The SGAE Foundation continues to collaborate with Flamenco Festival London as part of its FlamencoEñe and JazzEñe programs to internationalize Spanish music. Specifically, the Foundation will present performances by Spanish artists Kiki Morente and
David Carmona (July 12), participants in the most recent edition of FlamencoEñe; and Antonio Lizana (July 11), who was selected in the 4th JazzEñe showcase in 2017. Both showcases brought together a series of foreign performing arts presenters and promoters with a selection of flamenco musicians from Spain.
The initiative of the SGAE Foundation has opened the doors of the international circuit to these three artists who will export their talent within the official program of the Flamenco Festival London 2019, which will be held in London from July 2 to 14. Antonio Lizana, Kiki Morente and David Carmona will be part of the roster that the Flamenco Festival has designed for different stages throughout London. This is a privilege for these rising artists as they will perform alongside veteran and renowned artists such as Sara Baras, Miguel Poveda, Rocío Molina, Olga Pericet, Jesus Carmona and Maria Terremoto.
Renowned saxophonist and singer Antonio Lizana will open JazzEñe’s program in London on July 11 (8:00 pm) at the Cervantes Theater, 229 Union St, London. Lizana will present to the British public the songs of his most recent album: Oriente.
The FlamencoEñe showcase in London will begin on July 12, at 6:00 pm, at the Lilian Baylis Studio (183 Rosebery Ave, Clerkenwell, London) will be the debut of flamenco guitar virtuoso David Carmona and his show Un sueño de locura (A Dream of Madness).
Two hours later (8:30 pm) the youngest of the Morente dynasty, Kiki Morente will perform in the same space to present the Albayzín show, a tribute to his father, Enrique Morente, and the neighborhood of Granada where he grew up, in which he will be accompanied by dancer Irene Rueda.
