So while at the Pleasance Courtyard we booked some tickets for Alba Flamenca at the Lot in Grassmarket.
Now a few years ago we ate in the restaurant below the Lot and it was not a pleasant experience and we walked out after our starter. BUT the Lot is what looks like a small church hall about the restaurant and offers a very intimate venue
So Alba Flamenca … Earthy and stripped of artifice, Alba Flamenca delivers pure passion. The stunning, mainly improvised performance gets right to the passionate soul of flamenco. Virtuoso musicians, powerful dancers and unrestrained passion combine to create the joy and tragedy of flamenco.
It was fantastic. Cost £10 and lasted just over an hour, and we grabbed front row seats. The dancers and musicians where awesome, you could hear every toe scrape of the dancers and the flamenco was stunning.
I would totally recommend this!
