Accompanied by the great flamenco cantaor from Jerez, Miguel Lavi, and exceptional guitarist David Caro from Almeria, the prize-winning dancer is bringing her acclaimed 'Tarab' show to Liverpool for one night only. Whereas audiences won’t be listening to ‘Genie In A Bottle’, they most certainly will be witnessing something truly ‘Beautiful’.

Cristina Aguilera is a powerful performer, with the strength and rhythm of her feet as well as beauty and expression of her hands and movements. Having presented her own shows at international festivals, her dance includes the traditional fringed ‘manton’ (shawl) and she is also supremely talented on castanets.

Cristina’s Tarab show is something to behold — depicting the Arabic meaning of a state of ecstasy, rapture or enchantment that is induced when one connects with music and seizes its energy. On the night, the audience will be taken on a breathtaking journey through traditional flamenco dance, song and guitar.

Flamenco cantaor Miguel Lavi is highly respected and in constant demand at international festivals worldwide for his passionate and rhythmic approach to pure flamenco song. Meanwhile, guitarist David is much in demand by singers and dancers alike for his lyrical composition and wide range of musical expression.

Organiser, Sarah Chambers of Espiritu Flamenco, says:

“I love the traditional flamenco and the sheer musicality of these artists. It’s such an exciting art form, with the emphasis on expression of feelings and the incredible improvisation.”
