Cardamomo, the heart of Flamenco in Madrid

Cardamomo was founded as a live performance venue in 1996. Almost 30 years of experience have made it one of the most important venues in Madrid’s emblematic Las Letras neighborhood.

It has hosted some of the most renowned artists in the world of flamenco and jazz. It has also seen the professional and personal growth of singers, dancers and guitarists who are now legends. From the members of the famous Sexteto Paco de Lucía; Jorge Pardo, Carles Benavent and Tino di Geraldo to the “captain” of the dance, Farruquito.

We understand flamenco as one of the greatest cultural exponents that belong to Madrid society.

Cardamomo Tablao is the best flamenco school. Both spectators and artists learn every day from the magic that happens on stage. They are essential spaces for the transmission and preservation of flamenco in its purest form.

Exhibitions, album presentations, film screenings, award ceremonies and, above all, a lot of flamenco have been hold here. One of them is the permanent exhibition of the renowned photographer Paco Manzano, which you can see inside our hall.

It is an intimate space. A reduced capacity, thanks to which you can appreciate the best flamenco artists just a few metres away. Cardamomo gives you the opportunity to feel part of the show and share with the best in a family atmosphere.

The cultural trajectory of the Cardamomo Tablao Flamenco venue was recognised in 2014 when it was listed by the Madrid City Council as “Cultural Heritage of the City of Madrid” in the Centro district for its “special characteristics and uniqueness” (BOAM, 13 November 2014).

In the tablao of Cardamomo, dance and singing that springs from the deepest flamenco feeling coexist with passion.

For this reason, the emotional communication of our artists transcends in the spectator as an intensely personal and unforgettable experience.

Flamenco Tablao in Madrid

Cardamomo, the Flamenco Powerhouse in the Capital of Spain

A meeting point for the best flamenco artists and scholars, the Cardamomo tablao has become a symbol of the love of this art and recognised by flamenco greats such as Joaquín Cortés, Enrique Morente, Estrella Morente, Jorge Pardo, Antonio Carmona, Ramón El Portugués, Tomatito and Raimundo Amador among others.

Ever since it was founded in 1994, at this tablao in Madrid it has been usual to find promising young talent who thought of Cardamomo as their “rehearsal room” for their new musical curiosities, and later they come back as acclaimed professionals.

As a result of these years of intense artistic activity committed to offering the public this art in the purest, most authentic form, the Cardamomo flamenco tablao programmes live performances every day with a different flamenco group each month.

The universal relevance of flamenco was recognised by UNESCO in 2010, inscribing it onto the “Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity“.

In this regard, and forever, flamenco is expressed in blood and flesh, passion, full of life and emotion at the Madrileño tablao Cardamomo; it’s language of the heart in true flesh that raises its voice and wakes up the flesh and soul of the world.

Cardamomo Flamenco Tablao, Recognised as Cultural Heritage of Madrid

The cultural contribution of Cardamomo Tablao Flamenco was recognised in 2014 when it was categorised by the City Council of Madrid as Cultural Heritage of the City of Madrid” in the Centre district for “its special characteristics and singularity” (BOAM, 13 November 2014).

At the Cardamomo tablao dancing and singing are entwined with passion, emerging from the deepest core of flamenco.

Moreover, this passion is accompanied with other examples of flamenco art, such as the guitar, heel tapping, castanets and sometimes even violins.

Thus the emotional expression of our artists becomes an intensely personal and unforgettable experience for the audience.

Alone in front of the stage, the audience faces the true art of flamenco in a show that they will remember forever.
