One of the events that was held at the Palacio de Don Luis de la Cueva was the flamenco spring event, which is being developed by Provincial Federation of Penas Flamencas de Jaen. It also featured in the cycle of conferences titled 'Traces of Flamenco from Jaen'. The collaboration of the Flamenco Cultural Association of Ubeda was key to this initiative.
The conference was given by Manuel Bohorquez Casado (journalist and writer), who addressed the crowd on the topic 'Juan Valderrama flamenco encyclopedia.' Francisco Viedma, the president of the Federation, introduced him and he went on to speak about "one the greatest masters in Andalusian history", his teaching, and his generosity that few people can match.
The musical part of this instructive meeting featured Gema Jimenez on guitar and Rafael Montilla "Chaparro" on cante. Each embroidered a recital which was echoed by the applause.
