St. Louis Cultural Flamenco SocietyJoin us on Sunday, February 12th from 12:30-3 p.m., as we explore the music and culture of Spain at the East Academic Building on the campus of Webster University.  

Flamenco has been described both as a way of life and a fusion of cultures, as expressed through music, dance, and song.  Its roots are in the multiple cultures of South Spain.  

At Explore Music! SPAIN we will learn about the history of Spanish and Flamenco dance, listen to live Flamenco guitar and song, learn a Flamenco dance move or two, taste delicious Spanish cuisine (available for purchase) and take part in cultural activities and crafts.

The St. Louis Cultural Flamenco Society will be our guide on our journey to Spain, with guest artists Marcos Jimenez, Internationally known Flamenco artist, native of Seville, Spain; Liliana De La Caridad Fagoaga, native of Cuba, trained in all three forms of Spanish dance; Esther Pardo from Murcia, Spain, danced as a soloist and principal roles in Spain, Cuba, France and Germany; Edwin Suarez from Colombia, studied and share the stage with great artists from Spain; singer Macarena Jurado De Heras, native of Seville, Spain, started singing Flamenco and the Copla at a very early age, performs around Spain, Portugal, France and the USA; and guitarist Ricardo Diaz originally from San Francisco, studied in Madrid Spain and has performed with world-renown Flamenco artists throughout the country.  Learn more about the St. Louis Cultural Flamenco Society at:  www.stlouisflamenco.org
