The UK should consider itself very lucky to have such a talented quintet in its shores. ~ Songlines
 
Featured in the best of world music 2014 ~ iTunes
 
Calaita Flamenco Son are Seville born flamenco singer Chico Pere, UK based guitarist Glenn Sharp, percussionist Leo Paredes, singer Diana Castro and saxophonist / flutist Matt Nickson.
 
The band plays a mix of authentic, traditional and contemporary flamenco. The material is mostly written by Chico and  his lyrics pull on his life experiences, growing up in Triana-Seville, as well as his travels throughout Europe. Glenn also writes for the band, bringing his virtuoso playing style to the fore. The diverse musical backgrounds in the band are evident, through world music, soul, jazz, funk, and of course flamenco. Calaita Flamenco Son have achieved their own individual style and bring a fresh new sound to the world music scene.  
 
 
Calaita are an exciting live band and have been busy performing for the past two years at clubs, festivals and concert halls. They have also recently performed a series of gigs in Andalucia.
 
Their self-titled debut album is now out on Riverboat Records and can be bought online from World Music Network.

Tickets are £8 or £10 on the door and are available online from SEE Tickets, Skiddle & WeGotTickets
