Flamenco Guitarist and Dancer† Perform Sept. 27
SALISBURY, MD -- The drama and passion of Flamenco dancing and Flamenco guitar are coming to Salisbury State University. Flamenco guitarist Miguel Perez and Flamenco dancer Micaela Moreno perform on Wednesday, September 27, at 7 p.m. in the Great Hall of Holloway Hall.
Flamenco originated around 200 years ago in a small area of southern Spain called Andalucia, where its roots remain strong. Today, Flamenco is considered the national music of Spain and has come to represent the quintessential manifestation of Spanish folk music.
"For as long as I can remember, I have been surrounded by music," said Moreno. "As a child, my every morning awoke to the sound of Colombian folklore, my days filled with salsa, merengue, and popular Ď70s hits and ended by falling asleep to the harmonic melodies of such artists as Bach and Mozart. So, it was only natural that I learned to dance even before I learned to walk. I began my career as a flamenco dancer at the age of eight."
Moreno studied with established flamenco artists, such as Ena Camargo, La Conja, La Tia and Susana Di Palma. Perez studied classical guitar at Cal Sate Fullerton and Georgetown University. Moreno and Perez perform regularly in the Washington, D.C. area.
"Flamenco" is sponsored by the Salisbury State University’s Cultural Affairs Council and the Office of Multiethnic Student Services. Admission is free and open to the public. For more information, please call the SSU Public Relations Office at 410-543-6030.
