As part of the festivities the organisers arranged a special treat for all the guests after the Gala Dinner – a performance by the renowned Flamenco singer Pepe Luis Carmona Habichuela and his lovely wife, Flamenco dancer Antonia Heredia. Pepe Luis sang a selection of songs from his latest CD, ‘La Vida Llega’, and Antonia performed an exciting Flamenco dance. Following Pepe’s performance, the popular band Los Gin Tonic provided music for dancing followed by a disco late into the night.
We are delighted to announce that Pepe Luis is to be our Patron; he comes from a famous flamenco family which includes Antonio Carmona, Josemi Carmona and Carlos Carmona. All 4 cousins are highly respected international musicians. Of course we are hoping that, through this new connection, Acompalia supporters will be able enjoy a privileged entry to the highest level of the art of flamenco at future events. Pepe Luis’ wife, Antonia Heredia, is a flamenco dancer in Granada’s Sacramonte district and is also keen to support our project.
