exploration of new frontiers in Flamenco Culture by audiovisual art as narrative support. In essence we could define each performance as a sensory immersion in search of a personal identity with ancestral feelings as a starting point and made towards the depths of oneself.
A journey that begins with the compás as a guideline but defining your destiny with every gesture and nuance to vibrate every emotion … inside a mantra of light and sound.
