Solo Flamenco presents flamenco in its purest traditional form, the cuadro. A cuadro is a flamenco group that includes a dancer, guitarist, singer and percussionist.

This informal presentation will include flamenco ranging from cante jondo (deep profound song), to cante chico (light joyful song); an experimental percussive number exploring the elements of metal and water; and the famously challenging Seguriyas.

“We are a four-piece jazz group speaking the language of Flamenco. The beauty of the cuadro is that it allows for unadulterated, individual expression in a spontaneous interaction that can only be captured in the moment.”Kasandra “La China”

Supported through The Dance Centre’s Artist-in-Residence program.
