Sergio de Lope and his ensemble are part of the new generation of creative flamenco makers, building veritable bridges between flamenco and jazz. Awarded Best Flamenco Instrumentalist at the 2017 Festival de la Unión, Sergio “sings” flamenco with his flute and his saxophone and transforms expressive “flamenco soul” into jazzy compositions. A collaborator with flamenco stars such as Farruquito, Sergio makes his New York debut with Ser de luz, a piece that expresses the emotive power of flamenco in all its aspects. Accompaniment is provided by "El Mati" (voice), David Caro (guitar), Juanfe Pérez (bass), Javier Rabadán (percussion), and Sonia Olla (dance).
This concert is co-presented by Flamenco Festival, Instituto Cervantes and AIE- Sociedad de Artistas Intérpretes o Ejecutantes de España. Flamenco Festival NY is additionally supported by the Government of Andalusia.
