We excited to be back to LIVE!
FLAMENCASIAN 2021 LIVE brings the best of Flamenco in Singapore and seeks to form artistic alliances and build bridges with Singaporean and Asia based artistes to create exciting new works.
The program starts with traditional flamenco in FLAMENCO PURO, which range from the deep profound roots of the Martinete to its evolution with the lighthearted and flirtatious Guajiras laced with Cuban influences.
Next, we joined by CANDELA, a Spanish Band Quartet featuring Carlos Sendros (guitar, voice), Maria Lopez (bass), Alina Ramirez (piano), Lalit Kumar (percussion), showcasing original compositions, accompanied by Flamenco Sin Fronteras dancers.
Finally, the highlight of evening is AMOR RATII – a love story across 2 cultures.
Amor – is Love in Spanish, and Rati is the goddess of love in Indian Mythology.
Amor Ratii tells a story of love, separation, and reunion of 2 lovers played by Ponnamma Devaiah and Toshiaki Konno; supported by a band of Indian musicians (Nawaz Mirajkar on tabla, Raghavendran Rajasekaran on flute, Tanuja Amit Sane on vocals) and Flamenco musicians (Antonio Vargas on guitar, Carlos Sendros on guitar/vocals, Lalit Kumar on percussion), directed by Maestro Antonio Vargas. With the juxtaposition of technique and emotive expressions of the two styles, from the intricate kathak facial expressions with hand gestures, to the deep profound singing of Flamenco jondo, AMOR RATII is an amalgamation of the emotional aspects and rhythmic styles of both Flamenco and Kathak.
