The Artists Unveiled
Tabanko Flamenko represents authentic flamenco artistry and is a new project produced by Spanish/ Australian flamenco dancer, Deya Miranda Giner, who has recently returned back to Australia from Spain, after spending over 20 years away - studying, living and working as a professional flamenco dancer.
Her incredible journey in the land of flamenco allowed her to cross paths with Paco Lara (Spanish maestro of the flamenco guitar) from Jerez de la Frontera , in Southern Spain. Now, they live in NSW’s Hunter Valley, performing and promoting this unique art form and way of life they so passionately love, to the Australian community.
The group also includes Australian flamenco artists: Zoe Vélez, Cante (Vocal) and Elena Vargas, Dancer and Palmas ( hand clapper in charge of rhytm), who is making her come back to the stage. The both artists are of Spanish heritage and hold a high professional regard in the Australian flamenco scene.
The name “Tabanko Flamenko” was inspired by the traditional name of the sherry wine bars (tabancos) of Jerez de la Frontera, Andalusia, which is a cradle city of flamenco, where flamenco originated and where artists have performed for centuries creating and cultivating their very own, unique style.
Tabanko Flamenko's show is a pure and raw emotion that captivates and enchants the audience, taking them back in time and place, back to the origin of flamenco, to Spain. It truly is a soul moving performance.
