A night of encounter between flamenco and jazz. A fascinating crossroads that develops in its purest expression, with the dance of El Farru and the sounds explored by Michel Camilo and Tomatito, who deviate to the lyricism of the Concierto de Aranjuez by maestro Rodrigo.
Dominican Latin jazz pianist Michel Camilo and Almeria-born flamenco guitarist José Fernández Torres, Tomatito, met for the first time at the Palau de la Música Catalana in Barcelona, and what then seemed like a passing fancy turned into a solid collaboration that yielded three albums: Spain (2000), Spain Again (2006) and Spain Forever (2016). No wonder, because Camilo was also passionate about flamenco, and Tomatito, about jazz. And both have shaped a fascinating meeting point between their two universes, which has even given as to reinterpret the famous Concierto de Aranjuez by Joaquín Rodrigo, the main reason for his visit to Noches del Botánico.
Antonio Fernández Montoya, better known as Farru, is a dancer from Seville, son of the cantaor Juan "El Moreno" and the bailaora "La Farruca", as well as brother of the bailaor Farruquito and grandson of Farruco, who has performed his footwork in shows all over the world. Internationally renowned, he has collaborated, with shows like Al natural (2007), in tours of Beyoncé, Marc Anthony or Paulina Rubio, and Madonna became infatuated with his dancing at a private party for his birthday, for which he had his services.
