The "researchers" of flamenco offer a recital full of flamenco (07/08/2018)

The Union, August 6.

Both Contreras and Arcángel have been great scholars and researchers of flamenco.

It is worth remembering that Álora conquered the jury, the public of La Unión and the Mining Lamp in 2016 thanks to their inquiries and studies about the Cantos Mineros.

For his part, Arcángel has recently been appointed director of the Flamenco Chair of the University of Córdoba, a recognition of his years of preparation and study of flamenco and how to make it grow to take it to new heights.

He began the Huelva demonstrating in the Cathedral of Cante his constant evolution.

That which has led him to be a different Archangel but with the same root of that Archangel who came to the Old Public Market three years ago.

Arcángel brought to La Unión his echo and his way of understanding flamenco singing where a deep knowledge and respect for the root jondas coexist naturally with an incessant interest in finding new development paths for flamenco art.

It is that delicate and beautiful line that separates the tradition and the avant-garde where the Huelva-born cantaor's conception of art resides.

Between fandangos, soleás and other Andalusian styles enlivened by the subtleties of the chorus of Bulgarian voices, the one from Huelva was arriving little by little into the heart of the audience.

The cantaor wanted "with this work to demonstrate a site as respectful as La Unión that it is possible to establish a dialogue between the ancestral Bulgarian culture and flamenco" Arcángel asked the audience that "if they were having fun, that's what their show I intended. "

The "Este del Cante" has shown in the Cathedral that Arcángel is a composer and promoter of flamenco.

Capable of joining the ends of the old continent to seat chair that the root has many roads to go and many waters to feed but without losing the purest sense.

The chorus of Bulgarian voices dazzled the respectable when he heard the famous "Legend of the Wind" by Camarón interpreted by these soft and syrupy voices that put the sweet tone to the salty voice of Arcángel.

A sublime moment that delighted the most demanding palates of the Union and conquered the less understood.

The last joy with her was Arcángel and her chorus of Bulgarian voices sung a capella put the audience standing ovation to the singer who sat chair in the Old Public Market of La Union.


Antonia Contreras, happens to be is at the moment, one of the flamenco artists of greater national and international projection.

His effort is based on his artistic ability, the solidity of extensive knowledge, the originality of his lyrics, mostly unpublished and the richness of his emotive expressiveness of a land as flamenco as Álora, the cradle of the malagueña.

A La Unión brought his new work "A la luz de tu cante" his particular tribute to the memories of his childhood in which he listened in the background to the Niña de la Puebla, the cantaora that thanks to the technologies appeared in the tables of the Old Public Market

His work was adorned by a large number of those back and forth cantes that are in danger of extinction if they are not cared for and pampered.

In addition to that sticks, that only a few, dare for their difficulty as the Serrana with which Contreras demonstrated the virtues of his strong and powerful voice.

A complicated cante, that few cantaores dare, but with which the malacitana left, conquered and connected with the audience that filled with applause the moments of pause that the cantaora did.

After that demonstration of virtues, came sevillanas and bulerías that cheered the spirit of the respectable that they enjoyed with the bailaora who accompanied Antonia Contreras.

With the Cantiñas de Huelva, the Seguriyas or the Colombian the malagueña had the irreducible consistency of those who make themselves and have a constant attitude of learning what has allowed them, today to become an artist with their own style, elegant in the forms and deep in the expression.

Antonia Contreras put the colophon with a guajira interpreted with passion and dedicated "to this town that has given me so much and that I have so much affection" An end of party that closed a night of investigators of the deep.

At the gala were the Cultural Counselor of the Embassy of Mexico in Spain, Susana Pliego Quijano, the Delegate of the Government in the Region of Murcia, Diego Conesa, and the Minister of Culture and Tourism, Miriam Guardiola.

In the middle of the gala, Mexico received the Catedral del Cante award for its diffusion of flamenco.
