The 6th Annual Bay Area Flamenco Festival takes place from October 21st through October 30th with performances and master classes by visiting artists from Spain including guitarist Diego del Morao and group (October 22, Brava Theater, San Francisco); singer Diego El Cigala (October 23rd, Zellerbach Hall, Berkeley); and dancer Jose Maya & Company (October 30th, Cowell Theater, San Francisco).
The Festival has been made possible in part by a grant from the Alliance for California Traditional Arts in partnership with the Walter and Elise Haase Fund, the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation and the James Irvine Foundation.
Representing the area’s vibrant Flamenco community, The Bay Area Flamenco Partnership is dedicated to fostering the flamenco arts, creating and presenting quality flamenco to audiences throughout Northern California. Founded in 2004 by Artistic Director Nina Menéndez, the BAFP has produced numerous major flamenco performances featuring world-class artists from Spain, including the annual Bay Area Flamenco Festival and the Festival Flamenco Gitano. The BAFP also provides a forum for the rich pool of outstanding local flamenco artists and facilitates cultural exchange opportunities and workshops with visiting artists from Spain.
