Festival Ay! Más Flamenco World Music Institute

WMI’s storied Flamenco dance series returns with four entrancing evenings that range from cutting-edge to traditional.

Festival Ay! Más Flamenco world-class dance featuring the avant-garde flair of Quebec’s La Otra Orilla, the purity of Spain’s eminent solo traditionalists La Lupi and Joaquin Grilo, and the exciting and renowned dancer-singer duo of wife-and-husband Sonia Olla and Ismael Fernández.


La Otra Orilla

Today Flamenco is global. This is French Canadian Flamenco, a Contemporary Flamenco from Montréal’s rebellious and subversive iconoclasts. It has that French quirkiness.
