Flamenco Por Cante

Thursday 16 May 2024 - Celedonio Garrido, a wonderful Andalusian flamenco singer born and steeped in the flamenco neighbourhoods of Huelva, Spain, is visiting Calgary this May. He will bring his deep knowledge and execution of the traditional flamenco song forms to participate in three very special nights being hosted by SoundBar, located downtown at 628 8 Avenue SW. Flamenco is the passionate musical art form of Andalusia, the southern region of Spain where gypsy culture has mixed with Moorish and Spanish folkloric culture. Flamenco is the marriage of the singer’s voice to the percussive and emotive guitar, often interpreted by dancers who combine percussive footwork with soulful movement to capture and elevate the intention of the singer. The title of this show, Celedonio’s final SoundBar performance of the series, is Flamenco por Cante, which means Flamenco for the voice of the singer. The focus will be on guitar accompaniment of the voice without dance; however, Maria Regnier, an amazing flamenco dancer, will also be adding some of her artistry to the mix. - Event Details
