Águeda Saavedra, Saray La Pitita and Tete Fernández
The purest flamenco returns to Tablao Flamenco Cordobes during the second half of January. The historic Tablao de Las Ramblas in Barcelona will present a new show entitled ‘Encuentros en la Cumbre del Baile’ (Encounters at the Dance Summit) which will feature the dancers Águeda Saavedra and Saray La Pitita, the bailaor Tete Fernández, the cantaora Loreto de Diego, the singers Loreto de Diego, Juanjo, Bocaíllo and El Coco and the guitarists Eugenio Santiago and Israel Cerreduela.
The bailaora Águeda Saavedra was born in Málaga and began her studies at the age of 7 at the conservatory in that city. At the age of 15 she entered the Conservatory of Dance in Madrid and grew up with masters such as “Betty”, Cristina Visús, Currillo or Rocío Espada among others. Águeda Saavedra won first prize in the Dance Contest of the City of Ribarroja del Turio in 2009 and 2010 and gets a scholarship from the dance company of Antonio Najarro. The bailaora has travelled with her flamenco dance to countries all over the world, such as the United States, England and Italy. She has also worked with great artists such as Jesús Carmona, with whom she has visited stages in China and Dubai, among others, with the show IMPETUS. The artist has also just participated in the series ‘Arde Madrid’, which covers the life of Ava Gardner.
La malagueña will be accompanied by Saray La Pitita, a dancer born in Granada in 1988. The artist belongs to a saga of flamenco artists (she is the daughter of the guitarist José Fernández). At the age of 16 she began to train with artists such as Juan Manuel Fernández Montoya ‘Farruquito’ or Juana Amaya. At the age of 18 she began her professional career together with the company of the artist Joaquín Cortés, with whom she travelled all over the world. He has also worked with artists such as Farru, Josemi Carmona, Jorge Pardo and Rubén Dantas, among others.
Along with the bailaoras will be Ricardo Fernández “El Tete”, a young bailaor born in 2000 in the bosom of a flamenco family (he is the younger brother of the bailaor Miguel Fernández El Yiyo). In spite of his youth, El Tete has made its way into the flamenco world and little by little he has surrounded himself with great flamenco artists. Among his references and influences are José Maya, El Yiyo, Farruquito and Joaquín Cortes. The cast will be completed until the end of the month by the singers Loreto de Diego, Juanjo, Bocaíllo and El Coco and the guitarists Eugenio Santiago and Israel Cerreduela.
