    Vermut Flamenco

    Casa Sabicas is a facility dedicated to flamenco and food that was born at the same time as the Flamenco On Fire festival in 2014. Since then, it has operated as a flamenco club (“peña flamenca”), apart from becoming a place where one can enjoy the best cuisine proposals. This establishment pays tribute to great Maestro Sabicas, one of the pillars of flamenco guitar..

    Casa Sabicas is located close to the Pamplona cathedral, right downtown. It is a delightful space, authentic and welcoming where we can have vermouth surrounded by the most flamenco atmosphere.

    Zambras from Granada and Flamencos from el Sacromonte

    Curro Albaicín

    Curro Albaicín is the living memory of el Sacromonte, he is song, dance, purebred flamenco. He is the essence of that Granada district that lives the decadence of what’s useful. He has devoted most part of his live to recover and revitalize the essence and the lost inheritance of el Sacromonte. One of his main tasks has been to rescue the Zambra, a dance style genuinely rooted in that district. His irresistible eagerness has transformed him into an informant for anyone interested in researching this magic territory. After residing for 30 years at the Albaycin, Curro returns to the cave where he was born and opens the doors of his souvenirs that are already part of the History of flamenco, to captivate us with this lecture.

    Flamencos contemporáneos

    Susanne Zellinger

    After the speedy development of the contemporary flamenco dancing styles over the last 30 years, you can ask yourself: how did we reach this point? Where are the roots of a Rocio Molina who shows up naked on stage? Or why the male flamenco dancers wear skirts or go around the track? What are the Goldberg Variations doing in a flamenco concert? Susanne Zellinger, professor, editor and journalist, will take care of responding these questions in her lecture “Contemporary flamencos”.
