Flamenco charms all kinds of audiences, but it is also a very technical and intransigent art due to its complex rhythmic and visual language.
In light of this, Lourdes Fernández and her Company present "Raíces", an heterogeneous interpretation of the art, drawing on but departing from traditional flamenco in search of an eclectic style of music inspired by Folk, Andalusian Copla, Jazz and other styles. During the show, the audience will enjoy carefully studied and rehearsed acts but the attentive spectator will be able to capture original moments of improvisation. Hence, the magic of Raíces... the inspiration that unfolds and dies... unique therefore unrepeatable... where each viewer can experience the performance through their most personal feelings. Artists express their individual vision of an art, when these visions converge on stage they bring the viewer closer to the essence of flamenco.
Without losing purity and depth, this show aims to universalise Flamenco, make it sing, dance and play, to conquer the world like Rock or Jazz did, to bring Flamenco to a wide and diverse audience, a show for both aficionados and novices, for those who listen to flamenco and those who do not... just yet.
