Another new dynamite flamenco cocktail from the inexhaustible talent-pool of Flamenco Express. Powerhouse dancer Alejandro Molinero returns by deamd, this time partnered by La Nati Vallecas - a poet of the streets and true High Priestess of Flamenco. All plus 'sizzling soloist' La Joaquina, and guitar maestro Chris Clavo. La Nati La Nati commands total attention from her audience, who submit with pleasure. Born and bred in the Barrio Madrileno de Vallecas of Madrid, hers is a full-blooded voice of street. Her annual visit to Britain is a rarity not to be missed. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dWFkgbIAAMo Alejandro Molinero A dancer of fiery physicality and imagination who has won competitions for choreography for Flamenco & Spanish Classical dance and performed throughout Europe. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kvs2Vt24bBQ "Leading the dancers, La Joaquina, tiny, urgent and intense, explored a vast emotional vocabulary, and juxtaposed vulnerability and tenderness with violence and aggression. Her feet rattle off tempestuous beats, her sinewy arms snake angrily and her taut body is totally driven by her feelings. Wild and untameable, there is certainly no empty prettiness in her dance." - Emma Manning. The Stage Chris Clavo "Two amazing guitar solos from Chris Clavo and Jesus Alvarez made string instruments sing with impossible precision. " Staffordshire Post. Reviews Reviews "Unlike some of the splashy and slightly pretentious star-name shows at the Sadler's festival flamenco last month, this performance is totally direct; it's immediate, involving and completely beguiling." Exeunt Magazine 2016" "This feisty company delivers the finest in flamenco, plus sizzling soloist La Joaquina" Time Out "Forget the sterile, regimented flamenco so often served up to tourists: this was the real thing, and to say that it packed a punch is an understatement" South Wales Evening Post " Delighted the audience, who rewarded them with rapturous applause and encores. " - Dance Europe "An unforgettable evening." - Anglo Spanish Journal
