Guitarist and composer Gerardo Nuñez is recognised as one of the world’s biggest stars of Flamenco and his wife Carmen Cortés is one of Spain’s most distinguished dancers & choreographers. They have collaborated on many productions and tonight’s show is one of incredible intensity, passion and profound authenticity.
They are supported by legendary percussionist Cepillo, outstanding bassist Pablo Martin and astonishing singer of Romani origin Antonio Carbonell.
Born in Jerez de la Frontera (Andalucia, Spain), Gerardo is one of the outstanding exponents of the Flamenco Nuevo which is a fusion of different musical genres and styles which has led to a remarkable number of collaborations with artists of the most diverse genres including classical singer Plácido Domingo, pop star Julio Iglesias, new age harpist Andreas Vollenweider, Spanish rock band Mecano and jazz saxophonist Michael Brecker.
