In the same way that the blend of couscous spices surrounds us with its exotic fragrance and exquisite flavour, CusCus Flamenco´s music fills us with enchantment and mystery, sentiment and spirit.
The profundity of the flamenco singing and Arab-Andalusian lyrical poetry in it’s purest form, accompanied by the beauty and passion of flamenco dance makes for an unforgettable and unique experience. CusCus Flamenco is a cultural encounter where art flows in its maximum capacity, bringing out the best of each tradition through a musical language that has neither barriers nor frontiers.
Based in the beautiful city of Granada, Spain, the group is made up of Moroccan and Spanish musicians, with extensive careers in various formations. They share a desire of exploring the musical traditions of Al-Andalus, namely classical Arab-Andalusian and Flamenco music.
The flamenco half of the group consists of the great “cantaor” Alberto Funes, from Granada, and guitarist Lolo de la Encarna. Both artists have extensive careers in their fields, travelling widely in Europe and farther afield, and have collaborated with flamenco dancers Cristina Aguilera, Eva Manzano, Irene la Serranilla and Irene Rueda.
