Flamenco is pure passion. But for the feeling to flow, so that “the goblin” appears,
as the gypsies call that moment of rapture, of deep emotion, certain premises have to be fulfilled:
This art deserves respect, attention and silence. That’s the reason we do not serve meals.
The din of a restaurant interferes with the creative silence that flamenco artists need, apart from undermining the greatness of this art.
100 years ago, we danced and sang in basements of vaulted bricks, like ours. Artists on a small stage, surrounded by fans.
The private party intimacy, family, impregnates the genes of this art: it is the essence of flamenco.
Flamenco is a song to sing in the ear, a secret of the soul that confesses to a group of people nearby.
That’s why we do not need, or use, microphones and speakers. The sound comes clean, authentic, from instruments without amplification.
Our artistic director, “El Mistela”, National Prize of the Flamenco Critic, has formed around him a group of flamenco stars.
A small family, united especially, by the high artistic quality of its members.
The respect for this art, the intimacy during the show, the musical sound of a cave of old bricks,
and the complicity between artists, is what sets us apart, and it’s what we offer every day in Essential Flamenco.
I live in Madrid for years and I had never visited because it seemed the typical place for guiris. American friends came to visit and, of course, I brought them here. The surprise was a big one because you really entered a new world, totally out of the business. Authentic Flamenco. I was thrilled (and I'm not a big flamenco fan). Do not let it pass.
Our visit has been, beyond a pleasure, a trip for flamenco; the pure, fierce flamenco, the one that bristles the hairs and transports to the time of the more hidden tablaos where this now universal art was born. If someone wants to see flamenco of the good, do not miss the show of TORERO.
A magical place! An intimate cave, so much that you can play the bailaores, where the rhythm of the heap floods the space and permeates your soul, penetrates you with its rhythm, its dance, its broken voice, making you vibrate with its closeness and good work. A night with ELF, with art. With lots of art. I never thought that I would remain to discover a magical place of Madrid, special. And the Torero room has been. A pleasant surprise at a good price and with very good attention. Of the best tablao flamenco I have seen in a long time.
If you like Flamenco like me, let yourself fall for this corner of the elf .. unforgettable experience .. cantaor, guitarist, drawer, violin, bailaora spectacular directed by the Mistela .. there is nothing ... in addition to the chapel, without speakers nor micros .... total unplugged! These things happen, not by chance, but because there are passionate professionals behind the show and that shows. Not to be missed !!!!!
