Debuting in July 2018, Isla Flamenca has become something totally different in the Auckland music scene: an instrumental group with strong traditional Flamenco roots. They play everything from simple dances like Sevillanas and Rumba to important Flamenco forms like Alegrias and Bulerias. Their sound is traditional Flamenco but with a modern rhythmical tinge that borrows from Jazz and Cuban music.

Don’t miss this rare chance to compare the pulsating rhythms and haunting harmonies of flamenco and Latin American music. Featuring flamenco guitarist Ian Sinclair and Latin jazz percussionist Steve Cournane, with guest singer Sebastian Gomez.
