Jesús Carmona, who has not yet been able to present his company in Catalonia, is an artist who can be found in the programmes of Tablao Flamenco Cordobes in the clear commitment of this artistic space to the great Catalan values and the most international and critically recognised flamenco. The Barcelona-born dancer, who has been supported by Tablao Flamenco Cordobes since his professional beginnings, has been on these boards every year since his first performance in 2007 and always returns to the stage of his homeland once or twice a year in the middle of his international tours. The Catalan dancer returns to Tablao Flamenco Cordobes after his last visit in July and after presenting his show with his own company on an international tour. Recent dates include performances in places all over the world such as Dubai, China, London, Manchester, Boston, New York and Portland. In addition, in April 2018 he presented the show ‘AMATØR’.

Tablao Flamenco Cordobes
Founded in 1970 by a family of artists (Luis Adame and Irene Alba), Tablao Flamenco Cordobes was characterised from the beginning by the high quality of its artists (Camarón de la Isla, Farruco, Tomatito or Bambino are just a few of the names that passed through the stage of La Rambla during these early years). Tablao Flamenco Cordobes has become a reference point for flamenco culture in Barcelona. Both artists and amateurs know the level of their tablas and nowadays it is one of the epicentres 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 the year 2020.
