Cafe Del Mundo
LS6 Cafe Bar, Leeds
Tuesday 26th February 2019
LS6 is delighted to announce that we will be joined by Café Del Mundo for an exclusive performance on their debut UK tour.
Café Del Mundo are Germany's most prolific flamenco guitarists, having performed over 120 shows in 2018. They will be bringing their eclectic mix of flamenco, contemporary Jazz and traditional playing to the UK for the first time!
Opposites attract and creative tension sparks between plus and minus: The two exceptional artists Jan Pascal and Alexander Kilian are like fire and ice – and this is precisely why they complement each other so well and form a musical symbiosis of world-class excellence. As a duo, they themselves embody the essence of a musical genre which combines opposites like no other does: authentic and timeless, dreamy and unrestrained, down-to-earth and mystic. Inbetween life and death the flamenco resounds. Two gifted instrumental artists declaring their love for pure and genuine music. In a dialogue where virtuoso fragility and archaic vigour caress each other, they revel in pictures and tones, challenge each other, spurred on to musically outdo each other – and the same as between plus and minus, a magical aura develops which nobody can escape. If God was a musician, the Flamenco guitar would be his instrument!
The duo will perform two 40 minute performances with a 20 minute interval inbetween. The performance will be an intimate conversation between the band and the audience discussing each piece and their relation to it and it's history.
The evening will be opened by The Jeffrey Hewer Trio, Leed's leading guitar lead contemporary Jazz trio. Not one to miss!
All Advanced ticket holders are entitled to 10% off their final bill on the day of the performance.
