About Flamarabenco


  “Flamarabenco” was formed in Patras, Greece in 2011 with the idea to trace and join together the common roots and sounds of the Arabic and flamenco music genres. Its members Yiannis Panagiotopoulos (oud, lyra), George Barakos (percussion) and Andreas Kikinas (flamenco guitar), coming from different musical backgrounds, share a vision for combining diverse musical styles all influenced or inspired by Andalusian sounds. They blend traditional compositions from the East with flamenco elements and improvise on musical pieces of composers such as Tarik Banzi, Naseer Shamma, Anouar Brahem, Paco de Lucia, Gerardo Nuñez and many others... Flamarabenco have performed in various music stages around Greece and also have participated in festivals such as “Days of Percussion” 2012 and “Small Festival of Mediterranean Music” 2013.

“Flamarabenco” is a journey through the roots of tradition given in a very modern perspective that merges the mysticism of the East with the “flame” of Flamenco and the aroma of the Mediterranean. Their inspiration source is the vast treasure of the musical traditions of these different cultures which allows for Flamenco’s main trait, improvisation...
