LIST OF PAST FLAMENCO
Directed by Ethan Margolis
Produced by Deborah Lawlor
Starring Juan Bacan, Kina Mendez, Oscar Valero, Melissa Cruz, Ethan Margolis
Join us for a wonderful night of Flamenco music! It will be a very rare opportunity to see one of the purist gypsy singing traditions from Spain as the Fountain Theatre welcomes Juan Bacán for the first time. Juan is steeped in the song of his family, the Pinini Clan of Lebrija and Utrera. He is the brother of world-famous flamenco singer, Ines Bacan and the late guitar legend, Pedro Bacan. Juan’s aunts were Fernanda and Bernarda de Utrera, his cousin is El Lebrijano, and his nephew is Dorantes. This evening at the Fountain, we will witness some of the oldest forms of gypsy flamenco singing as they existed at the beginning of the 20th century.
For all of you flamenco dance fans, there will also be two amazing artists collaborating in the performance, Oscar Valero and Melissa Cruz.
If you are a Flamenco or World Music fan, please don’t miss this show!
