For One Night Only
After the sensational new Flamenco show ZIK’R, (LUKAS Award Finalist), created by and starring Karen Ruimy and Killing Joke bassist Youth, which traces the Flamenco journey from India to Spain, Karen is set to return to the stage to present a special night of Flamenco dance and Latin music in an East meets West celebratory Cabaret.
With a company of incredible dancers and musicians from London to Madrid, Karen harnesses the wild intensity of Flamenco, mixes it with a splash of the exotic and fuses this fiery concoction with smouldering Latin Music.

A celebrated spiritual writer Karen has published The Angels Metamorphosis and The Voice of an Angel with Quartet Books.
