El Sol de Verano: Savannah Fuentes, Flamenco
Thu, Oct 29 2015, 8:00 pm$8 – $35
Seattle-based Flamenco dancer Savannah Fuentes brings her latest show, El Sol de Verano (Summer Sun) to Community Center of Mendocino July 12.
Savannah will be joined by one of Southern Spain’s most promising singing prodigies, Jose Manuel Perez, “El Pechuguita.” Jose acquired a deep understanding of el cante Flamenco (Flamenco singing) observing master artists in the Flamenco clubs of his hometown of Seville. Only 22 years of age, Jose has already performed with a long list of today’s most prominent Flamenco artists including Paloma Fantova, Maria Juncal, and Moi de Moron. The 7:30 performance will be his first public appearance in Florence.
Savannah and Jose will be joined by guitarist Bobby de Sofia. Originally from Sofia, Bulgaria, Bobby discovered Flamenco in Los Angeles and continued his studies in Andalusia with artists such as Pedro Viscomi and Paco Arroyo. He currently performs regularly at the various Flamenco clubs in the Los Angeles area.
Born in Seattle to parents of Puerto Rican and Irish ancestry, Savannah began her studies in Seattle and continued in Spain with dancers such as Belen Maya and Cristobal Reyes. She currently tours throughout the western United States and has independently produced over 250 presentations and workshops featuring internationally recognized Flamenco singers.
Spanish Flamenco encompasses the full spectrum of human emotion in its three key elements: song, guitar, and its signature percussive dance. Don’t miss this chance to experience the enchantment of Flamenco in an intimate setting.
