Singers Carmen Cortés with their respective groups.
In the Hall of the CCCB, rumba catalana groups like Gertrudis, Guadalquivir, Ai, Ai, Ai and Los Manolos will perform, and we’ll have the opportunity to enjoy, in a reduced format, music interpreted by guitarists José Antonio Rodríguez.
Throughout the week, Barcelona will be the focus of attention for flamenco’s avant-garde with performances, conferences, book presentations and the showing of flamenco documentaries thanks to the 1st Festival Audiovisual de Flamenco Ciutat Vella called P’ALUCINE, a festival created in order to support and award audiovisual creativity related to the art of flamenco.
At the Sala Llantiol, in collaboration with the Hipersons Club, a unique concert will be presented, as well as the award ceremony of the winners of P’ALUCINE.
Drama, celebration, gaiety, depth…the voices will all be heard through the mystery of “Carama”.
