Kelipé is an idea, a way of being, and an entire life of dedication and devotion to Flamenco Art. This is how the proprietors describe themselves, and that perceives it when someone enters this welcoming cultural centre. This magnificent and devoted family of artists has an impressive artistic trajectory, a unique history, and exceptional talent in the stage that is transmitted from the very first chords.

Shane González “El Indio” is the director of Kelipé, as well as, an extraordinary guitar player, with a very special story. He has native American roots and Spanish gypsy DNA, concretely from Jerez de la Frontera, become him a very unique artist. Before arriving to Spain he travelled throughout the U.S.A. with “Cerro Negro” (a talented and representative of flamenco fusion groups). He is also a music teacher of the University of Fresno, CA.

Susana A. Manzano “La Yedra”, is co-director of the centre and married to “El Indio”. She is undoubtedly the spirit of Kelipé, she treats it as her own child. Ms. Manzano is an inspiring and elegant dancer, powerful in her technique and with a profound understanding of pure Flamenco. She has lived this world since birth because she comes from a Spanish gypsy family, rooted in Jerez de la Frontera. Ms. Manzano has inherited the talent and inspiration from her grandmother “La Chata”. Ms. Manzano is teacher and choreographer of big flamenco productions, for example, with companies such as Cirque du Soleil.

Together, these two exceptional artists direct this unique and special Centre of Flamenco Art in Málaga. This is a meeting place for whom love Flamenco, national or foreigners. With this precedent the visitor is guaranteed an enjoyable experience of authentic Flamenco.

Kelipé produces a show from Thursday to Saturday, in a very intimate atmosphere, apparently simple and without technical support, in order to give importance to its show “Flamenco de ley”. All seats are located in front of the stage and have excellent visibility; that's why this show is so close to its audience.

They are composed by 4 artists troupe, the viewer perceives with clarity, knows or not Flamenco, the technique and expressivity of its components, its great experience, and its great complicity in scene. Due to the long trajectory they carry together. Juanma "El Canastero", consecrated Malagan percussionist has been part of Kelipé for 10 years, except when he is on tour. Together with "Bastián de los Bizcos", a singer with a lot of “solera” (experienced), complete a small cast who fills and overflows the stage, and nothing has to envy the great formations.

This cultural centre is a space for dialogue around Flamenco Art, and this is perceived in each of its recitals and in its workshops. They try to transmit and inform its audience and its students about what they are hearing, watching and experiencing. Its pedagogical activity is especially focused on the more receptive public and improving the understanding of the foreign public. An audience that, thanks to centers like Kelipé, are better documented in the history of Flamenco and in the purity of this art.

In their centre they carry out an intense pedagogical activity throughout the week. They are qualified teachers, and offer beginners and intermediate courses for Spanish guitar, flamenco dance and beat, with very defined methods for students to learn quickly and pleasantly. They also provide courses for professionals, helping them to better understand a good staging, due to the experience in international tours with the teachers of Kelipé.
