The Spanish Embassy in Berlin presented on the past 1st of July, in collaboration with the Ibero-American Institute, the consummate flamenco guitar player: Javier Conde.
The young musician from Extremadura, born in the city of Cáceres in 1988, showed an impressive technical knowledge and great artistic skills. During the flamenco exhibition, Javier Conde performed songs from his long repertoire such as “Cueva del Gato”, by Paco de Lucía, “La “Cartuja” by Gerardo Núñez or “Brisas Antillanas” by Andrés Battista, among other flamenco classical verses.
Javier Conde, played along in the company of his father, the flamenco guitar player José Antonio Conde. Between father and son, they gather a notable artistic experience, including experiences and concerts in countries with diverse and rich musical patrimony such as Brasil, Japan, Lebanon, Canada and Morocco. Javier Conde, with only fifteen years old, won the first prize in the prestigious “Cante de las Minas” Festival in Murcia.
The presentation of the concert was undertaken by the Cultural Section of the Spanish Embassy in Berlin. Gloria Mínguez, the Spanish Council of the Cultural Section, gave a farewell speech at the Embassy during the event.
The concert has been accomplished in the context of the increasing cooperation between the Spanish Embassy in Berlin and the Ibero-American Institute, an institution integrated in the public German foundation “Stiftung Preussischer Kulturbesitz”, or the Prussian Cultural Heritage.
