Canteca de Macao, one of the leading Spanish mestizo bands will perform at New York Flamenco Festival 2010 on Wednesday, February 17 at 8:00 PM. The Madrid-based Canteca de Macao has caused a stir in international music circles in recent years with its wild blend of flamenco, Gypsy rumba, rock, punk, reggae, salsa and jazz.
One of Spain’s most popular live acts, the group makes each performance into an exciting and joyful party. For this program, the nine-member group, which includes a juggler, features selections from its new CD Agua pa’ la tierra (Warner Music), which fervidly deals with life, the planet, water and wine.
