Flamenco Express returns to Eastbourne with another cargo of raw, heart-wrenching flamenco - featuring ‘sizzling soloist’ La Joaquina and guitar virtuoso Chris Clavo. Plus the overwhelming power, imagination and grace of Emilio Ochando; and the extreme presence of singer Juan-José Suárez - a true gypsy of the Extremadura, and household name in Spain, whose collaborators include: Andrés MarÍn, Mario Maya, Carmelilla Montoya, Belén Maya, and Antonio Canales.
Juan is in hot demand as a composer for dance, theater and movie soundtracks. And is constantly adding new musical colours to the modern flamenco palette. A major voice in flamenco.
Emilio Ochando, a phenomenon from the Ballet Nacional de España and Ballet Nacional de Cuba who took London apart in 2018. An acknowledged international artist in constant demand, Emilio has collaborated with Miguel Ángel Rojas, Carlos Rodríguez, Domingo Ortega, Angel Rojas and Carlos Rodrigue among many others.
His company 3DEUNO is now in its fourth year, and touring throughout Spain. Emilio recently won first prize at the III International Dance Festival in Almería.
Flamenco is as universal, powerful and versatile as the blues, as epic as opera, and as delicate and pin-sharp as ballet. Sex and music and history in one hit.
For over twenty years, Flamenco Express has existed to do justice to this amazing music by choosing the best artists and allowing them total freedom of expression to showcase the full range of the flamenco repertoire in their own way. The result is a new emotional and artistic experience every night, delivered by an astonishing range of talent.
