Be captivated by intoxicating rhythms, soulful Cante, passionate dance and mesmerizing classical guitar. Paco Peña, the world’s finest Spanish guitarist, returns to New Zealand shores with Flamencura – his sultry exploration of Flamenco.


Flamencura demonstrates how the vehement emotions that prompted singers, dancers and guitarists of days gone by, continue to nourish the art form today, and will remain the life-blood of Flamenco – always.


We have a special give-away for Salsa con Coco members. Win two tickets by emailing Julia at The Edge; with Paco Peña’s date and place of birth. The first correct answer she receives will be sent a double pass to the show!

Don’t miss Flamencura – a musical journey of razor sharp rhythmic complexity.
