Festival Flamenco Alburquerque 36 presents Israel Galván y Compañía in “La Edad de Oro.”
In 2005 Israel Galván was awarded the National Dance Award, Creation section, by the Culture Department of the Spanish Government. In 2012 he was honoured with the New York Bessie Performance Award for an Outstanding Production and with the Fine Arts Medal awarded by the Council of Ministers of Spanish Governme
One of the world’s most celebrated and intriguing artists, Israel Galván returns to Festival Flamenco Alburquerque with La Edad de Oro.
Accompanied by the legendary Lagos brothers, singer David Lagos and guitarist Alfredo Lagos, Galván evokes the creativity, quality, and purity of flamenco’s Golden Age, giving audiences a window into flamenco at its peak.
In flamenco, as in all arts, historians, specialists and critics progressively defined the reference periods. The period that they called “La Edad de Oro,” or “The Golden Age,” of Flamenco corresponds to a period running from the end of the 19th century to the 30’s of the 20th.
From the concert with David Lagos, a singer who treasures with care the songs from golden ages, and Alfredo Lagos, a guitarist from Jerez — birth town of flamenco — Israel Galván attaches himself to references tracking the normal approaches and pushes away “age.” He profits just from the “gold,” the gold in the present day, there just under our eyes, in front of our senses.
