Us: What is & Why TuFlamenco
TuFlamenco is an Flamenco Company based in Edinburgh formed by well-known members of the Scottish flamenco music and dance scene where we have worked, collaborated and performed with many different projects, groups and companies since more than a decade, until we decided to create this itinerant school and live events productions company.
In all these many years we have acumulated great experience thanks to participate in a wide variety of concerts and events. Also, paralel to this many performances, teaching flamenco in its many forms from dance dance, guitar, singing and rhythms privately and for other companies has been our main activity. This is the reason why we decided to create our own school and company as we have been deeply involved with the flamenco community during all this time.
Whether you are interested in lessons or in any sort of event or performance we are happy to assist and help you to organise it. We can adequate prices to your needs and help you to make it truly unforgettable. We have the experience and all necessary sound equipment plus we work with a wide range of venues where we can deliver your event accordingly and professionally. If you have an idea for your event please don’t hesitate and consult us.
Among some other events and performances, one of our main regular events is the Edinburgh Fringe Festival (each year in August) where we have performed together yearly since 2011 with many different projects receiving great personal reviews and also several 5-star reviews since then. In the last few years we have performed with "Art of Believing" from Daniel Martinez Flamenco Company initiated in 2017; "Rootless" also initiated in 2017; “Alba Flamenca" (2011-2012-2013-2014-2015-2016-2017 and last & past 2018); “Dondeduendes” (2011-2012) “Flamenco Flamenco” and "Abanico Flamenco". In 2013 we created our band “Cheekyrrikis Flamenco Power” as a fresh twist in the typical flamenco genre.
Recently, in September 2018, we just created TuFlamenco, our own Flamenco School, where as before in our past projects and collaborations, we will give all our soul, passion, dedication, responsibility, discipline, heart and talent so finally, after so many years working for other companies, we initiate our own artistic business adventure. It’s hard work to start from ground zero after so many years but as someone told us after a concert one day: "there are two things that nobody cannot take away from you: your talent and your ideas, because they are inside of your heart and mind".
