FLAMENCO EVENING: Sułkowska, Soto, Kowaliński
On the last Sunday of May, the Gothic Hall will be filled with flamenco sounds. The atmosphere of southern Spain will be created by the dancer Anita Sułkowska, vocalist Borja Soto and guitarist Damian Kowaliński. The concert will be accompanied by the tasting and sale of Spanish regional products. We invite you on a journey to Mediterranean culture.
Anita Sułkowska is a graduate of the Academy of Music in Katowice and Philosophy at the University of Silesia. She has been dancing flamenco for 13 years. Initially, she was encouraged to flamenco by classical Spanish music and films by Carlos Saura. She went to the first class with a slight reserve, but this impulse gave birth to her passion. Since then, she has been extensively trained in Poland and abroad. For 5 years she attended the "Triana" flamenco school in Warsaw, where she trained under the supervision of Marta Dębska. She regularly travels to the cradle of flamenco - Seville, to study with Spanish maestros. Her teachers were, among others: Juan Polvillo, Belen Lopez, Leonor Leal, Angel Atienza, Alicia Marquez, Maria Moreno, Rafael Campallo, Andres Pena, Isabel Bayon, Irene Alvarez, Concha Vargas, Carmen Ledesma, Ramon Martinez, Soraya Clavijo, Ana Morales, Choni Perez Garcia, Ursula Lopez and others. She is also the founder of the "Flamenco Ensemble" with its original compositions. She has performed, inter alia, in Madrid, at the invitation of the Polish embassy, with the project "Tablao Chopin".
