For the 2015 Cafe Flamenco season premiere, Caminos Flamencos Music Director Jason McGuire “El Rubio” performs on guitar with singer Jose Cortes and percussionist Marlon Aldana. This power trio will create the musical and lyrical narrative to ground the steps of dancers Clara Rodriguez, Bianca Rodriguez and Melissa Cruz, and complement their dramatic exploration.
As Artistic Director Yaelisa explains, “The dialogue between a singer and guitarist, a dancer and a singer, a dancer and a guitarist or all three, is a highly-evolved interaction…Some of the most sophisticated interplay between musicians in the world happens when flamencos are interacting, improvising and generally burning a hole in each other’s consciousness. It is a spiritual communication.” Don’t miss this chance to see this incredible artistic exchange up close and personal at Cafe Flamenco!
Savory Spanish paella prepared onsite by Marcos Quezada of Patatas along with refreshing beverages will be available for purchase before the performance. Space is limited, so advance tickets are highly recommended. All ages are welcome.
