Flamenco Fever presents 7th Oak Cliff Flamenco Festival
Flamenco Fever presents the seventh annual Oak Cliff Flamenco Festival. Flamenco, a riveting combination of music and dance, is the focus of this weeklong festival featuring heart-pounding percussion, lightning-fast footwork, and vibrant song and guitar technique. Together, they convey the passion and a constantly changing interpretation of life that is the essence of flamenco.
Julia Alcántara, founder of Flamenco Fever, celebrates her 11th Flamenco Festival in Dallas. Her long career in arts production continues to raise the bar for the art form in Dallas and has gained her backing from dozens of sponsors that have helped the festival grow steadily every year.
The Grand Finale of the Festival will include Alcántara’s original choreography for Solo Quiero Caminar by Jorge Pardo. Pardo has been proclaimed the "Greatest Living Artist" by the French Academy of Jazz, won Spain’s National Prize for Current Music in 2015, and recently won a Grammy as a contributor in Chick Corea's Best Latin Jazz album, Antidote. Slated to headline the Festival but unable to attend for the second time due to Covid-19 travel restrictions, this piece is continually being reworked in each interpretation.
The Oak Cliff Flamenco Festival will feature internationally renowned artists including dancers Julia Alcántara (Texas,) Jorge Robledo (Argentina,) Alejandro Vega (Spain,) and Melissa Cruz (California), cantaor Alejandor Vega (Spain,) and Guitarist Kris “El Cuervo” (Arizona).
