Flamenco Express with guest star Titi Flores
Titi Flores is a dancer not to be missed. A furiously effervescent dancer of unique power, imagination and grace. A gypsy from Arcos de la Frontera, he has shared the stage with artists such as Camarón de la Isla, Paco Toronjo, Aurora Vargas, Chiquetete, Turronero and Chano Lobato. After relocating to Madrid he worked with La Tati, Rafael Amargo, Cristóbal Reyes and Juan Andrés Maya and has recently founded his own dance company – Compañía Titi Flores.
The guest singer for this show is Antonio ‘El Pola’ from Cañada Rosal in the province of Sevilla. Antonio has toured with Concha Vargas, Antonio Moya, and Inés Bacan and sang in La Carbonería alongside Gaspar de Utrera and Juan del Gastor. He has also worked with Juana Amaya, Joselito Fernandez, Miguel ‘El Funi’ and brothers Paco and Juan del Gastor.
Flamenco Express principal dancer is La Joaquina who has worked with Christina Hoyos, Paco Peña and others in Madrid, Tokyo, New York, Montreal, Toronto, Paris and throughout Europe. Flamenco Express guitarist Chris Clavo learned with flamenco maestros Carlos Heredia, Diego Amaya and Pepe Justicia. He has performed throughout Britain and Europe sometimes collaborating with jazz virtuoso Eduardo Niebla and Iraqi pop sensation Jassim.
