“Not Your Typical Flamenco”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2013

The Bad: Show started about 30 minutes late, they only take cash payments (if you're a student take your card as there's a discount), the timing information on their website wasn't up-to-date when we went so we arrived an hour before the doors opened (and even still the show started late). The wine is terrible! Go for the sherry instead.

The Good: These performers are authentic Flamenco dancers/singers/musicians. This is a no frills kind of show; all the beautiful Flamenco dresses you see in shops in Malaga are for the more touristy and typical dancers. The Kelipe group on the other hand identify themselves as hailing from the gypsy community. Their performance is stripped down and more about the music than the dancing so if you're looking for something more visual and glamorous then this is probably not the Flamenco show for you. If you want something more authentic and extremely passionate then this is the show for you!

“Great show in an intimate setting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2013

Love, love, loved this show! Shane and his team are so passionate about providing an authentic view into their lifestyle and the art of Flamenco that you can't help but feel the joy. The theater only seats about 40 so you are right in the heart of the action and when the main singer belts out his first notes, goosebumps pop on your arms. When in Malaga - see this show. Ask for a table on the left side if you are facing the stage (stage right?) so you can see the fast fingers on the guitar (he is right handed so he turns his body to that side when playing). If you hang out after the show all of the performers are in the lobby and you can meet them and take pictures.

“Best show in the area”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2013

Having been to all of the flamenco shows from Malaga to Fuengirola this is definately the best.I was impressed with the out and out passion of the group! The dancer is a powerhouse of a dancer, and one of the most impressive I seen!
