Carrete de Malaga at Flamenco Abierto

Friday 1st June is going to be one very special night of flamenco indeed.

Week in week out, Flamenco Abierto in Velez-Malaga is routinely brilliant – delivering flamenco that’s authentic, joyful, soulful and, most of all, unerringly high-quality. Only occasionally, though, does it attract a true living legend.

Which is why we could hardly be more excited to welcome José Losada Santiago – better known as ‘Carrete de Malaga’ (Wikipedia page) – performing on Friday 1st June.

A flamenco living legend, Carrete will be performing fresh from a well-deserved homage just a few days ago, when he sold out the Teatro Cervantes in Malaga, in an intimate night at the Peña Flamenca Niño de Vélez.

He will be accompanied by fellow dancer Luisa Chicano, the beautiful voice of MCarmen Ruiz, the guitar of Ruben Portillo and the clapping of Yaya.
