The Loft, Winchester

This gig was at the Loft in the beautiful town of Winchester. The Loft is part to the Winchester Piano Studios, and they organise regular music.

Jason booked us for a performance, and we didn’t disappoint – the night was SOLD out and the audience enjoyed an evening of flamenco dancing and music, where we also performed some of the songs of our forthcoming album.

We received this kind email and picture from Jason:

“Hi Javier

Thank you very much for playing at the Loft; it was an awesome evening of flamenco and everyone had a really wonderful time. You are the best musicians (& dancer) we’ve had at the Loft so far!!
Thanks again & we’ll look forward to getting you back either later this year or early in 2018.
Cheers, Jason & Jo”

Flamenco at Green Note SOLD OUT 28/9/16

Thank you to everyone who came to see us at the cosy Green Note in Camden Town, it is a lovely venue and the first time we played there, the night was Sold Out.

We did a short clip of the evening, so you can have a taste of what to expect in our flamenco performances. The crowd singing “otra, otra!” is always the sign that the audience wants more!

Wedding of Christina & Nicolas 4/6/16

I leave you with this wonderful photos of a private performance in France, near Marseille, with a dramatic backdrop.

This was a flamenco performance for Christina and Nicolas’s wedding, on the 4th June 2016 in a beautiful French countryside house.

We performed some traditional flamenco dance and then other lighter Spanish music, and we had a great ovation from the guests, who were enjoying the war summer day.

Thank you to www.alextome.com photography for the pictures.

2015 in review

This year we saw Alma Gitana learn a lot. For a pretty new project, we are already performing in very interesting places. For 2016 we are working in our first album, and we expect to reach farther, with a show already scheduled in France!

Our singer, Javier Moreno, is travelling to India for an Indian singing retreat that will surely inspire him for the new recordings. After all, the Gipsys and their art evolved and migrated from that area of Asia hundreds of years ago.

We hope to bring you news about our recordings very soon.

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2015 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 1,000 times in 2015. If it were a cable car, it would take about 17 trips to carry that many people.

Live At Cafe Barcelona 29/5/15

Another sold out and magnificent flamenco show at this South London cosy venue, which ended with an standing ovation.

Alma Gitana is gaining followers every day, and a Spanish “aficionado” pointed to us: “I have seen a lot of flamenco in the south of Spain, and I have to say you are really really good”.

Another member of the audience mentioned how this show, with the privilege of seeing the performers in such a close up, was much better than her recent attendance at another flamenco show in Sadler’s Wells.

Indeed flamenco is much more powerful in small settings, raw and mesmerizing.
