Flamenco Is Community
Spend any time with flamenco artists in Andalucía and you'll quickly learn that flamenco is community. Young artists share the stage with professionals. Seasoned artists are treated with respect, warmth and affection. Local flamenco festivals mark the passing of the seasons.
Mojacar Flamenco and your community
From the beginning, Mojácar Flamenco has worked to build the community for flamenco, both in Southern California and wherever we tour.
When we bring a show to a venue, whether it's a new work like Toque Jondo or one of our more traditional flamenco shows, we look for ways to bring flamenco to the community through workshops, lecture demonstrations or by using local artists in our productions. Whatever community involvement we can create, our goal is always to show audiences the same warmth and openness we experienced in Spain.
