La Candela (from Spanish, fire or flame) brings the essence of fiery flamenco, Latin jazz, and world music to your event. The story begins with Ania La Candela, who left everything to spend over two years in Seville to pursue her dream of becoming a professional flamenco artist. Upon her return from Spain, Ania started La Candela Company to share her love for flamenco and bring flamenco and Spanish music closer to North America. She closely works with guitarists Jose Chirinos and Otto Doble T to bring together the tradition of flamenco from southern Spain, Spanish classical music, Latin jazz, world fusion and the diverse cultural backgrounds of the artists. La Candela Company also invites and collaborates with other national and international guest flamenco artists.
The company produces live flamenco shows in the Atlanta area and is also available for hire anywhere in the Southeast and beyond, bringing a Spanish flair and captivating, unique entertainment to both corporate and private events.
