Paco Pena - Flamenco Mass at Manchester Cathedral
Born and raised in the Spanish heartland of Cordoba, Paco Pena is considered one of the world's greatest living exponents of the haunting and passionate art of Flamenco. His virtuoso guitar playing, alongside his Paco Pena Flamenco Dance Company, has toured all the major concert halls of the world to huge international acclaim.
Now considered one of his greatest works, Pena has re-written the traditional church mass for flamenco guitars, dancer and large-scale choir to brilliant effect. By combining the melodic and rhythmic nuances from flamenco with the texts of the Liturgy, Paco Pena creates something that is revelatory and joyous to watch in equal measure.
The concert will feature Paco Pena on flamenco guitar, a full choir as well as flamenco guitarists, singers and flamenco dancers live.
“His total dedication of almost incredible technical skill so ensuring that listeners, held a packed house enraptured.” -The Daily Telegraph
