Seven years ago, three local musicians left the country for Seville, Spain, the flamenco world capital. They were in search of the soul of that art, which according to world-renowned guitarist Paco de Lucia has its roots in the Jewish liturgy.

After performing with international names in the field, such as cantaora (flamenco singer-songwriter) Esperanza Fernandez, and bailaora (flamenco dancer) Belen Maya, they are back, ready to share their expertise with the Israeli public. Tomorrow they will be appearing in the plaza of the Jerusalem Theater, in a performance that combines their live act with on-screen viewing.
