We will also work on exercises that help us play better and develop a concept of how to practice correctly. We learn how to analyze a falseta and how to actually play freely and make music. This learning process will help us feel more secure on stage.

In Tres - to be seen on 4, 26 and the 27th of November -
Flamenco Biënnale Nederland asked Tino van der Sman and Arturo Ramón to put together a program for the festival’s 8th edition with their love of the flamenco guitar as its theme. They invited up-and-coming talent Joes Wieggers for the occasion. Like Tino, Joes lives and works in Spain. Strings and styles of three Dutch flamenco guitarists will combine in what promises to be a memorable guitar recital: Guitarra Pura. A warm-blooded night for the enthusiasts!
