The power and beauty of flamenco dance and guitar collide in a sensual explosion of movement, rhythm and melody.

Hosted by the USQ Academic Services Division.

A collaboration from DaLeCaña Flamenco Company with singer El Brujo de Madrid (Spain) and Australian guitarist Gerard Mapstone is passion, heat and virtuosic performance distilled down to its very essence.

Gerard Mapstone has toured the globe, working alongside the very best in world music, carving out a dazzling reputation as an instrumental guitarist blending flamenco with Arabic, Indian and Cuban music.

DaLecaña Flamenco Company is one of Australia’s leading contemporary flamenco groups, featuring some of the best world music artists and flamenco dancers from across Australia and Spain.

“This tune filled the room. It is hard to do it justice with merely words, but it was a tune of energy, of light and of heat. The crescendos and flurry of Mapstone’s fingers on the strings captured my attention completely and I was lost. I was in Spain. I was swimming IN a glass of sangria… I couldn’t escape from this trance. Why wasn’t there a health warning on the ticket for this show?

The violinist, Shenzo Gregorio, started to affect his instrument until it let out a wail of emotion causing every mouth in the theatre to drop. It was simply beautiful, eerie, emotional and exhaustive. This vibrant beauty continued to romance the stage… it was superb.” - Chandra Clements, Winner of the 2013 Telstra, Marie Claire Young Business Woman of the Year Award

A reception in the USQ Arts Gallery will follow the recital – refreshments will be served.
