MORE than 200 artists will participate in the fourth edition of Malaga’s marathon ‘Bienal de Flamenco,’ which kicked off this week.
This major, seven-month event, organised by Malaga Provincial Council through the Costa del Sol Tourism society, celebrates everything flamenco.
The event’s programme was unveiled by head of the provincial council, Elias Bendodo, who explained that the Flamenco Bienal would not only host dance performances but also concerts, conferences, exhibitions, courses, film showings and educational workshops for children.
