The November Flamenco Evening is a treat for lovers of flamenco puro, the traditional art of flamenco, the core of which is dancing, singing and guitar. After an almost three-year break, the Wrocław audience will hear Carmen Fernández - a flamenco star from Utrera. The Spanish singer will be accompanied by the Warsaw duo Marta Dębska "Robles" (dance) and Arturo Muszyński "El Polaco" (guitar). We invite you to the emotional performance of the Los Payos group!
Carmen Fernández was born in 1968 in Utrera - a town in the province of Seville considered to be particularly cultivating the art of flamenco. She comes from an extremely gifted family with flamenco traditions, which includes, among others legendary singer Juan Talega. As the youngest daughter in a gypsy family, she grew up in the spirit of flamenco. Her mother is a singer and her father is a dancer. No wonder Carmen devoted herself entirely to Arte Flamenco. First as a dancer, and then a vocalist, she became a faithful interpreter of old, traditional forms, and yet she always gives her performances a personal touch. She is a singer with a solid foundation and flamenco knowledge. Thanks to her strong, catchy voice, she won the hearts of the audience at countless flamenco peñas in Spain and at many festivals in Germany and the Benelux countries. She has collaborated with, among others, Concha Vargas, Joaquin Ruiz, Carmen Ledesma and Andres Marin. She has released 3 albums – the latest "De Corazón" was released in 2015. As a singer and dancer, she performed on many large stages in Spain, France, Austria, Italy, Hungary, Czech Republic, Germany, Poland, Russia, Denmark, the Baltic States, The Netherlands, Belgium, Canada and Japan.
