Flamenco is as universal, powerful and versatile as the blues, as epic as opera, and as delicate and pin-sharp as ballet. Sex and music and history in one hit.
For over twenty years, Flamenco Express has existed to do justice to this amazing music by choosing the best artists and allowing them total freedom of expression. The result is a new emotional and artistic experience every night, delivered by an astonishing range of talent.
Joining La Joaquina and Chris Clavo tonight are two of flamenco's most elemental artists, the chemical reaction between Titi Flores and Antonio El Pola is always explosive.
