THE ABILITY OF BEING ONE, THE SECRET LANGUAGE OF FLAMENCO
Who are we?
FLAMENCOLÉ means purity, rhythm and feeling, and the group manages to bewitch us with a wild Flamenco. The magic is present throughout the whole show, accompanying you by the hand for a fabulous journey of emotional intensity. Suitable dispute to the loneliness, from the happiness and the partying, to the desperation and the weeping. Versions and perversions of songs impregnated with passion and sensuality. Sarsalé undresses, showing you the deepest of the feelings towards the ”palos de cante jondo”, the seguiriyas or the fandango, which emerged from the pain, the distress and the desperation. The music comforts the senses so much that it hurts.
