BULERIANDO… Tune Up

In preparation for his national tour and the launch of a long-awaited CD, Australian flamenco guitarist, Rowland Schultz (aka Vikingo De Jerez) is tuning up and doing what he does best around Melbourne this month.

Vikingo De Jerez is quickly establishing a reputation for showcasing some of Australia’s best flamenco musicians and dancers. The Open Studio Fiestas are at the forefront of a new era of flamenco in Melbourne where Vikingo has discovered a natural way to ease an audience – and an evening of entertainment – from Music to Performance to Party.

Vikingo de Jerez, Joshua and Michael

Previous regular and featured guests have included; Michael Kontochristos (percussion), Joshua Arent (percussion & guitar), Laura Uhe (dance), Aya Kitaoji (dance), Fernando Mira (dance), Chantelle Fernandes (dance), Los Cortes Gitanos (cante), Antonio Vargas (dance) and of course Vikingo himself on a custom made Andalusian Guitars instrument.

Date For The Next Open Studio Event

$15 at the door, entertainment begins at 9pm. Be Early for Good Seating.

Vikingo De Jerez will also be playing at the Music for Change Festival at the Melbourne Town Hall – Tuesday, 16 November 2010 at 7:30 PM sharing the stage with a mix of Melbourne’s best gypsy and bohemian talent and emerging artists. This is a charity gig with a really fun and exciting line-up including; The WooHoo Revue, Anastasia Barishnikova, Fem Belling Trio, Nicholas Roy,  Synthetic Beast and about 10 other musical and performance acts.

For Rowland these gigs are both warm up events for his Vikingo De Jerez CD release at the Spanish Club on the 18th of December in Melbourne before it hits the road and travels around Australia. This new Australian Flamenco CD is titled, ‘BULERIANDO!’

The launch of an Australian Flamenco Album is a brave undertaking within our small flamenco community. With many different camps and disconnected groups of flamencos around Australia we say OLE!!! to anyone who gets out there, knowing full well that they will be pre-judged by their peers.

When YOU buy an Australian Flamenco CD or attend an Australian Flamenco Event it sends a clear message to promoters and producers in Australia that…

“Flamenco Is Exciting, Sells Units
And Puts Bums On Seats!”

This latest CD –  ‘BULERIANDO‘ – will be included in the ticket price of the Spanish Club Gig and the subsequent launch events around the country. We encourage all of our subscribers to own and listen to a copy and send a clear message that you support flamenco in Australia.

Take a listen to a sample track ‘MECCA’ from the upcoming CD – BULERIANDO.

We say OLE! to Rowland Schultz, a self-taught flamenco guitarist who is receiving international recognition from leading flamenco artists and musicians including Duquende, Tommy Emmanuel, Ginesa Ortega, Arcangel, Lulo Reinhardt, Antonio Vargas, Misirli Ahmet and Harri Stojka.

Substantial endorsements for a career that is only just getting tuned up!
