Farsa Moneda in Concert : 27 January

Farsa Moneda in Concert : 27 January

Traditional Spanish Coplas form a genre that reflects the passions and dreams of the Spanish people in the aftermath of the Spanish Civil War, a heartwrenching and divisive time that came to an end in 1939, and was followed by the long dictatorship under Franco. Farsa Moneda bring alive these songs with a vibrancy and desire to share the stories contained within them. Well known in Spain, coplas are less so abroad. Through the beautiful sound of the guitar, profound and powerful vocals and many different latin percussion instruments, Farsa Moneda offer a very personal and contemporary approach to Spanish and Latin traditional music.

Farsa Moneda are: Violeta García (voice & violin), Pablo Dominguez (guitar & percussion), and Maria Camahort (guitar).

Performances have included festivals such as City of London Festival and London Classical Guitar Festival, and venues such as Bolívar Hall, The Forge, Ronnie Scott's Upstairs and Bishopsgate Institute.

Tickets cost £14 per person and rather uniquely, include tea/coffee. It should be said that the venue itself is one of London's very best and most inviting hidden gems: the sofa-filled cinema at Sands Films, nestled in the historical neighbourhood of Rotherhithe Village, on the River Thames, south of Wapping and north of Canada Water.

It's easy to get to on the Jubilee/Overground (Rotherhithe) and bicycles are welcome inside!
