Sumaya brings together the talents of some of London’s finest flamenco artists. The group offers a fusion of modern and traditional influences in flamenco, balancing due attention to the gypsy art form with a musically adventurous streak that defies old stereotypes and presents flamenco as it is performed in Spain today.
Sumaya have performed in numerous festivals across the UK including at Glastonbury, Musicport and on the Global Local circuit with Continental Drifts. In July 2009, they opened for Carmen Linares at the Barbican Freestage.
They have performed for the Costa Urbana Group, Lost Vagueness, the Vagabond Boogaloo Club in venues such as The Notting Hill Arts Club, Cargo and The Vortex. The group’s debut theatre performances at the Norwich Playhouse and The Cut, Halesworth were also a resounding success.
