Jorge Bravo –
Few acoustic guitarists in Europe can compose and play with such personality and technical skill as Jorge Bravo.
Born in Santiago de Chile in 1973 and based in UK since 2005, he works actively as a concert guitarist, composer, producer and teacher. He has a unique style which demonstrates a wide range of influences from classical and flamenco to gypsy jazz and Latin American styles.
Jorge has played in prestigious venues around the UK such as the Royal Albert Hall, Queen Elizabeth Hall and Womad festival. In June 2006 his talents were internationally recognised when he won a first prize at the ‘Nino Ricardo International Guitar Competition’ held in Murcia, Spain.
Carlos Ortero –
Juan Carlos Ortero graduated with a BA (Hons) in Fine Art specialising in producing conceptual video sound and performance, however his main artistic output for the past two decades has been as a flamenco dancer and choreographer.
In 2004 Juan Carlos joined the LAmatDance Contemporary Dance Company where he found strong affinities between flamenco practice and the contemporary dance world, and in 2008 he joined The Royal Opera House Creative Partnerships scheme and received intensive training in designing and delivering ambitious cross curricular arts projects in schools.
Over the last 5 years Juan Carlos’ practice has edged more towards experimental theatre, including as a core deviser and performer in Don Quijote and more recently Republica, a flamenco/punk piece which toured in 2017.
Carolina Esteves –
Born into a Spanish family in Buenos Aires, Carolina has an extensive background in all aspects of dance, from traditional tablao flamenco to contemporary dance and street experimental flamenco.
In Madrid Carolina performed regularly with the flamenco fusion band ‘Siete a contra’ who made a great impact on the local flamenco scene of the late 1990s, and worked on various physical theatre projects with choreographer and dancer Camille Hanson (Mujeres en movimiento, Mujeres y me).
Carolina is now teaching and performing regularly in London with: ‘Sumaya Flamenco’.
