Culturae Mundi Events

¡Flamenko Coventry!

Culturae Mundi will be hosting Flamenko Coventry on the 24th & 25th of May 2017 !

“The 3rd running of ¡Flamenko Coventry! promises to be the best yet with some great artists and speakers booked and the launch of a superb exhibition which celebrates the finest flamenco photography. It’s been eighty years since the poet Federico García Lorca was executed in his home province of Granada by the Nationalist forces. There will be a fascinating conversation giving much insight into his love and interest in flamenco art, followed by a screening of his most famous work Blood Wedding, and in the evening a live performance of his poetry with guitar accompaniment.”
