Duende Flamenco Festival: From Granada To The Generalife Palace says
The Aga Khan Museum presents its second year of flamenco programming! This three-day festival celebrates the multi-disciplinary nature of flamenco, influenced by different cultures and forms, and its continually evolving modes of expression. With a focus on Granada, this year’s festival is programmed to compliment the special exhibition "Álvaro Siza: Gateway to the Alhambra".

Discover new perspectives on the Spanish Alhambra and Generalife Palace through cante (flamenco song) and music! Singer Alfredo Tejada and guitarist Patrocinio Hijio perform an ode to the city of Granada and the fiery flamenco that has flourished in its corners. Travel through song to the Moorish roots of some of Granada’s most famous sites, then enjoy the rhythms and beats of present-day flamenco.

This performance includes songs from "Directo" (2015), the duo’s first album, nominated for “Best Album” at the Flamenco Hoy Awards.
