Fiesta de la Guitarra

87
5

The Marchena Guitar Festival first took place in July 1967. Currently, the Guitar Festival is held in Cardinal Spinola Square, and guitar enthusiasts from across Andalusia flock to the event. Marchena is one of many towns that, over the last 70 years, has encouraged the emergence of new “cante jondo” talent throughout Seville.

As the name of the Festival implies, the annual Flamenco Festival in Marchena is dedicated to the guitar, or “sonanta”, as it is commonly known by flamenco purists, accompanied by singing and dancing.
