Description

At first glance, jazz and flamenco may not appear to have a common musical ancestry. But beneath the surface, both share a common root born out of the traditional music and dance forms of West Africa. In this outstanding double bill, multitalented jazz guitarist Doug Wamble and flamenco guitar virtuoso Niño Josele will lead their respective ensembles through this rich interconnected musical territory. The two groups will also join forces to perform new music composed by Wamble especially for this concert. Featuring bassist John Benitez, percussionist Horatio “El Negro” Hernandez, flamenco dancer Juan De Juan, and tap dancer Jason Samuels Smith.
