Flamenco art is loud and clear in ExpoFlamenco’s Jerez Shop
ExpoFlamenco’s shop in Jerez, Andalusia, has become established as a place to promote artists who have much to say with their music. Its online format is very successful, with a lot of flamenco content for all lovers of this art genre around the world.
Around the year 2014, Mitch and Jafelin Helten — owners of ExpoFlamenco — travelled from Canada to Seville to present their project to our dear Manuel Bohórquez. The dream of creating an authoritative flamenco website, from Spain to the world, was born. More than five years later, this project is not only alive and well, but has more strength and energy than ever.
Thus, in the autumn of 2019, the ExpoFlamenco brand made another step towards its goal of connecting flamenco communities around the world and promoting this art form with the opening of a brick and mortar store in iconic Jerez de la Frontera. It is a unique place, where experts, artists and aficionados converge among all kinds of flamenco articles and also participate in events such as a round table discussing the Festival de Jerez.
Unfortunately, Covid-19 arrived and all activity in the store was affected by the pandemic. It was a brief pause, though, and it soon reopened with a renewed spirit. It is a magical place where people can wander among CDs and all kinds of flamenco articles such as books, T-shirts, shawls, shoes, prints and even sculptures.
Flamenco music, the star of ExpoFlamenco’s Jerez Shop
Here we can find Quimeras del tiempo, Ezequiel Benítez trilogy with Ilus3, which has a special place as it was recently nominated for Best Flamenco Album in the 2020 Latin Grammy awards. There is also Directo en el Círculo Flamenco de Madrid featuring De la Tomasa and La Macanita, La voz vivida by Antonia Contreras and Flamenco y universidad. Vol LXII, featuring Diego Agujetas and Pepe del Morao.
Yet, it’s not just CDs. There are many other interesting articles such as the most recent book by bailaora María Moreno, Yo bailo, an intimate look into flamenco’s creative process, with spectacular photographs by Susana Girón.
ExpoFlamenco’s Jerez Shop, also on the internet
In times such as these, we would not like to leave flamenco aficionados without an online option where they could buy their favorite articles. Thus, all items available at ExpoFlamenco’s Jerez Shop are also available from our online store.
It is an unshakable commitment to provide a space for flamenco artists, contributing with them to promote this art form, particularly in times like these, when the flamenco community is experiencing hardships due to the closure of numerous tablaos and the cancellation of so many flamenco shows and festivals.
