“Dolor, Alegrias” Flamenco Performance at Gedung Kesenian Jakarta

“Dolor Alegrias” (Pain, Cheers) is a creation by Eva Manzano accompanied by Iván “Centenillo” (singer), Antonio Gómez “El Turry” (singer, flute) y César Cubero (guitar) representing a new generation of dancers and singers, who have kept alive the roots of Flamenco.

This performance is a vindication of joyful flamenco as a method of healing. It is a show of pure, simple flamenco, bringing winds of feral Flamingo from the mountains of Granada. It opens with a heartfelt introduction by tientos invoking, the only concession to melancholy, to continue with festive tangos, fandangos of the Albaicín or the contagious joy of Seville corraleras.
