Flamenco music has always been popular at Berklee, and with the opening of the new Berklee campus in Valencia, Spain, students are getting curious to see what it’s all about. The Berklee Flamenco Soul tour gives students an idea of how Spanish and Latin American music sounds, feels and even looks like. The tour, part of the Young Flamenco Movement, is under the artistic direction of Javier Limon, a seven-time Latin Grammy Award winner and artistic director of the Mediterranean Music Institute of Berklee in Valencia. Each show will focus on the different sounds of Flamenco music, including the oldest and most original styles and the experimental modes of today, depicting the evolution of Spanish and Latin American music.
The performances are happening all over the East Coast and will be making a stop in Boston on June 25 at the Arsenal Center for the Arts. You can purchase tickets by calling the box office at 617-923-8487.
Come to the Arsenal Center for the Arts at 8 p.m. to experience talented musicians, including Berklee students, alumni and flamenco artists, give the audience a sample of the beauty, provocative and pureness of Spanish and Latin American music.
