Las Minas Puerto Flamenco
Thirteen artists on stage
International tour, 2015-2017
Chicago, Johannesburg, Sydney, Melbourne, Mexico, Toronto
Minas Puerto Flamenco offers a show in which the artists demonstrate, during over 100 minutes, their talents that have earned them various awards, each one in their specialty, at the International Festival Cante de las Minas. There are thirteen artists on stage, each of whom is a leading figure in his/her field.
This show, which is full of sensitivity and scenery, reviews the history of flamenco while travelling through the ports of the world, interacting with many different beats such as habaneras, colombianas, rondeñas, vidalitas, milongas or guajiras, which mix and merge with flamenco soleás, tanguillos, alegrías and bulerías .
With almost sixty years of history, the International Festival of Cante de las Minas is one of the most important events in the world of Flamenco, resulting from sound work and high artistic standards. In 2014, the festival was awarded the Gold Medal for Merit in Fine Arts and it represents the only flamenco Festival which officially qualifies as Marca España.

"Las Minas Puerto Flamenco is an amazing show" From the Port Authority of Motril we had the opportunity to attend to this amazing show, with hundreds of other spectators who also enjoyed the show’s strength and art. It perfectly shows how flamenco has been historically linked to the life of those who work and live around the ports. A special attention should be drawn to the sensitivity of the artists who offer pure art throughout the whole show, a guarantee of Festival de las Minas. Vibrant and exciting, it is undoubtedly a unique opportunity to enjoy the best flamenco. As president of Port Authority, it has been a pleasure to collaborate in hosting this event and I would like to thank the magnificent organization of a show that cannot be missed.

"Las Minas Puerto Flamenco is a brilliant and very elegant show which thrills flamenco funs and will enthral first time-comers to a flamenco show ". Greetings,
President of the Port Authority of Cartagena - Antonio Sevilla
The reason for the Port Authority to collaborate with the event is fully justified by the unquestionable relationship that ports have always had with music; they have been home and have brought forth many artists of all kinds as well as being exceptional providers of cultural dissemination. "Las Minas Puerto Flamenco is undoubtedly a show not to be missed for many reasons that can be summed up in the enjoyment of all the senses, turning them into art". I hope the tour is a success. A big hug,
Secretary General of the Regional Ministry of Culture and Spokesperson of the Autonomous Community of the Region of Murcia - José Vicente Albaladejo
