The infamous Caracolillo de Montreal will be our voice for the evening. Caracolillo is one of Canada's greatest flamenco voices. This self-taught native of Montreal will shock you with his 'Soniquete' as he sounds as if he has come straight from Jerez de la Frontera. He is named Caracolillo (little snail) after his curly hair, and also as a side reference to the famous singer Manolo Caracol.
Milena Tejada is a young dancer tearing up the flamenco scene in Bolivia, Seville (Spain) and now Montreal. She has been nick-named la Tormentita (the little storm) for her powerful and relentless footwork and superb technique.
Dennis Duffin, a guitarist originally from Toronto and now based in Seville Spain, tours regularly with Fin de Fiesta Flamenco, is an original member of Toronto world music group Ventanas, and is known throughout flamenco circles in Canada and abroad. He is presenting this current formation of super talented artists based out of Montreal in some of his favourite cities, Montreal, Toronto, Hamilton and Ottawa.
