This will include songs that are part of Granada’s heritage – traditional forms of gypsy songs, passed on between generations of families in the Sacromonte district including the families of the artists themselves.

The artists:
Paco Fernandes – Baile (dance)
‘ El Principe Gitano’…one of Granada’s leading male flamenco dance artists and although still young in years he carries a wealth of experience at both national and international level. He combines a mix of technique and strength which he delivers in his own unique style.
Alejandro ‘ El Gambibas’ – Cantaor (singer)
Despite his young age he has a maturity and depth of voice that one can only describe as ‘el cante gitano puro’ (pure, deep gypsy song). Although he lives in Granada, he performs all over Spain and has been regularly contracted overseas in the last few years, especially in London and Brighton.
Manuel Cortes Heredia – Guitar
A popular Granada guitarist, he works regularly with some of Granada’s leading artists in several of the more prestigious Flamenco Tablaos (flamenco venues). His style reflects his maturity and calm persona. A lifelong musician and expert accompanist, he has years of professional experience working with singers and dancers at the highest level.

David Morales In Concert on 23/03/2016

This should be great !

Born in La Línea de la Concepción (Cadiz, Spain), dancer and coreographer David Morales started his artistic career at the early age of 6 years old. He has taken part in most of the main Flamenco festivals of the late 70´s, sharing the stage with big flamenco artists such as Camarón de la Isla, Fosforito, Paco Cepero and Chiquetete.

Although that early starting career, his artistic path was planned for a long term. This way, he has gained a very respectable career through three decades, including several stages of Flamenco and with the advantage that he’s still a thirty something talented man.

Instituto Cervantes in Manchester is very proud to introduce this incredible young artist with a company of a female dancer (bailaora), a guitarist and a singer (cantaor).

Tickets: £10 (general) / £8 (with concessions)
