Spanish pianist and composer Ariadna Castellanos is one of the emerging talents of the flamenco and jazz scenes. She's presenting her album Flamenco en Black and White, produced by frequent Grammy winner Javier Limón (Lágrimas Negras, Cositas Buenas, Buika) and under Universal Music in Spain.
Born in Madrid, Castellanos started playing piano when she was 6 and won a full scholarship at 17 to the Guildhall School of Music for classical piano. Flamenco was always her passion, and in Spain she worked with many of the main flamenco figures including Niño Josele, Jorge Pardo, Agustín Carbonel "El Bola,” and Jesús del Rosario, among others.
She is the only Spanish musician to receive the Presidential Award at Berklee College of Music. She has recorded with Alejandro Sanz, Javier Limón, and Jorge Pardo. She has performed in festivals all over the world, sharing the stage with Paco de Lucia, Michel Camilo, Herbie Hancock, and Richard Bona.
This event is free and open to the public.
