The world of flamenco’s “Golden Age,” left behind all too soon, comes to life again in 2013 with a cast of sublime, world-class artists who will revive an era through a fresh combination of youth, creativity and modern-day groove. Directed by Jesús Muñoz, 1929 features vintage rhythms that have been performed by only a few flamenco dancers in the world.
1929 is used as a platform year for exploration throughout the Golden Age of Flamenco. The concert will feature some of Flamenco’s emerging artists from Spain and Internationally. Nationally and Internationally, Muñoz is recognized for creating unique and original rhythms and music that represent his American roots, with traditional Spanish Influence. Jesus Muñoz Flamenco is a world-class Flamenco ensemble dedicated to creating a unique improvisational structure, adaptive to many traditional and contemporary methods. 1929 takes the risk of developing traditional melodic and harmonic structures through funky drop tunings and doubled up, half time rhythms that have been performed by very few artists, if ever, in full concert.
Experience flamenco dance and music at its finest, with an energy so big it makes even the largest crowd feel intimate.
