AURORA 

Fresh Interpretation of Flamenco Music & Dance 

(click here to watch the title video) 

Aurora's fresh interpretations of the songs of Manuel de Falla, Federico García Lorca and Felip Pedrell, fuse jazz, rock and roll, and flamenco with energy and skill, driven by pianist Max Villavecchia, electric bassist Javier Garrabella and drummer Joan Carles Marí, fronted by the voice of acclaimed young cantaor (Flamenco singer) Pere Martinez and the dynamic dance of Jose Manuel Álvarez.

The group emerged from Barcelona's professionally-driven Taller de Músics Institute. What began as a one-off project quickly gathered momentum, turning into an ongoing exploratory journey into new frontiers of flamenco. Their self-titled debut album was named as one of the ten best Flamenco albums of 2017 by Flamenca y Más magazine, and has spawned invitations to festivals in Hungary, Canada and across Spain. Aurora now find themselves at the vanguard of a new generation of contemporary flamenco innovators, evoking a sense of perpetual modernity within the bullseye of a traditional art form.
