Chekara with Ángeles Gabaldón, at the Salam Orient Festival in Vienna

Chekara with Ángeles Gabaldón will perform this Tuesday the 31st at the Akzent Theatre in Vienna. The group visits the Austrian capital for the first time to take part in the Salam Orient Festival.Chekara is an orchestra offering a splendid mix of music from Al-Andalus and flamenco (“flamenco andalusí”); it is the oldest, most outstanding and influential group of its kind. The excellence of its musicians and the dancer Angeles Gabaldón, along with their original combination of styles have invariably earned praise and standing ovations  across four continents in the more than 300 concerts they have given in the past several years.
