Mozaico Flamenco presents the Sunday Salon Series on June 12 7:30pm featuring a very intimate and special musical evening with artists specializing in pure flamenco, cantaora Jafelin Helten with guitarist Gerardo Alcala with cameo by Kasandra “La China” dancing Tarantos and Oscar Nieto to moderate the question and answer period. Why Cante Jondo? While Flamenco can trace Spanish roots, the singing or “cante” traces its roots to the Gitano. The cante was born out of Roma tradition & Flamenco is most famed for its soulful, sorrowful laments expressing human emotion. We present this showcase so that Vancouver audiences can experience little known songs such as Granaina, Livianas, Tarantos, as we rarely hear these sung. This show is for the curious and the flamenco affionados.
Mozaico Flamenco’s “Sunday Salon Series” will continue the first two Sundays of the month for the remainder of the year. The show starts at 7:30pm. Act 1 is a 45-50 min professional show, followed by a Question and Answer period over wine $5 (bring your own cup!) so the audience can meet the artists. Act 2 starts at 8:30pm and continues in a community circle like the tablaos in the caves of Sacromonte, Granada. Flamenco is a vibrant art form that lives on audience interaction in the form of handclapping and shouts, OLE! Celebrate this wonderful event with Mozaico Flamenco. We are grateful to the BC Arts Council for keeping the Arts alive in BC. Let’s bring back the Arts to the Community!
