An explosive fiesta of flamenco
An Edinburgh Fringe regular for more than 11 years, Alba Flamenca continues to bring together some of the best flamenco talent available to offer the authentic voice of flamenco. Hot, fiery and passionate yet also soulful and intense, this is an emotional roller coaster like no other.
Bursting with raw emotion and explosive rhythms, this fiesta of pure dance, music and intensity brings the best of a real Andalucian night. Performed inside the cauldron of our small, intimate venue, this is not so much a show to watch but one to experience, as the fiery guitar and percussive dancing carry you away on wave after wave of tragic and joyous vocals.
‘Powerful dance, frenetic guitar, pulsating rhythms’ ***** (ThreeWeeks).
Daily show at 19.30 / Matinee at 15.30 (Fri – Sun)
