The Flamenco Express voyage of discovery lands another cargo of flamenco talent in the form of this month's guests Victor Fernández, and master of gypsy song Antonio el Pola - both masters of technique and spirit. Plus 'sizzling soloist' La Joaquina, and guitar virtuoso Chris Clavo.

****** Victor Fernández ******

The talents of this incredibly versatile dancer were recognised by major international artists from the start. In his short career he has performed with legends such as Rafaela Carrasco, Javier Latorre, Rafael Aguilar, Juanjo Linares, Eva Yerbabuena, Farruquito, Isabel Bayón, Rafaela Carrasco, Christine Tanguay, Rafaela Carrasco, and Javier Latorre.

He toured China with the Ballet Flamenco de Madrid, and is part of Rafael Aguilar Dance Company, performing in major theaters in Germany, China and Taiwan, Dresden and Shanghai, and is at the forefront of modern flamenco choreography.

****** Antonio el Pola ******

Known for over twenty years as a formidably talented singer dedicated to the purest flamenco, Antonio El Pola has grown to fill the greatest stages of the world, performing with legends such as Paco de Lucia, Juan El Camas, Concha Vargas, Antonio Moya, Juan Castor, Juana Amaya, Javier Cruz, Joselito Fernandez, Soraya Clavijo, Miguel "El Funi," Manuel de Anustias, José de la Buena, Guillermo Mansano, Maria Pena, Jesus de la Frasquita, brothers Paco and Juan del Gastor, Luis Peña, and Javier Heredia. To name but a few.

****** La Joaquina ******

Founder member, choreographer and director of Flamenco Express. She has worked with Christina Hoyos, Paco Peña and others in Madrid, Tokyo, New York, Montreal, Toronto, Paris and throughout Europe.

Recent Collaborations 'Spaces in Between' 2007 with Athina Valha and Candoco. Principle soloist 'Splinter In The Flesh' with the Hellenic National Dance Company at the Athens Megaron

"Leading the dancers, La Joaquina, tiny, urgent and intense, explored a vast emotional vocabulary, and juxtaposed vulnerability and tenderness with violence and aggression. Her feet rattle off tempestuous beats, her sinewy arms snake angrily and her taut body is totally driven by her feelings. Wild and untameable, there is certainly no empty prettiness in her dance. - Emma Manning. The Stage

****** Chris Clavo ******

A founder member and musical director of Flamenco Express, he began playing the guitar at fourteen and studied with flamenco maestros Carlos Heredia, Diego Amaya and Pepe Justicia. He has performed throughout Britain and Europe with Flamenco Express, with flamenco jazz virtuoso Eduardo Niebla and Iraqi pop sensation Jassim.

"Two amazing guitar solos from Chris Clavo and Jesus Alvarez made string instruments sing with impossible precision." - Staffordshire Post.

Reviews:
This feisty company delivers the finest in flamenco, plus sizzling soloist La Joaquina - Time Out
Forget the sterile, regimented flamenco so often served up to tourists: this was the real thing, and to say that it packed a punch is an understatement -
South Wales Evening Post
Delighted the audience, who rewarded them with rapturous applause and encores. - Dance Europe
An unforgettable evening. - Anglo Spanish Journal
