17.30 - 20.00 A Taste of Flamenco
An exciting new concept in which we invite you for a special flamenco meal for a taste of flamenco music and cuisine. While enjoying a drink and a bite to eat, professional musicians will teach you the basic ingredients of flamenco: (handclapping), jaleos (cheering), nudillos (drumming rhythms on a table top) and of course a little cante (singing). This is the way to 'taste' flamenco like you would in Andalusia.
Venue Volkshotel: Canvas / Entrance €17,50 (2 course excl drinks)

20.00-21.30 Jam session BvR Flamenco-jazz 6tet
An explosive performance by saxofonist Bernard van Rossum and his Flamenco 6tet. In his compositions he connects jazz to Flamenco what results in colorful orchestrations and a dynamic sound.
