At the May Flamenco Evening, we will show the real Andalusian flamenco school, since an excellent dancer from Seville - Asunción Pérez “Choni” - will come to Wrocław. She will be accompanied by a known flamenco singer Borja Soto, and a great Javier Gómez will play the guitar. A masterful, purely Spanish lineup will take us on a journey to the exceptionally beautiful and sunny Seville.

In recent years, he has played for dancers in many competitions in Andalusia, as well as at flamenco festivals in Poland and Italy. Currently, he works as an accompanying guitarist in numerous "tablaos" on the Seville stage, combining these performances with official flamenco guitar studies at the "Rafael Orozco" Major Conservatory in Cordoba.
