Afra Rubino y Nasrine Rahman

Afra Rubino and Nasrine Rahmani

22 august 12:00h Flamenco en los Balcones - Balcón Calle La Mañueta

The guitarist Afra Rubino, born to an Italian mother and a Swedish father, studied at the Fundación Cristina Heeren in Seville.   She is constantly working to develop her artistic expression, create her own themes, open her ears and find her own voice.

Currently she lives in Gothenburg, where she delivers speeches about flamenco besides developing her career as guitar player.

Nasrine Rahmani was born in Australia, to a mother from Mauritania and a father from Iran.  She is considered as the female percussionist that best represents the flamenco scene.  

Despite her young age, she has worked with leading figures such as Montse Cortés, Jorge Pardo or Juanito Makandé. She is well known for her delicacy, her ability for improvisation and the depth of her language.

Afra and Nasrine, two great women and two great artists, will present a flamenco recital full of magic and freshness that will uncover popular songs as well as their own personal compositions.
