Atlanta, GA, April 20, 2012 --(PR.com)-- ¡Venga! Flamenco presents Siempre Flamenco’s VII Festival de Cante Flamenco. This annual event is in its seventh year in Miami and is making its debut in Atlanta on Saturday, May 12, 2012 at the Hotel Melia in Midtown Atlanta for one night only. The event features an evening of traditional Flamenco song and dance from Spain. Festival de Cante Flamenco will feature Spanish Flamenco singers, Internationally recognized Flamenco guitarist, singer and composer Paco Fonta, and Nationally acclaimed Flamenco dancer and teacher Celia Fonta.

The Siempre Flamenco VII Festival de Cante Flamenco brings dynamic Flamenco music, dance, and singing to the Hotel Melia Atlanta on Saturday, May 12, 2012 at 8:00pm. Tickets are available at www.brownpapertickets.com/event/239921 or www.bestofAtlantaConcerts.com/tickets for $30 general admission, $35 for admission plus after-show tapas reception with artist, and $200 for on-stage table seating with wine.

Siempre Flamenco’s VII Festival de Cante Flamenco was created by acclaimed Flamenco duo guitarist Paco Fonta and his wife dancer Celia Fonta. Paco learned Flamenco as a native of Southern Spain and Celia studied Flamenco in Madrid under internationally renowned teachers. As professionals the duo has performed together across Europe, the United States and South America with organizations based in Madrid, Switzerland, Miami, Chicago and Venezuela. In 2006, Celia & Paco established the highly successful Siempre Flamenco festival in Miami showcasing traditional Flamenco singing, music and dance.

Festival de Cante Flamenco is dedicated to presenting the Flamenco tradition in fresh and engaging performances that delight its audiences. Laurie Horn of Miami Herald says, “The best part of the program was guitarist Paco Fonta's pristine, unblemished rendering of the classical tour de force Asturias...and his elegant Bulerias de Lebrija”. The show also highlights singing, an essential part of Flamenco’s roots. In keeping with the gypsy origins of Flamenco, the performers share the stage with audience members seated on-stage creating an in-the-round setting and bringing audience members close to the action. This setting was the norm when Flamenco first originated among gypsy circles in southern Spain, as families and friends gathered in small groups to share emotional expressions.
