Join us for an evening of incredible music and dance as we celebrate the passion of Spain!
Anita La Maltesa and Ramon Ruiz met in London where they joined forces, creating Fiesta Flamenca combining a wonderful display of flamenco dance and guitar, together with Latin American songs.
Anita and Ramon share a musicality and expression of haunting sound, which is an integral part of their spellbinding show which continues to captivate international audiences. Their combined talents interweave a dazzling display of virtuosity and emotion, which sparks the imagination and transports the audience to the heart of Andalucia … the ‘cradle’ of flamenco.
‘Delivers performance after performance’! –BBC
Flamenco legend, Antonio Canales said of Anita ‘Que flamenca eres’! Anita La Maltesa’s sensual voice and breathtaking footwork, together with Ramon Ruiz’s inspirational guitar playing, expands the possibilities of flamenco and changes perceptions of this art form by mining the richness of its traditions while continuing to recall many other genres of music. Joining Fiesta Flamenca at The Grassington Festival will be dancer Felipe de Algeciras, and singer Leo Power from Cadiz.
Food will be provided by the fantastic Corner House Cafe.
