About Cristina Candela:

Since 2007, I have been working as a flamenco dancer. My experience spans a variety of settings, including tablaos like El Patio Andaluz in Barcelona, and international tours in Malaysia and Singapore with Chalachi. I've contributed to companies such as Maria Carrasco Cia and Apuchelando Cia in multiple roles: dancing, choreographing, and producing.

I've also engaged in fusion projects, notably with Anlage Cia in Granada, and in artistic-educational initiatives. For instance, I served as part of the ambassador group for the "Voices of Tomorrow" project under the Yehudi Menuhin Foundation.

My involvement in the arts extends to film. I've acted, danced, and worked in production for several short and independent films.

My interests encompass all aspects of performing and audiovisual arts. I'm as fascinated with the spotlight as I am with behind-the-scenes work. From a young age, I've been driven by a desire to create - to dance, choreograph, design scenographies. My foremost aim is to express my vision of the world as clearly as possible.

To this day, the words of Pina Bausch echo in my mind: "Dance, dance, otherwise we are lost."

About Jackson Scott: 

Jackson Scott is a guitarist born in Seville to British parents who relocated from London to rural Spain in the 1970s. His music embodies the rich tapestry of these diverse cultures. For the past ten years, Jackson has toured extensively across Europe, the Middle East, and Russia with his Spanish punk band, Mano de Dios. More recently, he has garnered support from a talented ensemble of musicians from South America, France, and the US for his English venture, The Jackson Scott Band, which fuses Latino rhythms with American Traditional Jazz.

Jackson has released a full-length studio album with Mano de Dios and has recently followed up with a solo LP. This latest work was recorded entirely in analog and released exclusively on vinyl. In 2013, he was tasked with creating the soundtrack for Angus McQueen's documentary "Druglord: The Legend of Shorty," which delves into the life of the notorious Mexican drug lord El Chapo. That same year, he initiated a project in Cuba to record Spanish versions of Nat King Cole classics, intending to complete a live album.

Now splitting his time between New York, London, and Seville, Jackson is crafting new material in Spanish for his upcoming album.

About Alfonso Mogaburo Cid: 

Alfonso was born and raised in Sevilla, the heartland of flamenco music. He also had the opportunity of attending the activities of one of the most significant flamenco clubs in Andalusia, the Peña Flamenca Torres-Macarena in Seville. Alfonso has toured extensively throughout the USA, Latin America, Israel and Europe, and has just toured Spain last February of 2018 with the Jazz/Flamenco band the New York Bojaira Project by pianist Jesús Hernández from Granada, Spain.
