Winners 2019

Dear participants of the “The Gold Centaurite” Contest of the XVIII International Flamenco Festival ¡Viva España! 2019!

First of all, on behalf of the entire organizing team of the Festival and the Flamenco House "Flamenquería" in Moscow, we would like to express to all of you our sincere thanks for having participated in the Contest. We appreciate your professionalism, discipline and patience, because many of you have to come from afar, wait your turn in the hall and behind the scenes.. Preparing an event of that level is not an easy task and we are very happy to contemplate year after year the evolution of the Festival, and also the progress of the technical and artistic level of our contestants.

We understand that not everyone has the opportunity to come to Moscow to encourage their friends and family in the final presentation, which is why we support the idea of opening the Festival panorama by transmitting online the contest "The Golden Centaurite", already for the second time. This year, the contest was followed by more than 8000 spectators from all over the country. We received many reactions and thanks. Musicians, singers and dancers! Thanks to all of you, the final round of the contest could be carried out for the public and the jury. We are pleased to congratulate the winners and the participants who received a special mention from the jury.

In the nomination for "Best Flamenco Dance Soloist" - Daria Samoilenko
In the nomination for "Best Musical Performance" - Maksim Melnikov
In the nomination for "Best performance of choreography" (duo) - Ekaterina Tishchenko and Lyubov Mamrak
In the nomination “Regional Award“ Best presentation of flamenco dance ”- Maria Titova
Special mention to Polina Baburina's presentation outside the contest.

The non-profit Foundation for the promotion and popularization of the cultural heritage of Spain and the Spanish-speaking countries "Duende", granted to all the winners selected by our jury, material prizes for an amount of 100,000 (one hundred thousand) rubles. The participant with special mention received a scholarship to take a week flamenco course in Flamenquería Sevilla (Spain), valid during 2020.
