In recent years a new flamenco generation had appeared and grown in Slovakia reaching a considerable spread within both national and international flamenco activities. The band PONTE PARDO is no exception. In a well mixed eccentric drink for connoisseurs, together with their guests, they bring a fresh combination of flamenco – world – pop – jazz.
Ponte Pardo is a young pop-flamenco band of experienced and versatile artists that decided to create a soft, catchy, and slightly jazzy flamenco band. It has come to light in 2010, when a guitarist Martin Nováček invited all of them to cooperate with the crucial decision: Let´s call ourselves FGHDAS.. That was not accepted. Then the actual name won the selection :)
Ponte Pardo - flamenco in Bratislava
The repertoire contains their own creation as well as the arranged compositions of authors: Paco de Lucia, Vicente Amigo, Gerardo Nunez, and so forth. There are also arrangements to dance choreography with the lyrics mostly in Spanish language. Among many concert occasions, they got to the final in the local alternative and jazz contest and won with a song: Por.Lo.Bueno.

About concerts. Characteristic feature of their music is the contrast between soft flamenco themes and the harsh Andaluzian energy. Ponte Pardo participated in numerous shows, and some autonomous concerts. They had the opportunity to perform on different public events and balls, including Czecho-Slovakia´s got talent. They are on their way. If you wish to visit their nearest concert, just enter here to get the tickets :) 

Ponte Pardo also participated on the opening of Flamenco Dance School in Bratislava. There were plenty of such schools you could say. What is different in this case from most of others alike is the fact that it is not alike at all. The vision is to support human authenticity, playfulness and nature in flamenco or other dance on each and any of one´s rhythmic-motive levels.

With us you´ll take the road to a magical world of Andaluzian folklore and its modern stylizations in which some of you will even get to the point of ´duende´ (artist´s trance enchant) during the course. Ability to show the inner intimate world via authentic expose, preferably backed up by technical maturity takes years of training and tuning. Yet you have to start somewhere :) At our creative Flamenco.Dance.School courses you will meet yourselves. Your unknown, surprising, larky, creative and passionate hidden selves. We are here for all of you that believe the life is a mystery that wants to be revealed. In rhytm of a spanish blood horse, perhaps a slightly meditative state of mind, proudly and easily will you dance out a secret, so far undiscovered piece of your soul. Gradually you will reveal flamenco cuisine interpretative mysteries, and perhaps hear of strong influence of spanish gypsy traditions on current form of this beautiful art ..
