Rocío Márquez UAE Premiere: Flamenco Duo Recital

Organised by Sorbonne University Abu Dhabi

After delivering exceptional performances at the Teatro Real and National Auditorium in Madrid and Paris -  Philharmonic and l’ Olympia, Flamenco singer Rocío Márquez will finally be making an appearance in the capital city! 

Discover the voice of a new generation of 'cante jondo' singers with Rocío Márquez's UAE Premiere, the Flamenco Duo Recital, presented by the Sorbonne University Abu Dhabi, in partnership with the Embassy of Spain in the United Arab Emirates.

Rocío Márquez (Huelva, 1985) has been carving out a solid artistic career for over a decade, a leading light of the flamenco scene, exploring and experimenting with melodies, instrumentation, arrangements and lyrics. Starting with the fresh-sounding live recording 'Aquí y ahora' (2009), 'Claridad (2012), 'El Niño' (2014), 'Firmamento' (2017) and 'Visto en El Jueves' (2019), as well as her collaboration with Fahmi Alqhai, 'Diálogos de viejos y nuevos sones' (2018).

That same creative restlessness has seen her share the stage with Jorge Drexler (with whom she presented ‘Aquellos Puentes Sutiles’ in 2018), Rosa Torres Pardo, Arcángel, Carmen Linares, José Manuel Zapata and record with The New Raemon, Christina Rosenvinge, Kiko Veneno, Albert Plá, Dani de Morón, Diego Carrasco and Refree.
