Concert and Workshops by Alicia Carrasco and Jose Manuel Leon


We are thrilled to host a concert and workshops by singer Alicia Carrasco and guitarist Jose Manuel Leon.

On Sunday 21st May they will present their project Mujer Klórica. Drawing on the history of Flamenco as a political art form, their songs explore themes of social justice, tolerance and the role of women in Flamenco. Musically they mix traditional flamenco forms with elements of jazz and experimental music.

Alicia and Jose have worked with artists such as Carmen Linares and Gerado Nuñez and are recognised as leading innovative flamenco artists in Spain. They will be joined by percussionist Ruven Rippik and the concert will also feature a number of solo pieces by Jose.

During the afternoon there will be workshops for guitarists and people wanting to learn and try flamenco cante, the rhythm and the meaning behind the words. Both workshops will focus on Alegrias. These will be very limited in numbers and can be booked through the links below.
