The New World Flamenco Festival has ordered up a big new show that will be rehearsed in Spain and presented in its world premiere. _Somos Flamencos _celebrates flamenco’s most treasured traditions of improvisation and spontaneity among its dancers, singers and guitarists. Yaelisa, the Festival’s artistic director, is guest-directing this extraordinary ensemble of Spain’s top dancers, musicians and singers.
In response to some of its other original shows – Jerez, Puro; _Sin Fronteras _starring Savion Glover; and _Y Una Batita de Cola _- the Festival has been asked to represent this show on a national tour during the 2009-2010 season. The run has been extended to five nights of vibrant dance, majestic cante, and soulful guitar.
