Arturo Pareja Obregón recently released Como tú me Enseña. The April 13 showcase also includes the mestizaje (hybridization) of Esther Weekes, a Londoner who has created her own genre that fuses flamenco and blues.

Young flamenco singer Pepe El Boleco and Seville dancer Marina Valiente will dive into the flamenco roots to give them new meanings on Saturday, April 14.

Closing the series on Sunday, April 15, two leading artists within current flamenco scene, Diego Guerrero, recently nominated for Latin Grammy, and Pepe Luis Carmona, founder of the new flamenco group La Barbería del Sur.

Artist Profiles: La Barberia del Sur

La Barberia del Sur

La Barberia del Sur was a Madrid-based group formed by some of the foremost talents of the 1980s Flamenco scene, descendants of the purest dynasties. The youngsters dared to venture out and experiment with their traditional music combining it with a variety of musical forms: pop, jazz, salsa, etc.

The members of were:

Pepe Luis Carmona, nephew of the well known flamenco guitarist Pepe Habichuela Pepe Luis is a flamenco singer in the strictest sense of the word: a master of all the traditional forms of the art.

Enrique Heredia: another heir to a family tradition, that of the Montoyita dinasty, who throughout the years have demonstrated their mastery of all sides of flamenco: guitar, song and dance. He has worked with both the most esteemed flamenco artists and some of Spain’s leading pop musicians.

Juan Jose Suarez in the son of Ramon El Portugues, nephew of Porrina and a first cousin of Gypsy rumba group Los Chunguitos. During his youth, he already served his dues as guitar player in the top tablaos of Madrid. He was also, together with Enrique Heredia, the usual accompanist of one of the great masters of the flamenco cante: the late Enrique Morente.

The group reunited in 2009 for a series of concerts.
