From India to Spain / El LibertadorPosted by GemArts on 6th July 2012
From India to Spain – the encounter of two rich music cultures, traditions and musicians. Through diaspora and migration the people who left India after centuries of travelling settled in the South of the Iberian Peninsula and had a vital influence not only in Flamenco music but also in Flamenco palos and dance. The project features Nick Able (sitar) who has traveled the world with Anoushka Shankar, Maybe Beltran (Flamenco dancer) who performed in the Carlos Saura film Flamenco-Flamenco, Spanish ethnomusicologist and guitarist, Paco Bethencourt and multi-talented musician and percussionist Jeremy Bradfield.

El Libertador – Simon Bolivar was the seminal and influential figure of the independence of Latin America from Spanish colonial rule. This solo monologue performance with actor Alex Elliot is presented in both Spanish and English written and directed by Nikolas Barrera, and explores universal themes of ambitions and dream and life failures.
