Jorge Miguel

Flamenco is one of the oldest forms of world music inhabiting the contemporary performing arts- passionate, fatalistic music that has deep roots in Andaluca in southern Spain. It has three key elements- the guitar or toque, the song or cante and the dance or baile. Jorge Miguels mission is to offer the flamenco tradition through the fingers, voice and feet of an ensemble committed to its authentic spirit. Jorge Miguel is a Spanish Canadian guitarist and composer from Toronto. His family comes from Cadiz, a city in the flamenco heartland and he has spent much time living and studying there. Flamenco is best learned from the elders and Jorges teachers included some of the best- Carlos del Rio in Madrid, Augustin Bola Carbonell in Seville and other veterans.
