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 Gabriel González Tapia: 

Gabriel González Tapia, a flamenco guitarist from Madrid, began playing at 14. He holds a music bachelor's degree from the Rafael Orozco Superior Conservatory of Music in Córdoba and a Master's in Management and Leadership of Cultural Projects from Rey Juan Carlos University in Madrid. His initial training was at the Casa Patas Foundation and the “Cañorroto” school in Madrid, and he's pursuing Flamencology at the University of Córdoba (UCO).

He's studied under esteemed flamenco guitarists such as José Manuel Montoya, Aquilino Jiménez “El Entri”, José Jiménez “El Viejín”, and others. González performs professionally in Madrid and Andalucía, gracing stages like “Círculo de Bellas Artes” and many renowned flamenco tablaos.

With 16 years in the field, his international experience includes performances with Esperanza Fernández in New York, tours in China and Saudi Arabia, and winning 3rd Prize at the Cristina Heeren Foundation contest in Seville for guitar accompaniment. He partners artistically with singer María López and is based in Seville.

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.
