April 20th - Flamenco at the Winspear.

Direct from Spain, Jairo Barrull and his company of internationally acclaimed performers bring the traditional style of flamenco puro to the Winspear stage.

El llanto (the cry) is power: power that moves you. El llanto of a singer or a guitarist is capable of making you feel the most profound place of your inner self. El llanto makes you weep, fall in love. It makes you dance, dance with feeling. From el llanto comes ‘El Ole’ and ‘El Duende’. El llanto is pure, it is beauty, and it is sadness and suffering. El llanto is the mixture of cultures, identities, and it is history. It is the root, the beginning of everything flamenco. It is the voice of our ancestors, the voice of the indigenous people that came from India centuries ago: THE UNTOUCHABLES

Tickets $55 through the Winspear box office.

The main event of the 2018 Edmonton Flamenco Festival.
Workshops with our guest artists are planned for April 21st and 22nd. Information coming in 2018.

  • Jairo Barrull in rehearsal. Check out his amazing ability to play with rhythm. The whole middle section of this pata por bulerias is in counter-time.
  • Bought my tickets yesterday! There are still many good tickets. Go early to get the best seats. For this type of dance it's important to get good seats: You want to see the feet, facial expression and ensemble! :) See you there!
