Attab Haddad Quintet

Flamenco Arabe

Flamenco Arabe: One of a series of concerts produced by Arts Canteen that aims to highlight the connection and build on it with original compositions and renditions of melodies from Andalucia and the Arab world that shows the common thread that runs through these traditions. While flamenco music was born, and still lives, among the scenic green hills of Andalusia in southern Spain, some performers have moved beyond both the geographical and the stylistic boundaries of traditional flamenco to incorporate a variety of new styles into their work.

Castanights Night of Flamenco

Castanights Presents A Night of Flamenco: Drawing on the Andalusian tradition of flamenco dancing and music as well as the burning passion for the art form within London's strong Spanish communities - from the little tapas restaurants to the flamenco festival at Saddler's Wells - for a fist flamenco night at the Jazz Cafe, they have commissioned one of the city's leading flamenco guitarists Ramon Ruiz to play alongside the Attab Haddad quintet, who fuse traditional flamenco with Middle Eastern and classical influences.
