Flamenco was cultivated in Spain over the centuries through the fusion of various cultures—namely Roma, Moorish, Jewish and Andalusian. It's a dynamic living folk art where dance, voice and guitar combine, and many styles and variations on the form are explored. Flamenco’s intensity appeals to multiple senses with complex rhythms, heartrending emotions and a riot of ruffled colors.
The festivities will take place at UNM and the National Hispanic Cultural Center from Sunday, June 10, to Saturday, June 16. Visit ffi25.org for schedules and to buy tickets.
