A CONVERSATION WITH LOS VOLUBLE
Join radical flamenco collective Los Voluble in a public conversation to discuss their performace Flamenco is not a Crime.
Inspired by the “free party is not a crime” movement, Los Voluble present a proposal in which flamenco and electronics intersect with critical culture and political video remix. Following the path of articulated approaches in previous shows like ‘Raverdial’ or ‘In the name of’, around the party, the common of the remix and the complexity of the collective, Pedro and Benito Jiménez propose a direct approach to the flamenco and its contradistinction: the purism against the avant-garde or experimentation, the attitude towards flamenco aptitude or its parallelism and connection with other musical genres such as Gqom, footwork, experimental dub, grime or reggaeton, among many other stylistic jumps.
Curated and moderated by Daniel Valtueña. Introduced by Laura Turégano.
Los Voluble will DJ the Flamenco Festival closing party at Joe’s Pub at The Public on April 4, 2020. More info and tickets at http://www.flamencofestival.org/en/en-gira/flamenco-is-not-a-crime/
