“Gran Espectáculo de Música, Cante y Baile”
CalleJondo is the exciting new flamenco show which takes you on a journey from the purest flamenco traditions to contemporary fusion to the wacky and unorthodox. The name CalleJondo comes from the Spanish words “calle” (meaning street), “callejón” (meaning alleyway) and “jondo” (meaning the purest and most serious styles of flamenco).
Artistic directors Rebeca, Martín and Josie met while performing in the streets of Seville. Drawn together by a mutual interest in learning from the others’ varied and unusual artistic backgrounds – Rebeca from a flamenco and international family, coming from a background of circus, music and sports, Martín from a gypsy flamenco family steeped in tradition as well as eletronic music production, and Josie who’s parents were ballet dancers and who herself trained and worked extensively as a contemporary dancer – soon united and began performing together.
They have already performed at several venues in Seville and Malaga while continuing to experiment with new ideas and try them out on the unsuspecting spectators of their street performances. Tonight they present to you their latest work which draws on their shared knowledge of the deepest flamenco traditions and infuses it with contemporary influences and the power of street arts to make a truly unforgettable experience.
