Flamenco on fire

With a festival format much closer to the macro festivals of rock music, and a novelty in flamenco, Pamplona is offering in this first edition a complete sampling of the flamenco spectrum, from the flamenco rock of Tomasito or the Evangelistas with Soleá Morente, Kiko Veneno, passing through the pop flamenco of Niña Pastori, the dancing of flamenco’s most outstanding interpreter, Sara Baras, a tribute to Carmen Amaya with Karime Amaya, Belén López, Susana López and el Junco.  The guitar will be represented by Tomatito who will appear with his sextet, and by Pepe Habichuela with Josemi Carmona.

Flamenco singing will be represented at the festival by three of the biggest stars, José Mercé, Estrella Morente and Arcángel, for a sure thing that is bound to please fans who come to the festival, those who are starting out in flamenco…these performers will surely get new audiences hooked on flamenco.

The “Young Navarra Talents” will have the chance to become known in the festival in one of the concerts, as will the “27 Generación Flamenca” which brings together the Morente and Habichuela flamenco families directed by Juan Carmona “El Camborio”, and featuring young artists such as Soleá Morente, Almaria Saúl Quirós, Carlos Carmona and Juan Carmona, Jr. among others.

The festival will take place at the Baluarte on two different stages which have been denominated the “Sabicas” stage and the “Flamenco on Fire” stage, as well as at the Ciudadela, a sixteenth century fortification that will be the setting for the closing concerts.  Also noteworthy is the recently opened “Casa de Sabicas”, and that the city of Pamplona is directly committed with a gastronomic route called “El Pincho de Sabicas”-

“Flamenco goes north” with a daring festival that places its bets on flamenco with a novel format in the city of the San Fermín celebration, Pamplona, the city where flamenco icon Sabicas first saw the light of day.
