Part of ‘La Leona, women and the guitar’, this event presented by the IGF features the excellent guitar groups of Haringey Guitars performing with guests Antonia Jiménez, one of the foremost women flamenco guitarists in the world, and the charismatic German guitarist Jule Malischke.
London’s Haringey Music Hub is unique in placing the guitar at the heart of its work which is why it’s a natural partner for IGF’s outreach work with children and young adults.
Tonight’s concert features the excellent guitar groups of Haringey Guitars performing with guests Antonia Jiménez and Jule Malischke. (we offer a special separate price of £5 for this part of the evening).
ANTONIA JIMÉNEZ, flamenco guitar with support from songwriter and guitarist JULE MALISCHE.
Antonia Jiménez is the foremost women flamenco guitarist in the world. Flamenco guitar was for a long time the most male dominated form of guitar playing but this has changed very much in recent years. Antonia is a pioneer. She has led the field of flamenco women players for the past 30 years touring all over the globe as a soloist and accompanist of top flamenco singers and dancers.
The moment Jule Malischke walks out on stage, audiences are immediately captivated by her genuine and vibrant charisma, and they will follow her down any road she leads them with her warm and beautiful voice and exceptional guitar playing.
She presents her songs passionately and poetically, songs which tell us stories about personal encounters, great joy, aspirations and disappointments, reflecting life with all its yearnings, hopes and dreams.
This concert is part of La Leona, women and the guitar.
