Fiesta Flamenca at The Forge

It has been a while since I last attended a live music/ dance gig, so when I found out about a live flamenco performance at The Forge in Camden, I suggested it to my friend, who is also a fan of different dance forms.

I only discovered The Forge last year and was surprised that there is such a contemporary, laidback and friendly music venue in the middle of Camden. The venue has two floors, with bar and restaurant serving tasty British and European food and cocktails. The unqiue courtyard with glass rooftop and vertical garden is where the music performances take place, so unlike many other music venues, it is airy with good acoustics.


The foundry at The Forge also serves lunches and weekend brunches


The evening performance was performed by London-based, Fiesta Flamenca, made up of vocalist and dancer Anita La Maltesa and guitarist Ramon Ruiz. Joined by another vocalist Javier Macías and dancer Jorge Muelas, the performance was exuberant and captivating. Aside from the superb skills, the energy, passion and joy conveyed on stage was almost contagious. The only downside was that my friend and I would rather be inside a local tapas bar in Spain than a wet and cold London... having said that, I think the 'heated' performance more than made up for the freezing temperature outside.
