The Flamenco MassOrganised by: Esplanade - Theatres on the Bay
Performed by: Flamenco Sin Fronteras
The power of flamenco meets the beauty of the classical voice. Misa Flamenca combines Catholic high mass chants—sung by a classical choir—with appropriate songs of the flamenco repertoire in a cadenza-like style. The guitar melds both aspects together as dance becomes an extended movement of the written word. Presented in this performance are three parts:
The Kyrie is respectful and serious, matched by the Caña, which is an old, deep tune reminiscent of Gregorian chants.
The Credo is joined by the Siguiriya, a rhythm that explores deep-rooted faith and indestructible conviction.
The finale comes in the form of Agnus Dei, which is complemented by Solea por Bulerias and Alegrias, bringing a vibrant and colourful culmination to this artistic union.
