José Maya, Juan de Juan and Karime Amaya
José Maya was born in Madrid into a gypsy family of artists, painters, actors and writers. He began his career as a dancer at the age of nine and since then has not stopped growing his artistic career. José Maya has shared the stage and collaborated with international artists such as Ketama, Antonio Canales, Enrique Morente, Tomatito, Güito, Rafael Amargo, Farru, Farruquito and Carmen Cortés, among others, and has opened for world artists such as Beyoncé, Björk and Marc Antonhy. Among the prizes collected throughout his career is the Premio Copa Pavón or Best Dancer in the Choreography Contest of the Teatro Albéniz in Madrid. He also premiered his own show, ‘El velero de las Rosas’, at the Albéniz Theatre in Madrid and at the comedy corral in Alcalá de Henares.
Next to José Maya will be Juan de Juan, a dancer born in Seville and raised in Morón de la Frontera, one of the most flamenco towns in Andalusia and where his fruitful career began. At the age of 7, he began to dance at the Juan Triana academy and, shortly after, he began to receive classes from Juana Amaya. At the age of 16 he joined the Ballet Flamenco de Antonio Canales and ended up becoming the first dancer of the company. Juan de Juan has toured all over the world, including New York, Hong Kong, Paris and Milan
Finally, the great Karime Amaya, a member of the Amaya family and grandniece of “La Capitana” Carmen Amaya, the most famous dancer of all times, will take part along with the dancers. Karime Amaya made her debut at the age of 9 and since then has performed at festivals such as the Albuquerque International Festival in the USA, Quito Flamenco Festival, Mont-de-Marsan Flamenco Art Festival in France, Monterrey Flamenco Art Festival and Jerez Flamenco Festival, among many others.

Tablao Flamenco Cordobes Barcelona
Founded in 1970 by a family of artists (Luis Adame and Irene Alba), Tablao Flamenco Cordobes has been known since its inception for the high quality of its artists (Camarón de la Isla, Farruco, Tomatito and Bambino are just a few of the names that came to the stage of La Rambla during these early years). Tablao Flamenco Cordobes has become a benchmark for flamenco culture in Barcelona. Both artists and amateurs know the level of its boards and today it is one of the epicenters of flamenco. With the celebration of its 40th anniversary in 2010, the Fundación Tablao Flamenco Cordobés was created with the aim of revaluing the foundations of flamenco culture, something that demonstrates the continuous evolution of an artistic space that is already preparing its 50th anniversary for 2020. At the moment, Tablao Flamenco Cordobes is the sixth most reserved attraction in Spain in Tripadvisor.
