Flamenco Nights @ Galeria West concert event with acclaimed dancer Elizabet Torras from Spain & Guest Artists

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 13, 2017 @ 7:30PM

The popular FLAMENCO NIGHTS @ GALERIA WEST concert series returns on Friday, October 13, 2017 at 7:30pm to the Galeria West Art & Music Gallery, located at 111 Quimby Street in downtown Westfield, NJ. This special and authentic concert event features an exciting evening of Flamenco Puro celebrating the best of this internationally popular music & dance genre. Come join accomplished flamenco guitarist Pedro Cortes and his guest artists; acclaimed dancer Elizabet Torras, percussionist & vocalist Jose Moreno and saxophonist Dan Perez as they take the audience on an exciting cultural journey.

Pedro Cortes comes from a family of Spanish gypsy guitarists and began his studies with his father and the esteemed Flamenco guitarist Sabicas. Having toured professionally since the age of 17, he has gained international recognition as a soloist and composer. He premiered his work "En la oscuridad de las minas" at the Teatro Albeniz in Madrid, and in 1992 he had works premiered by the Carlota Santana Spanish Dance Company at the Joyce Theater in New York. He has written two books on flamenco, El Dron del Faraon and Cruzando el Charco, published by the American Institute of Guitar. He toured with the great Jose Greco and Maria Benitez, and has performed with such artists as Farrucita, La Tati and others. As covered in detail in a recent New Yorker magazine article, Mr. Cortes is a third generation in demand Flamenco guitarist and uses the experience passed down to him by his family to maintain the purity of Flamenco while creating new compositions.

Teatro Sí brings to flamenco aficionados 10 concert performances of passionate flamenco music and dance on the 2nd Friday of the month during each annual season. Along with special diverse guest artists, the experience reveals the pure emotional essence of this popular Iberian music and dance form. Together they celebrate the expressive flamenco as it takes on a new character and exposes the audience to the warmth of the human spirit as expressed through music and dance. The body movements and the facial expressions of the dancers join with the artistry of the musicians and singers to create a spectacle that is a treat for both the eye and the soul. Come experience an evening of Spanish gypsy culture with the cast of this captivating music and dance celebration!
