Barcelona is getting ready for an August full of flamenco through an appointment with the youngest talent. Tablao Flamenco Cordobes, the historic local of Las Ramblas in Barcelona that is already preparing its 50th anniversary for next year 2020, programmes the show “Joven Talento Flamenco” between the 1st and 15th of August with two of today’s great young flamenco figures: Manuel Fernández Montoya (El Carpeta) and Ricardo Fernández Ribas (El Tete). The bailaores will be accompanied during the show by the bailaora Sara Barrero, the cantaora Davinia Jaén, the cantaores Manuel de La Nina, Luis de La Fefa and Antonio Campos “Bocaíllo” and the guitarists David Cerreduela, Israel Cerreduela and Justo Fernández “Tuto”.
The Sevillian Manuel Fernández Montoya, known artistically as El Carpeta, is one of the most important and renowned young dancers in the world. Under the influence of his grandfather, “Farruco” and his older brothers “Farruquito” and “Farru” (the latter will be in Tablao Flamenco Cordobes during the second half of August), he is a bailaor who despite his age has already participated in the most important festivals and shows in Spain as well as in countries such as Mexico, the United States, Colombia and Brazil among many others. Her first performance was at the age of 5 with her grandmother “Farruca” and, since then, her artistic career has not stopped growing and receiving awards such as the revelation prize of the International Flamenco Schools of Andalusia among others. She has also shared the stage with artists of the stature of Paco de Lucía, Miguel Poveda and Alejandro Sanz. In 2018, together with his brothers Farruquito and Farru, he launched the show Flamenco TR3S.
Ricardo Fernández, known as “El Tete”, is a young bailaor (flamenco dancer) born in Badalona in the bosom of a gypsy family and who, despite his youth, has earned his place in the field of flamenco dancing. El Yiyo Fernández’s brother, through his strength and elegance, demonstrates a great artistic maturity in each performance, which has helped to obtain great criticism from flamenco fans and professionals. Among the references and influences Ricardo Fernández has grown up with are Joaquín Cortés, José Maya, Farruquito and his brother El Yiyo.
Sara Barrero is a dancer with a great and valuable career as a flamenco artist in Barcelona. Sara Barrero began her career at the age of 16 and toured numerous national and international festivals throughout her high experience, such as flamenco festivals in Paris, Marseille, Lyon and Nimes in France and the US Flamenco Festival, among many others. In addition, she has shared the stage with artists such as Belén Maya, Fernando Terremoto or Eva La Yerbabuena among many others.
Davinia Jaén began her career with 14 years in Jerez. Shortly afterwards she moved to Seville to continue her flamenco training, which began with Juan Parrilla, with artists such as José de La Tomasa, Paco Taranto, José Galván or Carmen Ledesma among others. She also studied flamenco singing with Cristina Heeren and has performed in numerous festivals and theatres all over the world such as the Festival de Jerez, Bienal de Flamenco de Málaga, Bienal de Flamenco de Suiza, Festival Cervantino de Guanajuato in Mexico or the Salón Internacional de la Guitarra de Pittsburg in the United States.
