Traditional Flamenco Dance Band
The Flamencos was established in London by the young flamenco artist Jesus. The group’s live shows combine the raw power of flamenco dance with the intensity of “cante jondo” (traditional song).
They will immerse you in Spanish culture with the dazzling choice of costumes, the powerful guitar sound, and the rhythm of the of footwork and castanets.
This talented musical line-up comes in configurations of between 2 and 10 members, and is the ideal choice for themed parties, restaurants, corporate events, exhibitions and more.
The Flamencos has been evolving professionally over the last decade, and is now one of the leaders in its field, performing in a variety of venues in the U.K. and Spain such as the Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club (London), the Royal Festival Hall (London), the Blue Marlin (Ibiza, Spain) and the celebrated Corral de la Moreria (Madrid).
