Flamenco Peña!

Description Jazz Bar Flamenco Peña Sundays 3-5.30pm, 2013 Summer Dates

Join the finest flamenco artistes performing the very best flamenco to promote and enrich Edinburgh's culture of flamenco.

The bi-weekly Flamenco Peña is a cultural association dedicated to flamenco. We offer the chance for gifted amateurs to perform and practice, and network with local flamenco artists. We also offer locals and visitors an opportunity to see flamenco performed in a more relaxed setting, at a nominal charge which goes directly to the operation of our cultural association.

On Sunday 19th May we will focus on Tangos, and will have a tangos dance and compás workshop between 3.00-4.00pm. The Flamenco tango style has a 2x4 and 4x4 beat, ie, the structure that supports the majority of roots music from around the world. The tangos come from Cuba and are a dance of cutting grassroots. The pace is well marked, a quality that makes it a very accessible. The dance and rhythm upbeat tempo allows it to be easily interpreted with brilliant and expressive dance movements. 

So if you have never tried flamenco before, this is a great opportunity to taste it, giving students the opportunity to participate in the Peña!
