Caminos Gitanos is an artistic and cultural representation inspired in the origin of Flamenco. Flamenco roots started in India, it merged with the Arabic and Jewish culture and it settled in the south of Spain “Andalucía”.
The group is formed by 16 local artists gathered for the first time to showcase their different cultures, schools and groups, as well as their individual talents.
The production includes different artistic expressions such as live music from the flamenco assembly with “toque” with two guitarists, a “cantaora” or singer, a violinist and a “cajon” player. Indian, Arabic and Spanish flamenco dance, Federico Garcia Lorca’s poetry recited by two actors from Spain and active members of Casa de Espana, paintings from Margaret Solomon-Bird and audiovisuals. Among the dancers, the show presents the head teachers from local groups such as Kusum Sharma from Shri Natraj School of Dance, Silvia Salamanca and her studio “Ballam”, Bianca Antonia from Flamenco Andaluz and Alex Simmons from Hierro Forjado. Our special guest Luis Manuel Ramos is a guitarist from Seville that plays in San Antonio and Austin with A’lante Flamenco. The show is directed by Marisol Monasterio and Clarissa Rosario.
