Flamenco Tablao Oslo

tradisjon og innovasjon

I samarbeid med Kulturhuset åpner vi sesongen i 2018 og tilbyr en scene/arena for profesjonelle og amatører. Barbalé kommer fra romani språket og betyr fantastisk ånd - delirium. Ingenting beskriver flamenco bedre.

På Barbalé fremmer vi kunst, musikk, dans, kulturelt mangfold og integrering gjennom flamenco. Vi vil at mange mennesker kjenner mer til, og kan nyte flamenco i alle sine former.

I Barbalé arrangerer vi et show og forskjellige Masterclasses med kjente artister, og til slutt ønsker vi også å invitere studenter til å være en del av flamenco-nettene.


Velkommen alle sammen. Vi ses snart for å dele gode øyeblikk!



Flamenco performing space for professionals and amateurs.

In collaboration with Kulturhuset we open the first season in 2018.

Barbalé comes from the romani language and means fantastic spirit-delirium. Nothing describes better flamenco.

At Barbalé we promote art, music, dance, cultural diversity and integration through flamenco. We want that many people get to know and enjoy flamenco in all its facets.

In Barbalé we organize a show and a variety of masterclasses with renowned artists and eventually we want to invite students to be part of flamenco nights as well.


Welcome everybody.
