Welcome to our monthly flamenco night featuring a varied line-up of some of London’s finest musicians, singers and dancers.

Araceli García

Born in Cartagena (Murcia), Araceli has studied classical ballet and contemporary dance but her passion is firmly in Flamenco. 

‘La Cartagenera’ has performed in iconic venues including Ronnie Scott’s and Peacock Theatre. She also had the privilege of choreographing the theatre production “Blood Weeding” in Liverpool as part of the European Capital of Culture Festival. 
Her experience working as a choreographer, dance teacher and dancer for a variety of companies across the UK has enabled her develop unique stagecraft and her own style to interact with audience.

Monica García became passionately involved in flamenco at an early age, growing up in “Frailes” a small village at the south of the town of Jaen and really close to Granada, where the best olive oil in the world and the Andalusian zephyr from their mountains nurtured her voice.

Mónica was a prominent student at “Locura Flamenca” academy, later becoming involved in traditional and modern dance and music groups, that’s how, albeit her young age, this soulful singer will surprise and delight flamenco aficionados and neophytes alike.

Adrián Solá (Barcelona 1982) trained as a flamenco guitarist and studied music theory and flute at the School of modern music in Badalona. He furthered his development attending master classes with guitar virtuosos Zsolt Hernandi and Rafael Canizares.

Since moving to the U.K he has become a much sought-after accompanist, working regularly with established London based flamenco dancers and singers.

In an ensemble or as a soloist Adrián is a versatile and adaptable musician, he plays flamenco master pieces as well as his own compositions with gusto. He has exceptional stage presence and a capacity to blend musical styles, ensuring a consistent production of high quality performances.
