The fusion between Jazz and Flamenco is undoubtedly one of the most exciting artistic expressions currently emerging from Europe.
The result, in the case of New Bojaira [Bo-hi-ra], is an original and engaging fusion, blending jazz improvisation with the excitement of flamenco rhythms and singing to create a powerful combination of energy and subtlety on stage, taking audiences on a fascinating multi-cultural excursion.

The core quartet is comprised of a combination of two highly regarded Spanish musicians from the home of flamenco, Andalusia, pianist Jesús Hernández and singer/flute player Alfonso Cid; and two long time veterans of the New York jazz scene, bassist Tim Ferguson and drummer Mark Holen. In addition, the band will join forces with virtuoso saxophonist Peter Brainin and the wonderful Flamenco dancer from Barcelona, Spain, Elisabet Torras.

As said by guest artist Claudia Valentina’s 2017 Latin Grammy award winning producer and percussionist, Felipe Fournier, “If you melded Chavela Vargas, Ella Fitzgerald and Gal Costa together, you’d find her voice there somewhere in between…”
Equal parts singer, dancer and jaranera, Claudia Valentina epitomizes the mélange parfait of modern New York as a California-born, New York-raised daughter of Mexican and Jamaican immigrants. Claudia Valentina will grace Drom’s stage accompanied by New Bojaira on a jazzy interpretation of her Latin American repertoire.  

New Bojaira releases a new album, Zorongo Blu. Featuring jazz legend Randy Brecker on the track titled "El Diablo Llama a Mi Puerta". New Bojaira’s debut release is a collection of original compositions and jazz standards with the addition of the traditional Spanish folk song Zorongo which, when given a bluesy jazz/flamenco treatment, becomes the vehicle for the band's unique virtuosity and is transformed into the album's title track. Each composition on the album has a distinct and original feel, from a flamenco framing of Thelonious Monk’s “Round Midnight” to Hernandez’s setting of two poems by Miguel de Cervantes “Jaleo del Celoso Extremeño” and “Farruca de Argel”. Jazz soloing is juxtaposed against the time-tested backdrop of flamenco rhythm.

“A great combination of Flamenco, Jazz and some interesting hard bop styles that I like quite a bit.”

Darek Mazzone-KEXP (Seattle)

 

“New Bojaira’s album is a classic celebration of the collision of all that is Moorish and Arabic in Spanish music with all that is African and American in Blues and Jazz.”

Raul da Gama-Latin Jazz Network

 

“… [Zororongo Blu] displays how adept and versatile the group is, how they can fit at home in multiple worlds without sounding like a parody of a distant genre.

Andy Jurki-PopMatter

Julia Patinella is a multilingual singer who currently resides between Seville, Spain and Brooklyn, NY. Through years of travel between Spain and Latin America, she developed as a Flamenco singer with a unique affinity for "Cantes de Ida y Vuelta" or "roundtrip songs" - subgenres born through the circular migrations of peoples between Spain, Latin America, and the Caribbean. Julia has studied Cante Flamenco at the Fundacion Cristina Hereen de Arte Flamenco in Seville, Spain as a recipient of the American Friends scholarship in 2011 and 2012. She performs regularly, in the U.S. and Europe, both in traditional Flamenco as well as original Flamenco - jazz fusion projects.

Her greatest musical influences are La Niña de Los Peines, Spain and Chavela Vargas, Mexico.

Andreas Arnold, guitarist, as an artist in a globalized world, Andreas Arnold expresses himself through a musical kaleidoscope that reflects the classical traditions of his homeland Germany, jazz from the US where he has been living for the last decade, and music from the Mediterranean, in particular, the Spanish art form of flamenco. While living between New York City and Andalusia, Spain, Arnold has participated in numerous productions as an instrumentalist, composer, improviser, and producer, touring on five continents. Arnold grew up in a family of classical musicians in southern Germany. He fell in love with Paco de Lucia as a teenager but went on to study jazz guitar at the conservatory of Amsterdam and later in NYC with Mike Stern, John Abercrombie, and Wayne Krantz before entering a period of complete dedication to the art of flamenco guitar. To date, Arnold has released four albums of original electric and acoustic music under his name. His latest album is titled “Odisea”.

Along with special diverse guest artists, the experience reveals the pure emotional essence of this popular Iberian music and dance form. Together they celebrate the expressive flamenco as it takes on a new character and exposes the audience to the warmth of the human spirit as expressed through music and dance.

$15 cover for mezzanine. FREE admission for CHILDREN 12 and under.

 

Featuring:

Juana Cala / Bailaora.

Maya de Silva / Bailaora.

Arturo Martínez / Guitarrista.
Alfonso Cid / Cantaor.

 

Alfonso Cid was born and raised in Sevilla, the heartland of flamenco music. He also had the opportunity of attending the activities of one the most significant flamenco clubs in Andalusia, the Peña Flamenca Torres-Macarena in Seville. Alfonso has toured extensively throughout the USA, Latin America, Israel, and Europe, and has just toured Spain last February of 2018 with the Jazz/Flamenco band New Bojaira by pianist Jesús Hernández from Granada, Spain.

 

Arturo Martínez began playing the electric guitar at the age of 13 in the tradition of Afro American music.  In playing the guitar it was logical that he would be drawn to flamenco “the black music” of Spain, because of its Gypsy, Arab and Jewish influences.  He has accompanied such famous artists as Jose Molina, Jose Greco, Chuni Amaya, Joaquin Fajardo, Concha Vargas, as well as Maria Alba, Pilar Rioja and Andrea del Conte. He has produced “Espiritu Gitano and Friends” a flamenco fusion show for the Lincoln Center Out of Doors festival in New York City, and was a consultant and co-producer for World Music Institute’s two concerts of Traditional Flamenco music with renowned artists El Torombo and Concha Vargas.

Juana Cala,Flamenco dancer and choreographer has been performing and teaching Flamenco in the United States and Europe for more than 20 years. She performed as a soloist in the María Benitez Dance Company under the direction of Mario Maya, and then went on to form her own company, “Ensemble Flamenco Juana Cala”, touring some of Europe’s most prestigious theatres for 16 years, with much critical acclaim. In 1999 Juana was professor of Flamenco in a Professional Arts Program for the European Union (a European equivalent to “The High School of Performing Arts”). She has been a resident Spanish Dance Professor in various universities across the United States. Juana has been a lead teaching artist for Flamenco Vivo for 10 years.

Maya de Silva Chafe was born in Santa Barbara and raised in Taos, NM. She graduated with a BFA in Theatre & Dance from UNM, Albq.  Choosing flamenco as her primary focus upon arrival in New York in 1987, Maya has performed as a soloist in small ensembles and as a company corps dancer and soloist with groups such as Maria Benitez, Carlota Santana, Andrea Del Conte and Flamenco Latino in tablaos and theatres in New York, New Mexico and California. Notable venues include The Joyce Theatre, DTW, Lincoln Center Out-of-Doors Festival and at Boston Pops for PBS Channel 13. Maya has choreographed and produced her own shows over the years: At the Kraine Theatre and PS 122, produced by the Field, at Third St Music School as part of their Faculty Artist Series, at Santa Barbara, California’s CenterStage and in New York she has her own pre-professional company, Las Chavalas del Barrio.

In 711 A.D., Arabs crossed Gibraltar into Iberia and for the next eight centuries a tremendous exchange took place. Great minds, ideas and art crossed the strait of Gibraltar (Jabal Tariq) back and forth and created a rich mix that transcended the boundaries of religion, ethnicity and language. It is in this isthmus, this land in between, that giants such as Averroes, Maimonides, Alfonso El Sabio and Zyriab emerged. Thirteen centuries later, five musicians and a dancer, who have been working together for a decade, strive to recreate this era through their music as immigrants in New York City. Both the time and the place of this encounter are significant as New York becomes the New Andalucia with an evening of convivencia.

Musicians:

Alfonso Cid (Vocals, Flute and Cajón) 
Bárbara Martínez (Flamenco Dance) 
Arturo Martínez (Guitar) 
Taoufiq Ben Amor (Vocals, Oud and Percussion) 
Ramzi El-Edlibi (Percussion and Dance)

Gurumbe: Afro-Andalusian Memories Film. Performance. Conversation - 3:00pm - 5:30pm
701 Arch Street
Philadelphia, PA 19106
USA
(215) 574-0380
Price: Free & Open to the Public

Flamenco is synonymous with Spanish culture. Yet, since its inception, theorists have sidelined the fundamental contribution of Afro-Andalusians to this art form. Commercial exploitation of the American colonies brought hundreds of Africans to Spain to be sold as slaves, forming a population which, over time, managed to gain space in a society wrought with racial prejudices.

 

Music and dance were a fundamental part of their expression and the most important affirmation of their identity. As the black population began to disappear from Spain in the late 19th century, so too did their contribution to this extraordinary art form. With the the timely, poignant documentary Gurumbe: Afro-Andalusian Memories, the full story of African influence on flamenco and Spanish culture is finally told.

 

Following the screening of Gurumbe, audiences will experience a live performance by rising international Flamenco artist Aliesha Bryan, winner of the 2016 Flamenco Certamen USA. The program will conclude with a conversation and reflection led by Dr. Brenda Dixon Gottschild, Professor Emerita of Dance Studies at Temple University, and author of The Black Dancing Body: A Geography From Coon to Cool. Along with Aliesha Bryan, Dr. Gottschild will be joined in conversation by Flamenco artist and scholar, K. Meira Goldberg, author of the newly released book, Sonidos Negros: On the Blackness of Flamenco.

Studio Arte
Flamenco Workshop for Dancers - 2:00 pm to 3:30 pm
346 Main Avenue, 3rd Floor
Norwalk, CT 06851
+1(203)613-2464
Price: $35 (until January 31st), $40 (February 1st-3rd)

Organized by flamenco dancer and teacher Yohanna Escamilla and Studio Arte in Norwalk, Connecticut.

Flamenco is a music and dance form that originated in Andalusia, in the south of Spain about 200 years ago.  It encompasses a great number of styles with different origins, melodies, rhythms and types of verses or stanzas which have also their own dance forms.

What we’ll do in this lecture/demonstration is to give the audience the tools necessary to understand and simplify something that at first may seem overwhelming.  There are several traditional patterns that repeat within the verses and the rhythms as well as the cord progressions of each style.  There are also connections you can make between different styles that will help you realize that after all it is not that complicated. 

Objectives:

  1. To give the audience an understanding of flamenco that goes beyond the stereotypes and clichés.  Exposing its universal value as an artistic and cultural expression.
  2. Analyze flamenco in depth as a genre in a participatory, casual and fun environment.
  3. Explore its Arabic, Moorish, Jewish, African, Hispanic-American and Gypsy roots within the context of the traditional folk and popular music of Spain from the Renaissance, to the Baroque and the Romantic eras.

 

This lecture/demonstration can be tailored to the needs and expectations of different types of audience.  From audiences that already have had exposure to flamenco or complete novices.

New Andalucia at Brooklyn Maqam Hang - 8:00 pm
900 Fulton St
Brooklyn, NY 11238
USA
+1(347) 763-2537
Price: $10 cover charge

This week we present a very special night of music and dance featuring New Andalucia.

8pm - New Andalucia
9pm - Open Jam Session
Admission: $10
Doors at 7:30pm

In 711 A.D., Arabs crossed Gibraltar into Iberia and for the next eight centuries a tremendous exchange took place. Great minds, ideas and art crossed the strait of Gibraltar (Jabal Tariq) back and forth and created a rich mix that transcended the boundaries of religion, ethnicity and language. It is in this esthemus, this land in between, that giants such as Averroes, Maimonides, Alfonso El Sabio and Zyriab emerged. Thirteen centuries later, six musicians and dancers, who have been working together for a decade, strive to recreate this era through their music as immigrants in New York City. Both the time and the place of this encounter are significant as New York becomes the New Andalucia with an evening of convivencia.

Featuring:
Alfonso Cid (Vocals, Flute and Cajón)
Arturo Martínez (Guitar)
Bárbara Martínez (Vocals and Dance)
Taoufiq Ben Amor (Vocals, Oud and Percussion)
Ramzi Eledlebi (Percussion and Dance)
Zafer Tawil (Oud, Violin)

Performers Bios:

Alfonso Cid was born and raised in Seville, the heartland of Flamenco music. His mother, an amateur singer from Triana, a Flamenco enclave in Seville, and his grandfather, an aficionado of Flamenco were his earliest influences. Since 1987 he also participated in performances at of one the most significant Flamenco clubs in Andalusia, the Peña Flamenca Torres-Macarena. Since his arrival in New York in 1997, Alfonso has played with the majority of Flamenco artists throughout the country, performing and touring in the tri-state area, Washington D.C., Chicago, Detroit, Kentucky, Toronto, Ottawa, British Columbia, Mexico, Puerto Rico, the United Kingdom and Spain. From 1990 to 1995 Alfonso studied at the Seville Conservatory of Music where he received classical training in flute and music theory and most recently with maestro Paco Taranto and the new talent of Rocío Márquez and Elena Morales at the Cristina Heeren Foundation for Flamenco Art in Sevilla. He released his first CD in 2006, Flamenco de vuelta e ida with his own Flamenco fusion project “Gazpacho Andalú.”

Bárbara recently made her debut at Carnegie (Weill) Hall debut in her new Flamenco Latin Jazz project.

Arturo Martínez began playing the electric guitar at the age of 13 in the tradition of Afro American music. In playing the guitar it was logical that he would be drawn to flamenco "the black music" of Spain, because of its Gypsy, Arab and Jewish influences. He has accompanied such famous artists as Jose Molina, Jose Greco, Chuni Amaya, Joaquin Fajardo, Concha Vargas, as well as Maria Alba, Pilar Rioja and Andrea Del Conte. He produces the annual New York Flamenco Festival at the Thiasos Restaurant in New York City, and was a consultant and co-producer for World Music Institute's two concerts of Traditional Flamenco music with renowned artists El Torombo and Concha Vargas.

Ramzi has traveled extensively as a sought-after performer of Middle Eastern folk dance, performing and teaching throughout Europe, Asia, and the Middle East. Not only does Ramzi impress audiences with his virtuosity, passion, and knowledge of Arab-word dances and their cultural context, he is also an accomplished percussion player and teacher of tabla, riq, and frame drum. In addition, he is a respected Arts and Education teaching artist and leads public programs throughout the East Coast as Artistic Director of Dance Around the World. Eldibi continues researching and studying dance and music forms and most recently has focused on music and dance of the Arabian Penisula. He is finishing a book which transcribes and analyzes the Penisula’s complex rhythmic patterns and song.


Zafer Tawil is a virtuoso on ‘oud, violin, and qanun, and a master of Arabic percussion. Zafer has performed in concerts across the country, including performances with numerous musicians ranging from Sting to Arab music virtuosos Chab Mami, Simon Shaheen, Bassam Saba and George Ziadeh, to avant-garde composer/performer Elliot Sharpe. He was a featured composer and performer in acclaimed director Jonathan Demme's Oscar-nominated film Rachel Getting Married and is composing and performing for Demme’s next film project, Zeitoun, based on Dave Eggers’ book about Abdulrahman Zeitoun’s post-Hurricane Katrina odyssey. Zafer has worked on many collaboration concerts involving classical Indian and Persian music as well as arab/jazz fusion. Born and raised in East Jerusalem, he has held workshops on Arab music at many institutions and universities across the United States.


Taoufiq Ben Amor is a Tunisian vocalist, percussionist and oud player. Taoufiq started learning percussion at an early age, then learned the Malouf (Andalusian repertoire) and sang with ensembles and choirs for many years. Fifteen years ago, he began studying the oud and the Arabic maqam system with various teachers such as Mohamed Labbad, Jamal Aslan and Simon Shaheen. For more than a decade, Taoufiq has been an active performer in the US and Canada and played in various venues including the Joseph Papp Theater, Symphony Space, Cooper Union, the Knitting Factory as well as several campuses.

An Evening with Gurumbé: Flamenco Sounds of Afro-Hispanic Memory

with Miguel Ángel Rosales and Yinka Esi Graves
Sunday, November 4, 2018 - 5:00pm

 

Stimulating an ongoing debate about the importance of the African diaspora in founding the modern Iberian and Latin American nations, Miguel Ángel Rosales’s film Gurumbé: Afro-Andalusian Memories explores the subtle but certain interconnections between the music of Senegal, Portugal, Spain, and Mexico. In traveling these countries, Rosales sheds new light on the oft-ignored influence of people of African descent on Flamenco, a music central to Spanish national identity. Following the film, acclaimed dancer Yinka Esi Graves will join Rosales in conversation. At 7pm in the Performance Penthouse, join us for a tablao, or flamenco show in which Graves will dance along to a performance by singer Alfonso Mougaburo and guitarist Guillermo Tarroux.

(Miguel Ángel Rosales, Spain/Portugal/Senegal/Mexico, 2016, 72 min., DCP)

Miguel Ángel Rosales earned degrees in anthropology and engineering before turning to the arts, studying music at the Conservatory of Granada and filmmaking at the Escuela Internacional de Cine y Televisión de Cuba (EICTV). He has scripted and directed documentaries in Spain and Cuba including La Maroma (2011), Atrapados al vuelo (2012), and Luz en los Márgenes (2013).

Yinka Esi Graves is a British Flamenco dancer who studied at the world-renowned school Amor de Dios with artists such as La Lupi, Manuel Reyes, and Pepa Molina. Her dance explores the links between flamenco and other forms of expression. In 2014 Yinka co-founded dotdotdot dance. Devoted to engaging young people from different backgrounds in dance, she teaches regularly in London, Manchester, Seville, and Madrid.

Presented by the Hispanic and Luso-Brazilian Student Committee, Department of Romance Languages and Literatures, Center for Latin American Studies, Film Studies Center, Department of Cinema and Media Studies, Department of Music, and the Logan Center for the Arts.

Celebrated Jazz Vocalist Judi Silvano’s joyous discovery of the

“Dueto Andaluz” Flamenco group several years ago in Mexico, inspired this evening’s music and dance collaboration. She joins Grammy Winner Joe Lovano in presenting original compositions and improvisations with this special ensemble.

Featuring:  Joe Lovano (reeds), Judi Silvano (vocals)  and

special guests “Dueto Andaluz”, with music by Lovano, Silvano, Albenez, Bizet, Alegrias

Dueto Andaluz
http://duetoandaluz.com/


“Dueto Andaluz” Flamenco - direct from Puerto Morelos, Mexico - features guitarist, composer and arranger, Daniel Pimentel, and bailaora (Flamenco dancer), Natalia Loza, a master of castanets, shawl and fan. The multidisciplinary art of the Andalusian Gypsy culture of southern part of Spain is demonstrated through music, singing and flamenco dance. Dueto Andaluz suits the style and repertoire of Flamenco and plays also Jazz, Classical and Mexican music, with a Mediterranean and Andalusian feel.

Joe Lovano
http://www.joelovano.com/

"Move over, Pavarotti; the greatest Italian tenor ... isn't Luciano, but Lovano."

- Will Friedwall/Village Voice

Most jazz musicians are flexible: it’s a philosophical requirement of the job....Joe Lovano is an extreme case, moving toward universality.


Long ago he developed a tenor saxophone sound for his temperament. His starting place is bebop’s complex language, but he seems to be listening to something underneath language and style, something that could be well illustrated by jazz but isn’t specific to it. He’s good with a particular rhythm, or a structure, or a set of changes, but he doesn’t need any of it. And so an ideal Joe Lovano performance might be one that sounds good with New York’s advanced-harmony killer elite, but that could be effectively cut and pasted over a trap beat or a string quartet or scale exercises or traffic sounds.

Kids Are Pretty People (Live At Newport)

Judi Silvano
http://judisilvano.com/

“Vocalist Silvano has guts and takes big risks singing in the new music arena, creating original music and functioning as an instrument in the ensemble”.

- Kirk Silsbee / Downbeat Magazine

The voice of Judi Silvano, whose wordless vocals mesh beautifully in both ensemble and in improvised passages with husband, Joe Lovano, is versatile enough to present The Jazz Standards, or the unique work of Thelonious Monk, or of American women composers, or her own originals about the dance of life. Silvano, a fearless experimenter in world of jazz vocals, shares her joy, bringing inspiration to every collaborative effort through her skilled, "other-worldly" improvisational techniques and sensitive listening.

One of the year’s most anticipated musical celebrations, Guitar Under the Stars, returns to West Hartford – and this year there is even more to celebrate! Founder and acclaimed guitarist Daniel Salazar is proud to announce that 2018 will mark the 25th anniversary of what has become an annual end-of-summer tradition for music lovers of all ages. This large-scale outdoor concert, which combines Salazar’s bold and original compositions with his ensemble of international musicians, will be held on Saturday, Sept. 8, 2018 (rain date Sunday, Sept. 9, 2018) at 7:30 p.m., with pre-festival activities beginning at 4 p.m. on the University of Saint Joseph’s beautiful outdoor quad.

Salazar founded Guitar Under the Stars in 1993 with a group of eager young musicians, performing on a portable trailer called the “Showmobile Stage” at the Hartford Riverfront for a small but enthusiastic audience. Salazar’s goal was to share his love for the guitar and the beautiful music it creates. 25 years later, Guitar Under the Stars is an ever-growing outdoor concert that draws audiences of thousands to hear Salazar’s original music and brilliant orchestral arrangements.

This September Salazar will premiere new compositions and perform selections from his popular original repertoire that fuses Spanish guitar with Latin and World rhythms. Guitar Under the Stars will include a remarkable array of artists: the Daniel Salazar Ensemble, Flamenco singer Alfonso Cid from Spain; and top players from Connecticut’s own Hartford Symphony Orchestra in a sensational, multicultural celebration of Spanish and Latin melodies and rhythms.

“Guitar Under the Stars has become a major area tradition, now bringing thousands of music lovers to USJ’s idyllic campus for a magical evening of community, picnics and, of course, the stars,” says Autorino Center director Steven Raider Ginsburg.

Admission is free of charge. Location is on the main Quad, University of Saint Joseph, 1678 Asylum Ave, West Hartford, 4-7pm Festival Activities, 7:30pm Performance. Audience is encouraged to bring their own lawn chairs or blankets.

About The Show

Back by popular demand! Ochre House Theater Presents

PICASSO: MATADOR DE MÁLAGA written and directed by Matthew Posey

Embark on a journey into the rich mind of Pablo Picasso, one of the 20th century’s most iconic and famous painters. With a mind filled with Saints, Monsters and Lovers, Picasso was driven to express his unique view of the world into a new form and style of painting that changed the face of art. His inspiration came from the vibrant world around him. He was tortured by the loss of his little sister from cholera as a child, but from his adventures from Málaga to Paris and around the world, and from his torrid love affairs and marriages, Picasso read the world as a Matador reads the movement of a Bull. World class Flamencos, Antonio Arrebola (Bailaor) and Delilah Arrebola (Bailaora), Alfonso Cid (Cantaor), Calvin Hazen (Guitarrista), and an incredible ensemble of some of the best actors in Dallas, create a visual and aural feast of vignettes that paint the unforgettable life force of the true Matador of Málaga, Pablo Picasso.

Opening Night ~Please join us for a catered reception after the show. 6.20.18.

In 711 A.D., Arabs crossed Gibraltar into Iberia and for the next eight centuries a tremendous exchange took place. Great minds, ideas and art crossed the strait of Gibraltar (Jabal Tariq) back and forth and created a rich mix that transcended the boundaries of religion, ethnicity and language. It is in this isthmus, this land in between, that giants such as Averroes, Maimonides, Alfonso El Sabio and Zyriab emerged. Thirteen centuries later, five musicians and a dancer, who have been working together for a decade, strive to recreate this era through their music as immigrants in New York City. Both the time and the place of this encounter are significant as New York becomes the New Andalucia with an evening of convivencia.

Alfonso Cid (Vocals, Flute and Cajón)

Nueva York Flamenco City presents.

 

Alfonso Cid was born and raised in Sevilla, the heartland of flamenco music. He also had the opportunity of attending the activities of one the most significant flamenco clubs in Andalusia, the Peña Flamenca Torres-Macarena in Seville. Alfonso has toured extensively throughout the USA, Latin America, Israel and Europe, and has just toured Spain last February of 2018 with the Jazz/Flamenco band the New York Bojaira Project by pianist Jesús Hernández from Granada, Spain.

 

Xianix Barrera, a native New Yorker born to Puerto Rican and Dominican parents, had her first exposure to music and dance at an early age with studies in ballet, modern, jazz and percussion. Xianix began flamenco studies in New York and deepened them in Spain with distinguished masters including Andres Peña, Concha Vargas, Carmen Ledesma and Raquel Heredia among others. She has worked and performed with such prominent artists as Isabel Bayón, Ángel Muñoz, Soledad Barrio and Juan Ogalla. 

 

Arturo began playing the electric guitar at the age of 13 in the tradition of Afro American music.  In playing the guitar it was logical that he would be drawn to flamenco “the black music” of Spain, because of its Gypsy, Arab and Jewish influences.  He has accompanied such famous artists as Jose Molina, Jose Greco, Chuni Amaya, Joaquin Fajardo, Concha Vargas, as well as Maria Alba, Pilar Rioja and Andrea del Conte. He has produced “Espiritu Gitano and Friends” a flamenco fusion show for the Lincoln Center Out of Doors festival in New York City, and was a consultant and co-producer for World Music Institute’s two concerts of Traditional Flamenco music with reknowned artists El Torombo and Concha Vargas.

 

Luis Ossa, born in Medellín, Colombia, where he studied music theory and music management. He has more than 15 years of experience as a percussionist. He got introduced to flamenco on 2005 as an accompanist of flamenco dance and song thanks to such master as Israel Heredia, Israel Suarez “Piraña” and Ramón Porrina.

Dientes de Caramelo (Candy Teeth) is a rock band where indie rock meets the vocal
sounds from the south of Spain. The project started taking shape in 2008 when flamenco
guitarist Jed Miley began working with flamenco singer Alfonso Cid at New York clubs.

Soon they discovered they shared a common ambition to combine flamenco vocals with
rock music. Jed had grown up in Seattle listening to the rock bands from the local scene
but he never found a way to fuse the two until he began working with Alfonso.

Rock guitarist, also from Seattle, Kevin “Martillo” Viner, brought even more of a rocking
aspect to the project. Guitarist Chris Morell from Queens, New York, is a wizard, his
guitar swells come from a magic wand of emotions. Bassist Peter Teresi from New
Jersey is a jazz fusion master who will be grooving with jazz drummer Mark Holen, who
will be our guest artist on this very special Dientes de Caramelo reunion night.

USA
+1(212)505-1808
Price: $35, $25 groups 15+

Al Margen productions are deeply rooted in tradition, but at the same time, they explore issues that bring original interpretations. In Duende Adentro, the Garcia Lorca concept of “duende” takes a new meaning. Distancing themself from the passionate stereotype which traditionally is associated with el duende, María de los Ángeles and Ryan Rockmore re-imagine the concept inspired by the essay “La teoría del duende” -Duende’s Theory- and poems from Divan del Tamarit by Federico García Lorca. Within this space of uncertainty, the acknowledgment that duende can only exist with the realization of our impending death becomes both unsettling and clear. 

Duende Adentro was conceived by internationally renowned Flamenco artists: bailaores María de los Ángeles and Ryan Rockmore, cantaor Alfonso Cid, the musicians Raphael Brunn, Lisa Fairey and Nathan Herrera, along with actor Adriana Sananes.

Nueva York Flamenco City presents.

Directly from Mexico City hails Ricardo Osorio. Sensational flamenco dancer of spotless technique and virtuoso footwork. During his professional career he has perfected his art in Spain with artists such as Cristobal Reyes, La Tati, María Juncal, Merche Esmeralda, Rafael Campallo and Alfonso Losa, to name a few.

The "soniquete" (flamenco swing) of Raphael Brunn on flamenco guitar is one of a kind. His public debut playing Flamenco guitar was in the opening festivities of the 1992 Olympics in Barcelona, Spain. Raphael has performed with many of the artists who initially inspired his dedication to the flamenco tradition. He worked with El Farruquito and El Torombo in the production of Incognito, in Frankfurt, Germany. Now based in New York City, Raphael performs with various Flamenco artists and is currently working on his second CD.

Alfonso Cid was born and raised in Sevilla, the heartland of flamenco music. He also had the opportunity of attending the activities of one the most significant flamenco clubs in Andalusia, the Peña Flamenca Torres-Macarena in Seville. Alfonso has toured extensively throughout the USA, Latin America, Israel and Europe, and has just toured Spain last February of 2018 with the Jazz/Flamenco band the New York Bojaira Project by pianist Jesús Hernández from Granada, Spain.

The New York Bojaira Project at The Cornelia Street Cafe - 8:00 & 9:30pm
29 Cornelia St.
New York, NY 10014
+1(212)989-9319
Price: $10 cover plus $10 minimum

In May 1977 three artists stumbled across a tiny storefront in the heart of Greenwich Village and thought it the perfect place to open a café. For two months they scraped and sanded, plumbed and plastered, and did the intricate dance one does with the authorities who live beyond the Village, and on the weekend of July 4, 1977, perpetually 201 years behind the US, they opened the Cornelia Street Café. Over the last thirty years it has quintupled in size, it has won numerous awards both for its food and for its performances, but it has remained at heart an artists’ café.

The New York Bojaira Project is honored to perform in this fantastic Greenwich Village venue.

The fusion between Jazz and Flamenco is one of the most exciting musical and artistic expressions emerging in the world today. The result, in the case of The New York Bojaira Project, is a powerful combination of energy and subtlety on stage. An original and versatile fusion, blending the depth and intensity of jazz harmony and improvisation, with the excitement of flamenco rhythms.

Line up:

Jesús Hernández, piano
Tim Ferguson, double bass

Price: $15 advance, $20 at the door

“Flamenco is synonymous with Spanish culture. Yet, since its inception, theorists have sidelined the fundamental contribution of Afro-Andalusians to this art form.”

Gurumbé: Afro-Andalusian Memories, a feature-length documentary from anthropologist Miguel Ángel Rosales, explores the contribution of Afro-Andalusians to flamenco as the art form developed. Gurumbé (72 min, in Spanish with English subtitles) has won numerous awards in the festival circuit and it is currently premiering around the world.

Join us for this special event in La Nacional's beautiful, intimate performance space. There will be a screening of the film with the director, and a flamenco performance by dancer Yinka Ese Graves who is featured in the film, guitarists Guilhem Tarroux and singer Alfonso Cid. There will also be a round table discussion with the performers and the director, moderated by K. Meira Goldberg. In addition to organizing numerous conferences and flamenco events with the Foundation for Iberian Music, Goldberg is the author of Flamenco on the Global Stage and Sonidos Negros: On the Blackness of Flamenco (forthcoming, Oxford Univ. Press).

Beverages will be available at a cash bar. This event is all ages.

Nueva York Flamenco City - 8:30pm and 10:30pm
40-19 Gleane St.
Elmhurst, NY 11373
USA
(347)808-0518
Price: $12 cover charge for mezzanine. FREE admission for CHILDREN 12 and under.

You don’t have to travel to Spain to experience flamenco. Ever since the Spanish bolero school dancer Fanny Elssler set foot on the New York stage in 1840 New York City has had a vibrant flamenco scene.

This time “Nueva York Flamenco City” is comprised of singer and flautist Alfonso Cid, flamenco guitarist Arturo Martínez and dancer Isabel del Día.

Alfonso is a well-known artist in the USA and abroad. Fresh from a tour of Spain with the New York Bojaira Jazz Flamenco Project, he has also toured Israel with the Jerusalem Andalusian Orchestra, and has traveled all over the world with famous bachata artist Romeo Santos.

Isabel del Día was introduced to Flamenco at Bard College and has been awarded “The Bard Theater and Dance Award” (2004), scholarships to attend the (2008) “Cultural Traditions Program” at Jacob’s Pillow, and “III Ciclo Dedicado a la Formación Completa del Baile Flamenco” (2010) at the historic Amor de Dios Studios in Madrid, Spain. Isabel has worked with Carmen Ledesma, Jose Mendez, Almudena Serrano, Elena Andujar, Ismael Fernández, Sonia Olla, and Ángel Muñoz and is part of the New York ensemble at Flamenco Vivo Carlota Santana. Isabel has toured and performed with Soledad Barrio and Noche Flamenca at the Joyce Theater in New York City, and Joe’s Pub at the Public Theater, among other venues.

Guitarist Arturo Martínez began playing the electric guitar at the age of 13 in the tradition of Afro American music.  In playing the guitar, it was logical that he would be drawn to flamenco “the black music” of Spain, because of its Gypsy, Arab and Jewish influences.  He has accompanied such famous artists as Jose Molina, Jose Greco, Chuni Amaya, Joaquin Fajardo, Concha Vargas, as well as Maria Alba, Pilar Rioja and Andrea del Conte. He has produced “Espiritu Gitano and Friends” a flamenco fusion show for the Lincoln Center Out of Doors festival in New York City, and was a consultant and co-producer for World Music Institute’s two concerts of Traditional Flamenco music with reknowned artists El Torombo and Concha Vargas.

ALFONSO CID-Flamenco Vocals and Flute.
Alfonso Cid was born and raised in Sevilla, the heartland of flamenco music. His mother, an amateur singer from Triana, a flamenco enclave in Seville, and his grandfather, an aficionado of flamenco, were his earliest influences. He also had the opportunity of attending the activities of one the most significant flamenco clubs in Andalusia, the Peña Flamenca Torres-Macarena in Seville. Alfonso enrolled at the Seville Conservatory in 1990 to study flute and music theory. He was awarded two scholarships to attend the intensive summer course at the Cristina Heeren Foundation for Flamenco Art on July 2007 and 2008 in Sevilla. He had the honor of recording backing vocals in the song titled “Mi Santa” on the album Formula Vol. 1 by popular Latin artist Romeo Santos in which the great flamenco guitarist Tomatito was a featured guest artist. Alfonso has toured extensively throughout the USA, Latin America, Israel and Europe, and has just toured Spain last July and August of 2017 with his newest Jazz/Flamenco band, the New York Bojaira Project by pianist Jesús Hernández from Granada, Spain. He released his first CD titled “Flamenco de vuelta e ida” on 2006 with his own Flamenco fusion project Gazpacho Andalú and flamenco guitarist Arturo Martínez. He has also released an album with the Spanish Indie Rock project Dientes de Caramelo titled Pulpo (Octopus) in March of 2012 as well as three new singles throughout the summer of 2015.

Price: $10

I'm so excited about this show. Guy Mintus is a very talented and original pianist. I'll have the pleasure to share the stage with his trio in two songs we are putting together for this show.

Here is a description of the show by Guy: "It’s been a while since i’ve been or played in town. Since the last time many things changed. Having the opportunity to present an evening at the Williamsburg Music Center I thought what would be the most needed and appropriate statement to make. It gathered into the concept of the next show that comes to celebrate LOVE & DIVERSITY, simple as that. Along with the Trio, we will be guesting 3 phenomenal vocalists from very different traditions; Jazz, Carnatic & Flamenco. Together we will be tapping into the mutual core of expressing love through music. 
We hope that you join us to participate in this healing endeavor and do share the event with if you would!"

(214)826-6273
Price: $25 at the door

Ochre House Theater & The 2016 Dallas Flamenco Festival

are pleased to present the revival of an Ochre House Theater original, BUÑUEL DESCENDING. Written and directed by Matthew Posey, BUÑUEL DESCENDING is the story of the inspired passion of some of the finest free thinkers of the twentieth century, filled with fervent Flamenco dance, puppetry, acting, music, and song. Running June 22 – July 2, 2016

For the last eight seasons, OCHRE HOUSE THEATER has been proud to be collaborators with THE DALLAS FLAMENCO FESTIVAL, providing exciting Flamenco Plays such as PERRO Y SANGRE, which went on to perform at Teatro LATEA in New York City, and EL CONDE DRÁCULA, which had a successful run in 2013 at Ochre House Theater. These Flamenco Plays have been special nights of incredible Flamenco and theatricality from world-class artists and actors. This year, we are thrilled to announce our collaborative work with 2016 DALLAS FLAMENCO FESTIVAL, premiering June 22 – July 2: a revival of the hit, BUÑUEL DESCENDING, written and directed by Matthew Posey with choreography by Delilah and Antonio Arrebola and introducing new guest artist Alfonso Cid.

Luis Buñuel was one of the first pioneering filmmakers of the 20th century. His first film (circa 1929), ANDALOU CHIEN (Andalusian Dog), was a collaborative piece with his good friend Salvador Dali, and has been recognized as the first Surrealist film. His career began in Paris in the 1920s where he started a film revolution, being one of the first filmmakers to realize cinema as an art form.

BUÑUEL DESCENDING is the story of Luis Buñuel (ANTONIO ARREBOLA), his wife Jeanne Buñuel (DELILAH ARREBOLA) Salvador Dali (CHRISTOPHER SYKES)and poet Federico Garcia Lorca (IVAN JASSO) forming their own artistic fraternity called The Order of Toledo. In BUÑUEL DESCENDING, Luis Buñuel (founder of the Order) descends into debauchery where he unleashes his talent as a storyteller through the art of cinema. In a small tavern, in Madrid, Buñuel weaves the ancient story of Orpheus with the new eyes of the early 20th century, sparking the Surrealist movement. BUÑUEL DESCENDING is a story of the inspired passion of some of the finest free thinkers of the 20th century, filled with fervent dance, puppetry, acting, music, and song. Tickets available now. Running June 22 – July 2, 2016.

THE ART OF FLAMENCO - 3:00PM
225 South Street
Williamstown, MA 01267
USA
(413)458-2303
Price: Member $22 General Admission $25

One of Spain's greatest flamenco dancers, Belén Maya, presents a lecture and demonstration of the art of flamenco with guitarist José Luis Rodríguez and cantaor (singer) Alfonso Cid.

Belén Maya, daughter of two great flamenco artists, Carmen Mora and Mario Maya, began her dance studies in Madrid. Trained at a young age, she continued her studies in Seville with Anunciación Rueda “La Tona” and started performing at several prestigious flamenco shows, such as Café de Chinitas and Corral de la Pacheca in Madrid and Los Gallos in Seville. After spending a year at the Spanish National Ballet, she joined the Mario Maya Company, where within three years she became the principal dancer and répétiteur of the company. She was invited by renowned Spanish film director Carlos Saura to represent the new generation of flamenco in his film Flamenco. Belén’s performance in this film would become a milestone in flamenco dance as interpreted by women, opening new avenues in terms of concept, musicality, movement, and costuming. Transparent and in balance with tradition, Belén is characterized by her free, creative, daring, restless and open-minded style.

Award winning flamenco guitarist and composer José Luis Rodríguez began his training at age nine in the local Peñas Flamencas and soon began performing in the "tablaos" (flamenco clubs) alongside the famous gypsy guitarist El Niño Miguel several nights a week during his teenage years. In 1995 he appeared in Felix Grande's book Agenda Flamenca as one of the twenty best guitarists in Spain. He has performed in numerous countries such as Belgium, Holland, Italy, Morocco, Turkey, Israel, Germany, England, Uruguay, Argentina, Mexico, Japan, Canada, and the United States. Among his most notable works are compositions created for Ballet Cristina Hoyos, Ballet Flamenco de Andalucía, Belén Maya, Juan Carlos Lerida, Ramon Oller, and the 2015 collaboration with LA Philharmonic and Maestro Gustavo Dudamel in collaboration with Antonio Canales, Farruquito, and Siudy Garrido in Amor Brujo.

Cantaor Alfonso Cid, a graduate of the Seville Conservatory (flute and music theory), was born and raised in Seville, the heartland of flamenco music. His mother, an amateur singer from Triana, a flamenco enclave in Seville, and his grandfather, an aficionado of flamenco, were his earliest influences. Since 1987, he has attended one the most significant flamenco clubs in Andalusia, the Peña Flamenca Torres-Macarena in Seville, and studies with some of the most important figures in the world of flamenco in Spain. Cid regularly performs in flamenco productions, including appearances in Carnegie Hall’s Weill Hall, Lincoln Center Out of Doors Festival, Symphony Space, La Mama Theater and Town Hall in New York City, Caramoor Center of Music and Arts, and Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival, as well as London’s Royal Albert Hall, Sala Covarrubias in Mexico City, and Spanish Repertory Theater in New York with flamenco dancer Pilar Rioja. Cid teaches flamenco singing in New York and also lectures on flamenco music and history. 

Belén Maya’s appearance at the Clark is sponsored in part by Sally Grossman and HH Hill Realty.

La Generación del 16 - 8:00PM

New York, NY 10003
USA
Price: $20-$25

Who's who: Ryan Rockmore, Mary Baird, Xianix Barrera, Carol Basilio, Edu Duyos, Alfonso Cid [singer], Cristian Puig [guitarist]

La Generación del 16 seeks to bring new voices to the New York flamenco scene. While a great deal of impressive traditional work is performed and created in this city, there are few opportunities for flamenco artists to experiment, perform innovative choreographies, and share their contemporary concepts with the community. Funding this show will allow the collective of five dancers and three musicians to stage these works and further New York's contribution to the future of flamenco. Support helps create costumes, pay artists, rent the theater, and have rehearsal space.

This collaborative, experimental project arose out of a questioning of the meaning behind thecafés cantantes in the late-19th and early-20th centuries. Such locales were modeled after Parisian cabarets and can be compared to American Vaudeville theaters, as well. These locations had an important influence on flamenco through the development of codified, organized palos and defined movement aesthetics for both men and women. By taking flamenco out of private parties and familial settings, the art form began to take on a truly performative nature and exacerbate a performer-spectator relationship with set choreographies and elaborate costumes. The dancers were typically female, bailaoras, accompanied (or led) by male singers, cantaores, and guitarists.

The show also uses the Generaciones del [19]27 and [18]98 as foundational influences because of their desire to collaborate in groups, refer to classic or historical works, and find balances between the intellectual/sentimental and traditional/experimental aspects of art. La Generación del 16 intends to question stereotypes and traditions of the art form while still respecting its legacy and history, both globally and locally.

 Shows at 8:00PM on February 25th through the 28th.

New Andalucía: Arab meets Flamenco - 8:00 PM

Zafer Tawil (Oud and Violin)

In 711 A.D., Arabs crossed Gibraltar into Iberia and for the next eight centuries a tremendous exchange would take place. Great minds, ideas and art would cross the strait back and forth and create a rich mix that transcended the boundaries of religion, ethnicity and language. It is in this esthemus, this land in between, that giants such as Averroes, Maimonides, Alfonso El Sabio and Zyriab would emerge. Thirteen centuries later, tonight's musicians strive to recreate this era through their music as immigrants in New York City. Both the time and the place of this encounter are significant as New York becomes the New Andalucia with an evening of convivencia during the Fería de Sevilla.

Dear Flamenco aficionados,

My on going flamenco singing classes at Flamenco Latino are more like a gathering of friends having a good time singing flamenco than anything else.  This doesn't mean we don't take it seriously.  I make special emphasis on vocal and proper breathing technique.  Hands out of the lyrics and their English translations are given to the students and no previous knowledge of Spanish language is necessary.

This week we will continue working on "soleá por bulerías".

¡Vámonos que nos vamos!  Let's go!!

Barnstable Performing Arts Center
Cape Cod Symphony Orchestra-Passport to Spain - 3:00 PM
Yarmouth Port, MA 02675
Price: From $24 to $66

Granada, we’ve fallen under your spell and are dying to hear all the stories you’ll tell. Why, this entire country and its sultry soundtrack have us spell-bound. Spain’s music is as bold, imaginative and colorful as the landscape. It’s the music of gypsies and ghosts. Folk stories and fantasies. Longing, loss and love. This music especially loves strings. So we’ve brought along Juanito Pascual, one of the hottest flamenco guitarists on the circuit, and paired him with Rodrigo’s famous concerto. Imagine a matador standing alone in the ring as you hear his single guitar face the forces of a full orchestra. Thrilling. So is Capriccio Espagnol. During rehearsals for its world premiere, Korsakov’s musicians kept breaking into applause. This intoxicating piece simply adores every instrument in the orchestra. And you will, too. Your ticket is your passport to another place, another time. A great time.

Este NUestro Espacio (Our Space) - 6:00 PM
308 East 108th Street (between 1st and 2nd Avenues)
New York, New York 10029
USA
Price: $20.00, Group discounts (10 or more) $18

Flamenco Poetrance will premier a play by Silvia Siller that tells a common story through theater, poetry and flamenco dance directed by Melania Levitsky. Five artist friends get together to celebrate the anniversary of a dead friend, Bernardo. He had been an inspiration to each of them in their particular talent when the all lived in Paris, but since his death, their talent has been sporadic or dormant until their reunion after 20 years in New York City. The friends are Juan Carlos, the poet, two flamenco dancers, Isabel and Mariela, a singer, Alonso and a guitar player, Joaquin, who hosts a party for the reunion.

This reunion is the opportunity to resurrect old times when all that mattered was their bohemian world; music, dance, poetry and wine. It is a chance for each of them to reawaken their camaraderie, their passion for performance, and remember what made them friends, their support for one another in this intimate space, where they feel safe and free, with no judgments and Bernardo’s encouragement.  The fact that is Bernardo’s anniversary adds a real “duende” to the performance.  Some of the flamenco dance program includes: Alegrias, Seguiriya, Bulerias, Tangos, Tientos , and Tarantos. The poems will be recited in Spanish (with translation) and have been chosen following the plot where a subtle old love triangle emerges. All poems are part of a Poetry book in Spanish that will be released in November by Silvia Siller (in Spanish): De Mariposas y Mantis published URPI Editores.

The performance is about the great artist within who got left behind, and who now have the safe space to come forward and step in to the spotlight. The gathering then becomes the actual performance that blows away the shadows these friends have been living. The characters are the poet played by Walter Krochmal,  the first dancer played by Silvia Siller, , the other dancer Isabel played by Sabrina Hayeem-Ladani, the singer is Alfonso Cid and the guitar player, Jared Paul Newman. The show becomes this recollection of a tertulia flamenca where the spirits (including their friend) are nourished with music, cante, baile, poetry and a few secrets.

This reunion is the opportunity to resurrect old times when all that mattered was their bohemian world; music, dance, poetry and wine. It is a chance for each of them to reawaken their camaraderie, their passion for performance, and remember what made them friends, their support for one another in this intimate space, where they feel safe and free, with no judgments and Bernardo’s encouragement.  The fact that is Bernardo’s anniversary adds a real “duende” to the performance.  Some of the flamenco dance program includes: Alegrias, Seguiriya, Bulerias, Tangos, Tientos , and Tarantos. The poems will be recited in Spanish (with translation) and have been chosen following the plot where a subtle old love triangle emerges. All poems are part of a Poetry book in Spanish that will be released in November by Silvia Siller (in Spanish): De Mariposas y Mantis published URPI Editores.

The performance is about the great artist within who got left behind, and who now have the safe space to come forward and step in to the spotlight. The gathering then becomes the actual performance that blows away the shadows these friends have been living. The characters are the poet played by Walter Krochmal,  the first dancer played by Silvia Siller, , the other dancer Isabel played by Sabrina Hayeem-Ladani, the singer is Alfonso Cid and the guitar player, Jared Paul Newman. The show becomes this recollection of a tertulia flamenca where the spirits (including their friend) are nourished with music, cante, baile, poetry and a few secrets.

Chicago, Illinois 60608
USA
Price: $40 per student

How to dance to flamenco singing? This is a question a lot of dancers ask. It may look like one of the most difficult things about flamenco dancing. In this two-hour session, New York-based flamenco singer Alfonso Cid will help you understand the flamenco stanzas, how they are phrased, and the patterns of that phrasing so you will know at all times where you are at in the song.

He will also go through music concepts such as compas, dynamics, tempo, and more specific flamenco terminology as llamadas, cortes or remates and desplantes, as well as the structure of a flamenco choreography.

New York, New York 10003

Price: Advance tickets $15/Day of the show $20

Javier Ruibal considered one of Spain's national music treasures, performs at DROM in an enchanting concert of original songs reflecting the many diverse influences of his native Andalusia. An iconic singer, composer and guitarist, his music is distinguished by an innovative style that combines the rhythms and cultures of flamenco, the Maghreb, Sephardic music, jazz and the Caribbean.

Caramelo represents Brooklyn with searing Flamenco Funk that swings in Spanish and English, spiced with a hot horn section and Gypsy violins. Caramelo fuses all the flavors of their neighborhood - R&B, jazz, klezmer, and Arab modalities - to create a new world beat bursting with life and passion.

Dientes de Caramelo is Seville meets Seattle, slamming plaintive Andalusian vocals into soaring guitar lines and meditative electronic blasts of euphoria. An international crew of new world rockers, Dientes de Caramelo bursts through borders and rearranges the flamenco mind.
