Nicknamed ‘the pearl’ of Jerez, flamenco singer Jesús Méndez learned the craft from master guitarist Gerardo Núñez. The Handelsbeurs already had the pleasure to hear Méndez with Aire Gitano, a collective from the gypsy districts of Jerez de la Frontera. He has become one of the most successful solo singers in Andalucia, at home in festive Flamenco Gitano and the more cerebral Spanish version.

New: Foyer Soirée
On some Monday evenings, the foyer of Handelsbeurs transformes in a cosy music club.
Each Foyer Soirée a musician or band introduces a new project. Listen to young Ghentian talent or established artists and begin your week with a bang.
