Event Info



Chicago Flamenco Festival 2011 is presented in collaboration with Arte y Vida Chicago, the City of Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs, the Old Town School of Folk Music, and the Flamenco Arts Center.

During the Flamenco Festival 2011, some of Spain’s most popular and up-and-coming flamenco stars fill Chicago with music, dance performances, and workshops. Taking place in many venues around the city, the festival celebrates this time-honored, Andalusian art. This year’s festival pays a special tribute to a legend that has left us, a singer who has made an extraordinary contribution to the world of flamenco: Enrique Morente. Morente brought an element of the divine to the art of flamenco and transformed it into a passionate experience for all five senses.
