FlamencoNova *** (3 stars)

August 17, 2019

FlamencoNova produced by Tuflamenco at theSpace Triplex is a genuine excursion into the world of Flamenco and Bossa Nova.  In the caldron that is Triplex in Hill Place (British Theatre Guide called it the hottest venue at the Fringe) to a degree added to the atmosphere of what is a great introduction to the Brazilian culture.

 

With singers Sergio Prazeres, Danielo Olivera and Inmaculada Montero we capture the intensity of expression of the language and range and at times flamenco dancer Mayte Beltran adds to the visuals on a tiny stage but dominating the scene. The overall effect is stunning with multi-guitarists strumming, picking and mesmerising with hands a blur.

 

Additional sax by Nick Gould is a bonus and adds to the Bossa Nova but I was left begging at the omission of that most iconic of pieces (Girl From Ipanema) given the talent and instruments on stage and just a month after the death of Brazilian guitarist and composer João Gilberto.
