Shows

A versatile artist and an active performer, Aylin Eleonora has danced as soloist and choreographed her shows and numbers since 2009, both in classical Flamenco and experimental Flamenco-Fusion projects, where she has shared the stage with world-class musicians.

El Eco de Santiago

With all its aspects, possibilities and facets that require constant study, Flamenco is one of the greatest sources of motivation in my life. It is essential for me to work with talented musicians when it comes to creating new shows and numbers; I am lucky to have some of the Flamenco scene’s most brilliant artists collaborating in this show.

Bailaora & Guitarra

As in life, sometimes I prefer a simple but profound minimalist expression, a great raw material to work with. Choreographing and dancing classical flamenco guitar compositions is a challenge that allows me to pursue a more intimate essence: by picking away the layers we can find the essence of art.

In Bailaora & Guitarra a unique atmosphere is created on stage where art can transport us back to different past eras.

Is a group formed by Jazz guitarist Raoul Björkenheim (Los Angeles, 1956) and Raúl Mannola (Buenos Aires, 1963).

The Flamenco dancer Aylin Eleonora visualizes the music through her dance, and brings pace and strength with her impressive footwork. Together, the group creates enormous amounts of beauty and energy.

Mahavishnu Flamenco

The Mahavishnu Orchestra is one of those mythical groups of the jazz-rock movement of the 70’s, and to many people, including Walter Kolosky, the author of the fantastic book about the band, “Power, Passion & Beauty”, the best band that ever existed.

Mahavishnu Flamenco plays the music of that unique band emphasizing and accentuating the Flamenco spirit of the music. With 2 Flamenco guitars, 2 percussionists, a flute player and a Flamenco dancer, the music has an amazing power and beauty, but also a surprising Flamenco flavour.

During four decades many versions of these pieces have been played, but never from a Flamenco point of view until now..
