Chicago (Illinois), USA – Following the US release of
Son de la Frontera, the five members of this
brilliant new flamenco ensemble will make their Chicago debut at HotHouse on
Friday, February 3 as part of Flamenco 2006: Chicago’s annual Flamenco Festival.
The concert will be held Friday, February 3, at 8:00pm. Tickets are $15 in
advance, $20 at the door, (21 & Over).One of the most dynamic and highly acclaimed ensembles in Spain today,
Son de la Frontera brings a fresh new edge to
the flamenco tradition, carving a wholly unique path in their personal tribute
to Spain’s renowned guitar master and sonic innovator, Diego del Gastor. In
performing the music of maestro Gastor, the great guitarist and musical
visionary from Morón de la Frontera (in the province of Sevilla),
Son de la Frontera is committed to exploring
the cross-pollination of Spanish-based traditions with sounds from four other
continents, revealing flamenco’s ancient Moorish and Middle Eastern heritage
while also blending in rhythmic and melodic elements from Cuba, Argentina,
Columbia and Venezuela.
