Flamenco Masters Come To Aventura
June 13, 2022
Siudy Flamenco presents A Dos a Flamenco suite created by Siudy Garrido with original music by composer/guitarist Jose Luis de La Paz. Siudy, along with maestro Jose Luis de la Paz interpret flamenco numbers “A Dos,” which means in a duet, describing mesmerizing dance solos accompanied by the simple yet intense musical presence of De la Paz guitar.
The company ballet appears interspersed within-and-in between movements that take the audience on a journey into the intimate emotions in the music over the classic Flamenco rhythms known as Seguidilla, Alegrías and Solea. It explores and presents a journey through the diversity of colors, sensations, and emotions of a pure-rooted Flamenco, while at the same time remaining open to the present, a proper reading of the different styles of Flamenco dancing. Siudy Garrido Flamenco Company is known for collaborations with the Los Angeles Philharmonics, Flamenco superstars Farruquito and Antonio Canales.
