Description

Enjoy some authentic flamenco passion in our ever-popular show. Bursting with raw emotion and explosive rhythms, this is a fiesta of pure dance, music and intensity that brings the best of a real Andalucian night. Just like a traditional Spanish penya, you don't watch but experience the fiery guitar and percussive dancing, and get carried away on wave after wave of tragic and joyous vocals. Featuring some top talents brought in directly from Spain, this show brings a modern twist to the classic flamenco tradition. 'Powerful dance, frenetic guitar, pulsating rhythms' ***** (ThreeWeeks).

Very captivating performances by very passionate and skilled musicians, singer and dancers. The 1 hour performance seemed like 15 minutes.

I would highly recommend seeing their show and take the opportunity to witness Spanish and Cuban cultural theatrical excellence.

Just estupendo. So much commitment from all the musicians and dancers. The guest flute was fabulous too. Five stars plus.

A show with real duende! Fantastic dancers, guitarist, singer and cajon player - all incredibly talented bring the real deal to Edinburgh. A brilliant hour of flamenco in all its essence and glory. Highly recommended for all those who love dance and culture, whether you are on your own, with friends or with your family.

A glass of fino and within minutes of the start I was back in my belovéd Cádiz and wondering why I ever moved to Scotland. Not quite the same as a sultry madrugada by the Atlantic at Peña Juanito Vilar, but in terms of the performers, every bit as good, and as intense as only flamenco song and dance can be. ¡Estupendo!
When's the next flight to Sevilla?

Absolutely fantastic Flamenco show both music and dance were totally enthralling. The venue itself is genuinely friendly. A tapa with every drink ordered. A trip back to sunny Spain.

AMAZING and AUTHENTIC flamenco show! The artists are incredibly talented and are just amazing to watch! The intimate venue is the perfect setting for the show and the staff are very welcoming and kind. The whole experience from start to finish was great! I will be returning to see more of their shows and definitely recommend it! Also recommend to go to the tapas bar too! Food is incredible, prepared by talented chefs and flavours instantly take you back to spain!

You must see this. Words can't describe the experience, it has to be experienced first hand. All the performers, singer, drummer, guitarist, dancers are superb: in combination they are sublime. Please go to this show.

By far my favourite show out of all the ones I saw this year! My heart was racing the whole time. The music and dancing were so powerful and couldn’t get more authentic. YOU CANT MISS THIS! My god.. the singer! The guitarist! The chemistry between all the performers! Great intimate venue. I recommend sitting right up at the front and having tapas and wine afterwards. The food and wine are also outstanding and authentic. I can’t wait for my next chance to go there again.

Loved every minute of this pulse racing show on Friday 9/8. Dancing, music and the singing...oh the singing! Authentic Flamenco with a Gypsy King-style music. A great group. A must see!

Intimate venue with a true flavour of authentic flamenco. As good as anything we've seen on several trips to Seville and around Spain.

A mesmerising and stimulating cultural experience. The performers enjoyment of their art is infectious and the hour of intensely passionate dance, music and storytelling was more than worth the short walk! If you want to be transported to Spain - look no further than Alba flamenca.

Alba Flamenca, in a tiny venue on East Crosscauseway, is Acapella at its finest with five artists making music together – whether it is by the voice, guitar or feet. Over five different songs there is live singing from Alvaro Romero, guitar from Socrates Mastrodimos and drumming from Pedro Morote...
