Some insights on the show CARMEN CARMEN CARMEN

Tablao Flamenco Cordobes is a historic venue, an institution, on the Ramblas of Barcelona, through which, for more than years, all the stars of flamenco have continued to pass. From the very day of its foundation, it has focused on promoting, preserving and preserving the most authentic and high-quality flamenco. In addition, he has taken some of the most important productions from his Las Ramblas stage to theaters and stages around the world (Paris, Madrid, Seville, Poland, London ...), also becoming an active promoter.

In 2014 this show disembarked at the Palau de la Música Catalana, where it was presented under the brand of "Gran Festival Flamenco de Barcelona", some of his most important productions always featuring the best artists of the moment: Farruquito, Jesús Carmona, Karime Amaya, José Maya, La Tana or Belén López, among others.

With the show “Carmen, Carmen, Carmen”, Tablao Flamenco Cordobes de Barcelona pays tribute to one of the most groundbreaking personalities of flamenco dance, Carmen Amaya.

This gypsy, born in the emigrant and gypsy neighborhood of Somorrostro in Barcelona, daughter of a bailaora and a guitarist ('la Faraona' and 'el Chino'), directed her professional journey from the taverns of the seaside bars of Barcelona to President Roosevelt's White House.

Iconoclast, self-taught, cantaora, a breaker of all molds ... her dance is, as we say, a metaphor for rebellion, with an electrifying rhythm and ethics with which she was ahead of her time in every way, including in her wardrobe. , being one of the first dancers to wear pants.

Carmen Amaya is an elusive model from an academic point of view and does not fit into a single model, that is why our show offers three versions of her varied aesthetic profile and even a version of her incursions as a cantaora.

One more year at the Gran Festival Flamenco de Barcelona we have the spectacular Karime Amaya. Custody of the racial essences of her great-aunt the great Catalan Carmen Amaya, Karime continues to dazzle her own and strangers with her performances on the most important stages of the world such as the Arts Presenters 46th Annual Members Conference, in New York ; the tablao El Flamenco, in Tokyo; the Quito Flamenco Festival; the Mont-de-Marsan Flamenco Art Festival in France; the Monterrey Flamenco Art Festival and the Tablao Flamenco Cordobes, among others, either with her own show or in the company of some of the greatest figures in the world of flamenco such as Antonio Canales or Farruquito.

Along with her, will perform some of the best flamenco dance artists, in singing, at the guitars and also dancing. Names of the stature of Susana Casas, Sara Barrero, El Tete, Davinia Jaén, Antonio Campos "Bocaillo", Luis, "El Granaíno", Luis de la Fefa, David Cerreduela or Tuto, among others, will accompany them throughout the different shows that will be presented in the cycle (some artist may not be present for reasons beyond the organization's control).

Versions by prestigious and young dancers who drink from that fountain of history: Karime Amaya (Carmen Amaya's niece-great-daughter), Susana Casas and Sara Barrero.
