Flamenco Tuesday

3 Nov

GriegoJoin Classical Tuesdays in Old Town for an Evening of Flamenco music and dance! Bring along your family and friends; all ages are welcome.

On November 10, Classical Tuesdays in Old Town will feature the great Flamenco artist  Vicente Griego.  Griego, with “his deep, sonorous wails that seem to come from…deep within his soul”, is from New Mexico and has devoted his life to the study of cante Flamenco, the art of Flamenco singing. Joining Griego is New Orleans-born guitarist Gerardo Alcalá, one of the few foreigners to be respected as a full-fledged Flamenco artist by the gypsy Flamencos of Andalusia. Marisela MariselaFlamenco3Fleites Lear, popular dancer and teacher of Flamenco in the Tacoma area, will translate this intense, passionate music in some traditional Flamenco dances with her proud carriage and expressive use of the arms and rhythmic stamping of the feet.

Flamenco, traditional to the southern Andalusia region of Spain, includes cante (singing), toque (guitar playing), baile (dance) and jaleo (vocalizations and rhythmic clapping and finger snapping).
