Seville adds a new event to its jondo calendar. The 1st Muestra de Flamenco is to be presented at the Teatro Central from September 24th to October 13th, 2013. The bill offers 25 baile, cante and toque shows by artists of the genre, recognized and young ones alike. Javier Barón, Milagros Mengíbar, José Galván with Pastora Galván, Andrés Peña with Pilar Ogalla, Juan Andrés Maya, Ana Morales and Rosario Toledo, among others, feed the baile section. Voices will ring out such as those of La Macanita, La Tobala, Inés Bacán, El Torta and Jesús Méndez. Jerez-born guitarist Juan Diego will perform 'Respira!' with guests like Remedios Amaya. And at the Sala B, there will be more experimental proposals such as 'Una experiencia plástica del flamenco' which unites live cante and painting.
