Fin de Fiesta Flamenco is a vibrant music and dance ensemble comprised of award winning artists from Canada, France and Cuba. Their performances takes audiences on a thrilling journey, from flamenco’s traditional roots in the music and culture of southern Spain, all the way to its contemporary forms. Ancient rhythms meet avant-garde ideas and converge in an explosion of staccato guitar and percussive footwork.
Based in Spain, Fin de Fiesta brings together flamenco dance, song, guitar, flute, and percussion in an explosive, stage-ready celebration of this passionate Andalusian art form. The group regularly tours in Europe and North America(outdoor festival venues and theatres – full performance history here). Their self-titled debut album, Fin de Fiesta, was released in December 2016. This is their sixth year together.
