Made in Jerez

David Lagos, Mercedez Ruíz and Diego de la Margara

Flamenco Biënnale 2017

Along with dancers Diego de la Margara and El Zorri, the old folk art as celebrated on a patio or in the taverna will be brought to life in Stadsschouwburg Utrecht. David Lagos is one of the most authentic singers of his generation. In this performance, he surrounds himself with the best that the town of Jerez has to offer in the way of dance, guitar and singing. The dazzling and elegant movements of bailaora Mercedez Ruíz and the spontaneous popular style of ‘veteran’ Diego de la Margara complement one another beautifully to the music of Alfredo Lagos and Santiago Lara, two leading guitarists of the present.

A top ensemble consisting of a new generation of flamenco artists in a swinging tribute to Jerez de la Frontera, one of the old breeding grounds of flamenco.
