Chicago Flamenco Festival 2011


February 11-March 29, 2011
Various venues throughout Chicago

During the Flamenco Festival 2011, some of Spain’s most popular and up-and-coming flamenco stars fill Chicago with music, dance performances, and workshops. Taking place in many venues around the city, the festival celebrates this time-honored, Andalusian art. This year’s festival pays a special tribute to a legend that has left us, a singer who has made an extraordinary contribution to the world of flamenco: Enrique Morente. Morente brought an element of the divine to the art of flamenco and transformed it into a passionate experience for all five senses. Rest in peace, Maestro.

One of the most celebrated jazz musicians “recruited” by flamenco, Chano Domínguez is also one of the most highly-demanded in any genre of Spanish music. Before he descended fully onto the flamenco scene with his Chano Domínguez Trío, he had already worked with renowned artists such as Pepe de Lucía, Potito, and Juan Manuel Cañizares. He has achieved an unusual integration of jazz and flamenco rhythms, playing tangos, compás de bulerías, fandangos, and soleás on the piano with a traditional jazz structure.

Accompanied by a vocalist and a guitarist, dancer Malagueña “La Lupi” offers Chicago one of her most intimate performances, responding to the music’s heartbreaking emotion and stirring rhythm and beat. With expressiveness in both body and soul, she conveys flamenco’s art to her audience in a performance that is contemporary without ever losing the essence of pure flamenco.
