Greetings to all Flamenco lovers!
Needless to say, the global situation today needs not to be rehashed here – that is the job of the media.
Not even Flamenco could avoid the absolute cultural collapse that we are all facing.
We have decided that we will not mention the virus by name on these pages. We will not feed its negative energy. We will just call it “that” virus, or “it” – a thing that we shall not name and that will certainly be forgotten.
Concerts, Flamenco festivals, performances, public and private fiestas – are all cancelled. No one knows for how long. No one knows when we might be able to once again welcome Spanish performers in theaters and concert venues, to receive a much-needed infusion of the universal Flamenco energy that we all know and love.
For this reason, our organization, too, had transferred our services online. We know that it will not be the same authentic experience but, in all truth, this is the only option available. And because we have no sense of knowing whether it is at all realistic to organize this year’s 6th Annual Day of Flameco/Dia del Flamenco 2020, we have decided to make available to you a virtual version of the festival that you can observe from the comfort of your sofa. We introduce to you #FlamencoDeSofa – online Flamenco festival. In this moment, performance artists cannot set foot in theaters nor can audiences cannot set foot in theaters. But we cannot be one without the other. So let’s meet on the sofa.
Comfortably take your seats with your favorite glass of wine, browse for us online, project us on the big screen, turn up the sound to the max, (your neighbors will forgive you), and let’s begin…
…I almost forgot. Spain is one of the hardest-hit countries that is most impacted by “it” (that which must not be named). The most stringent restrictions extend to every Flamenco artist. These restrictions will be in place for a while. Our festival wants to support our beloved artists in their extremely difficult situations. You can view all public performances for free but you can support your favorite artists with donations. I trust that you will all find a monetary value that will be reasonable for you. This will ultimately be an immense support for our artists. No sum is too small but every drop in the bucket counts a great deal.
Donations collected for each performance will be sent to Spain to specific Flamenco companies and will be distributed among the performers who have performed in the recordings.
To submit your donations, you will find the account number in each concert piece and/or performance.
!!Support your soul and your artist from your sofa!!
We wish you a wonderful experience, we thank you for your solidarity, and we look forward to better times ahead!!
