José Valencia’s new show is going to be called Bashavel, a Romanian word that means meeting, meeting, which is precisely what we want to provoke in this new production a meeting of two cultures, two music that walk independently but that drink from the same . José Valencia wants to show the beauty of the gypsy poetry of the world, in Romany and in Spanish, looking for the connection and musical, expressive and ideological similarities, to show that approach, to teach that there are other wonderful forms of music, which are closer to what we imagine

José Valencia example of the validity of the model of transmission of gypsy houses in the XXI century.
In Lebrija there are his family roots and his cantaor heritage. José Valencia belongs to a long and wide gypsy and flamenco lineage that also has its Jerez derivation because in its dynasty there are mythical names such as Juanichi el Manijero, Uncle Borrico or Parrilla de Jerez. And the surname Valencia continues to provide great flamenco artists, both from Jerez and from Lebrija.
Being just a child he already sang por soleá, besides his “aceitunitas partías”, a couplet he loved doing for bulerías. Jose was only 5 years old when he first climbs on stage, and he does it with figures such as Camarón, Fernanda, Bernarda, Manuel de Paula, José Meneses or Lebrijano, among others. Few artists have had a debut of such height with such a short age.
With work and perseverance, José has been earning the respect of the world of flamenco. Four “Giraldillos” endorse him: the Revelation Artist,... +
...the Sing for the Dance and the Singing and Magical Moment. No other flamenco artist has managed to get four Giraldillos, which are the most important awards that are awarded today in the world of jondo. We must add to the list of other important recognitions such as the Venencia Flamenca award (granted by the Mistela Festival to artists under 30 years of age) or the Award for Best Accompanying Singer at the Festival de Jerez. It has two albums “Solo Flamenco” and “Directo”. This last recorded live at the Bienal de Flamenco.
He has just presented the show “Gila” within the framework of the 50th Anniversary of the Teatro Lebrijano.
