I found From India to Triana to be very soulful and presented with great passion. I loved how different forms of dance and music, from different cultures fused beautifully in this presentation. It is striking how similar yet different these forms of art are!

Excellent quality of art offered - dance and music. Totally worth the time, effort and money spent.

An absolutely stunning show! Knowing a little about the roots of flamenco the group of fantastic muscians, singers and dancers meld the different, but related styles with absolute mastery. The show gives an excellent representation of how part of flamenco origins came from India and how it transformed on its travels to Andalusia. The dancers are absolutely captivating, powerful and graceful in their movements. A really must see show for a fantastic cultural experience. *****

This is a simply beautiful show, intertwining music and dance to communicate the interconnectedness of not only the Indian and Flamenco cultures but of the rhythms that connect us all. The performers - both dancers and musicians alike - bring so much soul, talent, and passion to the stage that you cannot help but be mesmerised by the production.

Amazing show!
4 different dancers, with different styles combined together in perfect armony.
And even more: the music! Five musicians, three voices from different continents, five or more different instruments. And the sounds flow and join the dancers in a unique way.

Join this show for a real fusion experience.

I loved it!

Best show to see in the Fringe! A great mix of Indian dance and music with flamingo dance and music. The dancers were amazing and the musicians were fantastic! Can't recommend enough!

From India to Triana swept me off my feet! Being so close and intimate with the performers and musicians I was absolutely enchanted by the graceful and energetic Indian dances. It showcased such talent and a love for the craft!

As the show progressed and moved from India to Tirana, the passion and vigour of flamenco was seductive, enticing and full of energy.
I thoroughly enjoyed it, and Highly recommend it.

What brilliant music, dancing and singing from a very talented group of performers. Fascinating to see the many similarities between classical Indian dance in its various forms, and modern day Flamenco. Comes complete with a very helpful (free) programme to explain the different parts of the show. Don't miss it.

The most beautiful blend of Indian dance and Flamenco, subtlety and passion, tension and flow, rhythm and melody. This show brings out the remarkable similarities between the two styles - the intricate hand gestures, the strong footwork, the complex, syncopated rhythms. But the dances and music are so different too, I was transfixed from start to finish. Great dancers, fantastic musicians.
