This evening will take the audience on a journey around Spain filled with vibrant colours and passion of flamenco. Dancer Aneta Skut is joined on this occasion by the finest flamenco musicians in the south-west Cuffy Cuthbertson (guitar) and Kostka Garcia (vocals/percussion).
Cuffy Cuthbertson began playing from an early age and when flamenco entered his life, it soon took over. He studied under Tito Heredia, Paco Serrano and Gerardo Núñez and has acquired an extraordinary level of technique. He tours internationally with singer Yasmin Levy as well as with the flamenco project. He teaches flamenco guitar in Bristol.
Kostka Garcia grew up on a diet of english and american music and playing drums in spanish band Bajas Pasiones in Madrid in the 80’s. After moving to Stroud he started learning flamenco guitar with Gerardo Núñez, cajon and cante with Talegon de Cordoba, Bonela hijo and Rafael de Utrera. Kostka has since performed regularly in the south west.
Aneta Skut has discovered her passion for dance as a child but flamenco has captured her soul and led her to follow its path to Spain, where she learnt from renowned teachers at Amor de Dios in Madrid and in Andalusia (including La Truco, Antonio Canales and La Lupi). Aneta’s expressive style has brought together many influences from the east and west – a fusion representing her life journey through different countries. Aneta lives in Taunton where she teaches weekly flamenco classes. She also performs regularly in the South-West.
