Cuadro Flamenco Café Ziryab

We want our audiences to experience natural flamenco– nothing more, up close and unfolding on our stage, where moments of silence mix with moments of inspiration and risk-taking… a space for improvisation. Artists of distinct backgrounds come together in our cuadro to participate in this art form, which is their source of common expression.

Anya y Susana Peña

Anya and Susana Peña

Our flamenco group (cuadro) presents an intimate show that is constantly changing, with artists that rotate on a weekly and monthly basis, always willing to evolve and dedicated to presenting a distinct show every night.



Our flamenco cuadro offers audiences a traditional show. The show presents distinct styles of flamenco such as Soleá, Siguiriyas, Alegrías, Tientos, Fandangos, Tangos, Bulerías, Guajiras and Tarantos, and we always attempt to vary the composition of each show, offering singing and guitar solos as well, so as to present a distinct show every day that will satisfy audiences and allow us to continue to develop as artists.
