In October 2010, CRN Productions organized a Flamenco Roots Tour which travelled to four different cities in India with the collaboration of HE, Ion de la Riva, Ambassador of Spain, New Delhi.
The performance started off with traditional Flamenco music and dance from Madrid, with Agustin Carbonell, El Bola, setting the tone for the evening on flamenco guitar and vocals. The flamenco dancers accompanied by their musical counterparts were powerful and graceful as they took main stage and carried the audience into a different world. For the second half of the show, El Bola introduced a group of young Langas, typical Rajasthani Folk musicians, and a magical fusion of music was created between the two groups of gypsies. For the finale, a Kalbelia dancer performed to the flamenco rhythms of the cajon and guitar while the Spanish dancers clapped to the beat, and finally joined her for the last dance.
The tour had a successful start at RIFF (Rajasthani International Folk Festival) in the wonderful atmosphere of the Mehrangarh Fort. The next destination was New Delhi, with a performance at Kamani Auditorium; as well as a private performance at the Spanish Ambassador’s residence in honour of their National Day. Bangalore was their third stop, performing at the beautiful Windsor Manor and the tour concluded in Mumbai at the National Centre for Performing Arts (NCPA).
These videos and photographs demonstrate some highlights of the tour.
