Newsroom 15/02/2010 | 11:18

Bucharest will enjoy a month-long Flamenco Festival, as February is dedicated to Spanish culture. The festival, which will feature live dance shows and concerts, will take place between February 8 and March 7 and showcase consecrated flamenco artists from the classical and modern scene. It is organized by the Cervantes Institute and the Spanish Embassy.

The event opener will be Sentimientos (Feelings), a dance performance staged at Odeon Theater on February 8. The show is headlined by Yolanda Osuna, a dance prodigy who started flamenco at the age of three and has collaborated with many important names on the scene such as Mayte Martin, Miguel Poveda, Arcangel, Chano Lobato, Julian Estrada, El Lebrijano, Luis de Cordoba, El Cabrero and Nino de Pura. The chamber music instrumental ensemble La Maestranza will play on February 16 at the Romanian Athenaeum. The ensemble is led by Jose Maria Gallardo del Rey, a composer and guitar player who breathes new life into Spanish classical music. The ensemble comprises musicians who play classical music and jazz, tango and flamenco, using instruments such as the flute, clarinet, viola, cello, percussion and guitar. On three consecutive days in March, films by director Carlos Saura will run on the screens of Elvira Popescu cinema. Saura flies the flag for cinematography of the late 20th century, having made a series of films on tango and the art of flamenco: Bodas de sangre (1981), El amor brujo, Sevillanas and Flamenco (1995).
