You won’t find acoustic flamenco more innovative, entertaining or inspiring.
This ensemble, showcasing the fantastic artistry of flamenco, is a magical collaboration commanded by the guitar wizardry of Chris Burton Jácome and enhanced by a vocalist, three flamenco dancers, a bassist and percussionist. Each show is a powerful interaction, unique and captivating.
Chris, with four CDs to his credit, is one of the country’s most in-demand flamenco guitarists and has scored several TV shows, including an Emmy Award-winning PBS special. His spellbinding solos and original songs have been featured in motion pictures.
Flamenco is choreographed energy, and as the ensemble’s haunting songs and beautiful melodies combine with the awesome movement and rhythm of dance, the art of flamenco explodes onstage. Audience shouts of “Olé!” and “Toma!” become part of the experience, part of the passion of flamenco.
“An impressive blend of technique and melody.” – Times Record News
