Get swept away with an exciting night of flamenco music and dance as The Flamenco Society of San Jose presents A Taste of Spain. A cast of some of the Bay Area's best flamenco artists will showcase this vibrant genre, which combines singing, guitar playing, dance and handclaps. Originating in Andalusia in southern Spain, this energetic and passionate style evolved out of the melting pot of the region's many cultures and is mostly credited to its Romani population. An improvisational form, flamenco brings together a singer, guitarist and dancer, who respond to and shape each other's performances. The result is an electrifying display of artistic expression.
