Cañizares Flamenco Quintet’s extensive tour of Japan, in 2018, has been included in a programme produced by La 2 (part of the Spanish Broadcast Corporation – TVE) in order to commemorate the anniversary of diplomatic relations between Spain and Japan. I share the beautiful photos taken by the Japanese photographer Masataka Ishida, who had the kindness to send them to me recently.
