Direct from Spain, the 4th annual Edmonton Flamenco Festival presents flamenco dancer El Oruco and invited artists in an intimate evening of traditional Spanish flamenco song, dance, and guitar.

Featuring
José Manuel Ramos “El Oruco”– Dancer
Karolina González “La Negra” – Dancer
Jonathan Reyes – Singer
José ‘El Pechuguita’  – Singer
José Luis Medina – Guitarist

Born in Seville, El Oruco has performed in international flamenco festivals in Europe and the United States with renowned flamenco artists such as Israel Galván, Rocío Molina, Rosario ¨La Tremendita¨, Esperanza Fernández, Pastora Galván, Argentina, Concha Jareño and José Ángel Carmona, among others.

In the words of world renowned dancer Rocio Molina – “As a dancer I define his image as that of a wild boar, I like him because he has that aggressiveness, that school, he has a strangeness of sweetness that is something that I find rare. He has a delicacy and sweetness in contrast to his image and his physique, which takes you away, it surprises you … He is very complete, El Oruco has it all.”

Workshops with our guest artists are planned for March 14th and 15th. Information coming soon.
