Flamenco Express delivers another cargo of raw, heartwrenching flamenco – with sizzling soloist La Joaquina, guitar virtuoso Chris Clavo, the custodian of flamenco vocal heritage Antonio el Pola, plus the highly-sought elemental power and grace of Emilio Ochando. Emilio is a phenomenon from the Ballet Nacional de España and Ballet Nacional de Cuba who took London by storm last year. An acknowledged international artist in constant demand, he has collaborated with Miguel Ángel Rojas, Carlos Rodríguez, Domingo Ortega, Angel Rojas and Carlos Rodrigue among many others.
