Ciutat Flamenco 2013

May 23rd to 26th at the Mercat de les Flors.
May 8, 2013


The Taller de Musics, in collaboration with the Mercat de les Flors presents a new edition of Barcelona’s most popular festival, an event committed to the creation, experimentation and exhibition of a wide range of projects in the realm of contemporary flamenco.

This year’s festival is dedicated to Carmen Amaya for the centennial of her birth, and intends to honor and update the legacy of one of the most universal artists to come out of Catalonia.  For this reason, many of the artists, shows and productions were chosen based on their references to the dancer and/or her impact on flamenco, and the world of dance in general.



In addition to the main program, the following courses will be offered:

•    “Flamenco applied to melodic instruments”, by flautist and composer Juan Parrilla.
•    “Respecting tradition and imagination to make transformations”, by singer Arcángel.
•    “Photography and music”, initiation course in stage photography with Lorenzo Di Nozzi.

The festival closes out with a sardine roast in the street in memory of the famous anecdote of Carmen Amaya who cooked sardines at New York’s Waldorf Astoria Hotel during her stay.
