Flamenco Stars for Haiti

Flamenco dancer David Morales, of La Línea, is bringing together a host of top line singers and dancers in aid of Haiti, to raise funds for a children's refuge there. The charity show is scheduled for tonight March 18 and tomorrow, 19th at  the Palacio de Congresos at 9.30pm. Among the flamenco stars are María Toledo, Chiquetete, Eva la Yerbabuena, Arcángel, Tomatito, La Tobala, Diego Carrasco, Moraito Chico, Carmen Linares and Cecilia Gómez, among several others. It was announced this morning that famed dancer Farruquito will be taking part tonight. Morales was in Port-au-Prince in November last year with his show Indiano; he says, "When I saw the disaster I felt morally obliged to do something about it." All income goes directly to Infancia sin Fronteras y Mensajeros de la Paz. This is a chance to see the best flamenco while helping the victims of Haiti's earthquake.
