La Toná is a beautifully and maintained cave in the very Spanish village of Abanilla. This very old village with its steep, narrow streets, better suited to a donkey & cart than traffic, is a truth taste of Spain from the last century. It even has his own renovated washery where some women still washes their clothes by hand.
Immediately upon entering the cave, it´s impossible not to feel the energy radiating from within. The decor in the cave is traditionally Spanish and complements de flamenco show. It is tastefully decorated and furnished with individually hand painted tables and chairs and the seating arrangements allow an up close and personal view of the show, giving the guests the feeling of being part of the performance itself.
Before the show there is a brief explanation, in English, about the history of flamenco and the meaning of the Gipsy cave. The memory of the dancers in their brightly coloured dresses, proudly throwing back their heads. The performers appear to be in a trance as they twirl and stamp their feet to the emotive guitar music, rhythmic clapping of the hands and the deeply sound of the voice of the singer. You´ll feel a part of the show itself, enjoying every moment until it culminates in an explosion of energy. It´s impossible to leave without tears of emotion from a truly exciting evening. It is flamenco on another level, conveying to the audience, the passion of the Spanish and, in particular, that of the flamenco culture.
We are making you feel as though you are coming to our home.
Hope to see you soon in our Gipsy cave …
