Madrid, May 13 (EFE) .- After more than a year closed by the pademic, the Cardamomo room, a meeting point for artists and flamenco scholars for 27 years, reopens its doors this afternoon with “El Yiyo”, a Charismatic dancer who exudes energy, passion and sensitivity.
In these difficult times of the pandemic “we want to maintain a daily program, with the purpose of bringing the most relevant figures of the genre to Madrid and offering the public the privilege of seeing the best flamenco live today,” he explained this Thursday in a note Ivana Portoles, owner of the mythical flamenco tablao.
On the stage of the Cardamomo room, recognized as Cultural Heritage of the city of Madrid, Miguel Fernández Ribas “El Yiyo”, Pastora Galván and Farruquito will perform during the month of May.
Since its origins in 1994, in this famous tablao it has been common to meet up-and-coming youngsters who felt Cardamomo as the “rehearsal room for their new musical concerns and where, later on, they have once again presented themselves as renowned professionals”, recalls Portoles.
Cardamomo, the nerve center of flamenco in the capital of Spain, has become a symbol of love for this Art and a reference recognized by greats such as Joaquín Cortés, Enrique Morente, Estrella Morente, Jorge Pardo, Antonio Carmona, Ramón El Portugués, Tomatito or Raimundo Amador, among others.
After a year subjected to extreme tension, Miguel Fernández Ribas, “El Yiyo” (Badalona 1996), will perform from May 13 to 16.
Pastora Galván, (Seville, 1980), who has shared the stage with figures such as Eva la Yerbabuena, Arcángel, Carmen Linares, Miguel Poveda, Duquende, Joaquín Grilo, María Pagés or La Susi, among others, will perform on May 23. And Juan Manuel Fernández Montoya “Farruquito”, (Seville, 1982) will perform on the 29th and 30th of the same month.
