    Now in its sixth year, Siempre Flamenco joins the Adrienne Arsht Center and Flamenco Festival Miami 2011 to present the VI Festival of Flamenco Song, Café Cantante.  The deepest feeling of flamenco song unites with the intricate fury of dance in a unique concert that will exhilarate and delight both young and old
This year’s festival singers feature Macarena de Jerez, Gabriel de la Tomasa, both rising young stars in Spain, along with the living legend, Mr. Luis Vargas. At 80 plus, he is still singing and is one of the few artists left from his generation.  Flamenco guitar accompaniment will be by Siempre Flamenco’s Paco Fonta, and guest guitarist, Jose Cortes, Pansequito hijo. Flamenco dancing by Celia Fonta and Siempre Flamenco Company will round out the festival lineup.

To compliment this year’s festival, there will be several educational events.
The Festival will open on Thursday, February 17th at the CCE with the 1952 movie “Duende and Misterio of Flamenco” by Edger Neville. This historical movie gives an overview of all the flamenco styles. A lecture on the evolution of flamenco in the past fifty years by flamenco journalist Estela Zatania will follow.

A Master Class of Cante Flamenco given by Gabriel de la Tomasa and a Bulerias dance workshop by Macarena de Jerez will be offered on Saturday afternoon.

A special introductory class of flamenco guitar for guitarists will be offered on Tuesday,
Februrary 22.

Festival Flamenco Miami will finish up with 5 nights of Ballet Nacional de España
At the  Adrienne Arsht Sanford and Dolores Ziff Opera House.
