The 3rd annual Edmonton Flamenco Festival

April 12 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

The 3rd annual Edmonton Flamenco Festival presents: Tierra Flamenca

Direct from Spain, world-renowned flamenco artists, dancer and choreographer Sonia Olla and singer Ismael Fernández perform with their company in a fiery evening of traditional Spanish flamenco song, dance, and guitar.

Hailed by The New York Times as “a furnace of earthy sensuality”, Sonia Olla was born and raised in Barcelona when she earned a degree in Spanish Dance and Flamenco at the esteemed “Instituto de Teatro y Danza” in Barcelona.

Described by The Washington Post as the “most charismatic performer” and a “connection to the Gypsy source”, Ismael Fernández was born in Seville. Of Gypsy descent, he grew up performing in flamenco festivals throughout the world with his internationally renowned family, “La Familia Fernández”.

Partners on and off the stage, Sonia and Ismael have also worked with pop icon Madonna in preparation for her “Rebel Heart Tour” (2015-2016) and Ricky Martin for his recent Las Vegas Show (2017).

Ismael was a featured artist at the first Edmonton Flamenco Festival in 2017. We are thrilled to have him back, this time with his wife and their guests, featuring:

Sonia Olla – dancer
Ismael Fernández – singer
Pol Vaquero – dancer
Jonathan Reyes Jiménez – singer
Víctor Márquez “El Tomate” – guitarist
