Flamenco Express presents another cargo of raw, heart-wrenching flamenco - in the form of: 'sizzling soloist' La Joaquina, guitar virtuoso Chris Clavo, and the vocal heritage of flamenco custodian Antonio el Pola.
Plus the power and grace of Alejandro Molinero - and the last minute addition of Ana Latorre - both highly respected award-winning innovative young dancers who have shown the direction of the flamenco journey.
Ana Latorre is a formidable addition to the Latorre lineage. A rare talent nurtured by almost every great flamenco artist alive - not forgetting her father, Javier Latorre - her performances unleash a terrifyingly committed exhibition of soaring flamenco rhythm and power. The primal Dyonisiac possession the poet Lorca refers to when trying analyse the art of the gypsies - fused with an uncompromisingly modern aesthetic. The traditional survival strategy of the Gypsies.
The future of flamenco.
