Bienvenidos Valeria will showcase flamenco artists from Dallas, Mexico, and Spain with an internationally renowned collection of singers, guitarists, dancers and percussionists in an invigorating evening.
A Kresge Artist Fellow, Valeria Montes, will headline the show. She has been described as “mesmerizing” by the Detroit Free Press and “beauty in motion” by the Metro Times. She is known as La Chispa, the Spark, for her passionate and vibrant interpretation of Cante Flamenco, flamenco song, and for her complex rhythmic zapateado.
Joining Montes are Juani de la Isla, a highly respected flamenco guitarist, and Adrian Cabeza Domínguez, singer. Both hail from Cadiz, Spain, the most famous city in the ‘crib’ of flamenco dance and singing. Also featured are Venezuelan musician Pedro Lattouf, demonstrating the influence of flamenco on Venezuelan music, and Carlos Garcia from Sevilla, Spain.
Ida y Vuelta Flamenco has hosted amazing artists from around the world to the Dallas – Fort Worth area for more than 20 years, and Bienvenidos Valeria will be no exception. Flamenco originated in Spain in the 1500s and has continued to evolve over the last 500 years to become one of the most complex musical and dance genres in history.
“Flamenco is a demanding and intense dance style and has captivated audiences from every continent. This show focuses on artists from South and Meso American countries enthralled by its raw power and sensual nature,” says Julia Alcántara, director of Ida y Vuelta Flamenco.
The public is invited to join in the After Party at Maracas Mexican Cuisine, walking distance from the Door. Guests can enjoy the late-night menu and open dance floor featuring: Venezuelan musician Pedro Lattouf and Carlos Garcia from Sevilla, Spain, performing dance music from Latin America and Spain.
