Las Minas Puerto Flamenco
In the fourth concert of a world tour through five continents, “Las Minas Puerto Flamenco” debuts at the Harris Theater Chicago for a one-night-only performance on Monday, September 25. A musical performance celebrating the history of Flamenco integrates song and dance with eleven different artists over the course of 100 minutes. “Las Minas Puerto Flamenco” blends together guitars, dancing, flamenco flute, flamenco saxophone and percussion, taking audiences through the history of flamenco and world music genres.
A performance full of sensitivity and imagery, “Las Minas Puerto Flamenco” explores the history of Flamenco through trade ports—hubs for export but also celebration, day and night. From the guajira set off for the Caribbean from the Canary Islands to the Cuban habaneras that arrived to Spanish ports, the talented musicians and dancers of “Las Minas Puerto Flamenco” celebrate the history of the music style and its many influences.
