About the Show
Los Tarantos Barcelona was founded in 1963, making it one of Barcelona's oldest flamenco venues. Located in the Ciutat Vella quarter of the city, today the Los Tarantos is known for its nightly performances featuring a new generation of Catalan flamenco artists. For those who wish to enjoy a short, quality flamenco show at a reasonable price, Los Tarantos is an excellent place to do so. The establishment holds 3 or 4 nightly flamenco shows, with duration of approximately 30 minutes for each performance. The affordable shows attract a large international crowd as well as local flamenco aficionados.
Inside Los Tarantos includes a full service bar, as well as a seating area with tables and chairs which surround a small stage, offering good views from almost any vantage point. The artists who regularly grace the stage at Los Tarantos include flamenco singers such as Alba Carmona and Sara Flores, both of whom regularly perform in some of the most important flamenco festivals in Spain. Dancers include Nacho Blanco, Yolanda Cortés, Iván Alcalá and Iñaki Márquez, the latter considered by many critics to be one of the best dancers of the new generation of Catalan flamenco. Guitar players include Eduardo and Juan Cortes, while percussionist David Dominguez, often divides his time between playing with both flamenco and jazz groups.
The club's history dates back to the early sixties, although its renaissance was in the early nineties when Los Tarantos was renovated and a new generation of flamenco artists began to be featured on a regular basis. During the first ten years the club attracted a wide variety of talent, from established artists to up and coming performers. The list of artists at Los Tarantos during these days is quite impressive, with names such as Duquende, Miguel Poveda, Montse Cortés, and Rafael Riqueni. Later came Pepe Habichuela, Paco Cepero, Tomasito, Eva la Yerbabuena and Niña Pastori. In recent years the flamenco sessions have featured toque, cante y baile (flamenco guitar playing, singing and dancing) by some of the best local emerging flamenco talent, giving you a chance to see the artists up close at the beginning of their careers.
