festival
The dancer Rafael Campallo created a unique atmosphere, faithful to the flamenco movement, without being influenced by any dance. Let yourself be intoxicated by this dance to purity.
