Fiona Malena Flamenco Ensemble presents their new Flamenco work "La Cueva". Inspired by the fantastical landforms of Cappadocia, Turkey and the rich musical inspiration of that region, La Cueva is a imaginative and beautiful journey told through Flamenco.
The project of creating La Cueva began earlier this year, in the heart of an ancient region filled with rock pillars, fairy chimneys and 1,500 year old Byzantine caves.
Dancer/Artistic Director Fiona Malena, traveled with London based director Saulo Jamariqueli to the rock caves, where they shot sequences that form the creative direction behind this very personal and highly visual production.
In addition to dance, featured musicians include guitarist Álvaro Antona Villar (Spain), Ney flautist Esref Berk Tukoglu (Turkey), percussionist Mehmed Mert Baycan (Turkey), and award winning singing Juan Fariña (Spain), who has just released his new album and was nominated this year for one of the most prestigious awards in Flamenco (Flamenco Hoy).
