Sol Flamenco, the passion and fire of Spain hits the stage in Santa Rosa. An evening of lightning-fast footwork, haunting guitar rhythms, and soulful singing set in the intimate Arlene Francis Center in Santa Rosa.
The show features a cast of artists that have lived and trained in Spain, the birthplace of flamenco: dancers Damien Alvarez and Joelle Gonçalves, flamenco guitarist Mark Taylor with special guest singer, Azriel "El Moreno." The group has been working together for many years and it shows in the dancers' precision footwork, emotionally haunting vocals, the guitarists bold accompaniment.
With only 100 seats per show, the Arlene Francis Center is the perfect place to see flamenco up close," said artistic director Joelle Gonçalves.
