The series known as Flamenco Viene del Sur has expanded its program this year to include yet another city, that of Almería, joining Cádiz, Córdoba and Jaén added in last year’s edition, while Seville, Granada and Málaga maintain their stable presence established in 1997 making this the most important Andalusian flamenco circuit.
The program was presented containing a total of 38 shows in seven provincial capitals of Andalucía over a period of five months. The series opens in Granada on February 23rd with Antonio el Pipa and his show “Puertas Adentro”, and ends June 3rd in Cádiz with “Pasos para Dos” of Rosario Toledo and Ana Salazar.
