REVIEWS: “…the stuttering stamp of Roshanne’s dazzling feet, the suppleness of her yearning arms and her facial mobility took the evening to another level.” Radio Adelaide
“Fast, intense and exhilarating.” The Sydney Morning Herald
Founded in 2013 by Flamenco singer and producer Zoe Velez, Flamenkisimo was born out of a desire to acquaint more Australian audiences with this distinctive art form. Featuring high calibre Australian Flamenco artists, they have sold out shows in Sydney, Canberra and Hobart. They are a regular feature at Sydney’s Foundry616, Hobart’s Salamanca Arts Centre and The Sydney Fringe Festival.
Flamenkisimo means ultra-flamenco and its artists thrive on paying homage to this UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage listed art form. While based in Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide, they are proud to have studied abundantly in Spain.
Evocación features artists who have performed extensively, most notably at; Adelaide Fringe Festival, Darwin Guitar Festival, Adelaide International Guitar Festival, Sydney Fringe Festival, Sydney Opera House, WOMADelaide, Woodford Folk Festival, Melbourne Festival and Hawkes Bay Arts Festival (New Zealand).
