This show titled “Nueva York Flamenco City” is comprised of singer and flautist Alfonso Cid from Spain, German flamenco guitarist Andreas Arnold, Jamaican-American dancer Aliesha Bryan and Mexican percussionist Guillermo Barrón, evidence that artists of many different cultures have found a way to express themselves through Flamenco.
Alfonso is a well-known artist in the USA and abroad. Fresh from a tour of Spain with the New York Bojaira Jazz Flamenco Project, he has also toured Israel with the Jerusalem Andalusian Orchestra, and has traveled all over the world with famous bachata artist Romeo Santos.
