Teatro Conde Duque turns the spotlight on young flamenco artists in September, in an excellent show featuring talented young flamenco artists under 30 years of age who will express themselves through song, guitar playing and dance. Madrid’s flamenco dancer par excellence, La Tati, will perform on the opening night, acting as honorary godmother to Flamenco Joven’15 and presenting her show, A mi manera.
All performances will be held in Teatro Conde Duque beginning at 8pm, and tickets are very reasonably priced – 12 euros for general admission and 10 euros for discounted admission. The three nights following La Tati’s performance on opening night will feature young flamenco artists who have already achieved great renown, including J. Enrique Morente, Rancapino Chico, Gema Moneo, Juan Habichuela Nieto, Belén López and María Mezcle.
Conde Duque Cultural Centre’s commitment to young artists and creators is an important factor in this flamenco event, which will show us not just what the genre has in store for us but also its current state, as many of the young artists currently enjoy great success. With this initiative Conde Duque also shows its recognition of the advisability and the need to create a forum to promote young flamenco artists, who before now had few opportunities in Madrid.
On Wednesday 23 September, Madrid’s most renowned flamenco dancer, La Tati, will introduce Flamenco Joven’15. Born on Madrid’s Calle Toledo, La Tati comes from a long line of flamenco artists, namely the Amaya family.
The following day, Thursday 24th, will offer more dancing by a young flamenco artist from Jerez who also has a surname that is very well known in flamenco circles: Gema Moneo, niece to El Torta. She will appear alongside Chiclana-born singer Rancapino Chico, son of the great Rancapino, and David de Jacoba from Granada, a young flamenco singer who performed with Paco de Lucía in his last few years. The artists will be accompanied by Salamanca’s Amós Lora on concert guitar.
On Friday 25th, Teatro Conde Duque will showcase the voices of two artists who despite their youth have already risen to great heights in the flamenco world: Huelva’s Jesús Corbacho and Cádiz-born singer María Mezcle. Tarragona-born dancer Belén López and Granada’s concert guitarist David Carmona will complete the act. Carmona is a member of the dynastic Fernández family clan from Íllora.
The final night, Saturday 26 September, will feature equally renowned artists, such as guitarist Juan Habichuela Nieto and flamenco singer José Enrique Morente, son of Enrique and brother to Estrella Morente. These two artists from famous flamenco families will be joined by young Almeria-born flamenco singer Toñi Fernández and flamenco dancer Sergio Aranda from Malaga.
