“There are musicians that are masters in what they do, but are stumbling into other musical styles; others are able to mix languages easily, but only a few are authentic alchemists, those that know the nature and properties of the metals they want to melt, and know how to obtain through that alchemy pure art.”Faustino Nunez9 Artists take the stage at Artstillery for an unforgettable evening.
“Memorias Flamencas” comes to us as part of Ida y Vuelta’s Flamenco Fusion Series. Since 2016 Julia Alcantara has been co-producing with various companies in an effort to expand and educate the flamenco fan base in DFW. Each concert was an enlightening and entertaining experience for the cast and audience alike. Now she is pleased to introduce the father of Flamenco Jazz, Jorge Pardo to Dallas as the headliner for the VIII Annual Oak Cliff Flamenco Festival.
Mr Pardo’s 20 discography has won him prestigious awards, including the “Greatest living Musician on the European Continent” by the French Academy of Jazz & the "Premio Nacional de las Músicas Actuales" from the Ministry and Culture and education in Spain. This concert will prove to be an awe inspiring evening of dazzling talent and stellar musical prowess.
