International Artists Turn Uruguay into a Flamenco Show

MONTEVIDEO – Dancers, singer, guitarists and percussionists will all be on hand starting Wednesday to turn Uruguayan theaters, clubs and other settings into a celebration worthy of southern Spain, on the occasion of the 1st International Flamenco Festival of Montevideo.

“The goal is to create a space where flamenco artists from all over Latin American and Spain can come together,” the manager of the event, Maria Silvina Garay, told EFE.

The artists in charge of transmitting the wild excitement of this style of song and dance will be from Argentina, Chile, Cuba, Spain, the United States and the host country, Uruguay.

“There are many excellent flamenco artists in the region who were trained in Spain,” said Garay, who is also a show producer, adding that thanks to the high level of accomplishment that exists in South America, “we feel flamenco as deeply as if we were in Andalusia,” the Spanish region where the art was born.

From Nov. 1-9, the project will offer audiences all around Uruguay shows of flamenco dancing, concerts, and even several flash mobs (massive dances in public areas).

Argentines Alicia Fiuri and Nestor Spada, Chilean guitarist Carlos Ledermann, the Spaniards Eduardo Guerrero and Rocio Bazan, the American based in Spain, Lakshmi Basile, and Uruguayans Dayana Gonzalez and Maria Noel Calveiro are some of the artists who will entertain at the festival.

“Going to Spain is always good for the learning experience, but making a career of it here is a real possibility,” said Uruguayan dancer Tatiana Ruiz, noting that in Uruguay “there are no flamenco theaters” and that these spaces are where performers really get down to work and polish their style.
