Flamenco Abierto Presents… José Valencia
It’s been a pretty special few months for fans of flamenco in the Axarquia. Back in the summer the likes of Diego Carrasco & Family and Jorge Pardo performed under the stars, then last month we’ve had fabulous dancers Ana Pastrana and Raquel Herredia – aka ‘La Repompilla’ – cracking the boards.
And now this Friday night, the roll call of great performers continues with José Valencia coming to Velez-Malaga.
What is it? An intimate concert of cante (song) and toque (guitar) from José Valencia and Juan Requena.
Where is it? Peña Flamenca Niño de Vélez (Calle Tejeda, 10, Velez-Malaga).
When is it? Friday 3rd November at 22.00hrs; doors open at 21.00hrs.
Why should you go? One of the biggest names to perform under the Flamenco Abierto banner, José Valencia is a Barcelona-born singer whose remarkable voice has been acknowledged by some of the most prestigious prizes and honours going from the world of flamenco – including being nominated the 2012 Seville Bienal ‘Giraldillo del Cante’. Accompanied by the superb guitar work of Juan Requena, one of the more technically gifted flamenco guitarists around, it’s all set to be another night of flamenco of the highest class in Velez.
How much is it? €15.
