In 2020 we celebrate the Tokyo Olympic Games in Japan, and Cañizares is working full steam ahead in the Artistic Swimming Spanish National Team.
In 2020 he will travel to Japan three times: during the Olympic Games, for his tour, and for the presentation of the album Rodrigo por Cañizares. He shall also visit other countries in Asia and Latin America.
Cañizares gave a solo concert in Gibraltar. The event was celebrated in The Convent Ballroom, a historical building built in the 16th century.
The concert was a great success. The repertoire was a wonderful mix of flamenco music by Cañizares and pieces of Spanish music arranged for guitar by Cañizares.
As a show of solidarity with those who suffered the consequences, the Gran Canaria Philharmonic Orchestra, directed by master Maestro Chichon offered an extraordinary concert and invited several first-rate artists to participate. They offered to play for free, as did master Chichon, in order to show their sympathy with the people from the Canaries.
Cañizares took part in this event, playing Rodrigo’s Fantasía para un Gentilhombre as a soloist.
