On December 1st the program of the 17th Jornadas Flamencas de La Fortuna – Silla de Oro, an event that takes places every year before Christmas, was presented at Madrid’s Fundación Conservatorio Flamenco Casa Patas.
This year’s program is centered on women, “not as a tribute, but in recognition of certain interesting and ground-breaking proposals” said Angel Lacalle, the festival programmer.
The photo exhibit is by Paco Sánchez. His black and white portraits bring us the image of today’s female singers and their tremendous contribution to flamenco.
The finals of the contest will be held at the Polideportivo of La Fortuna, along with the performance of dancer Leilah Broukhim.
The series ends Sunday with the cante of Chiclana singer Antonio Reyes Montoya with the guitar of Diego Amaya, and the dancing of María Moreno with “El Choro” as guest artist.
The organization’s goal is to “maintain the permanent renovation of ideas and concepts that have the capacity to surprise based on simplicity”.
It was commented that “this activity would not be possible without the reciprocal collaboration between the municipalities of Leganés and La Fortuna and the tireless efforts of “Jondo”, a discreet group of flamenco followers who are immune to becoming discouraged”.
