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.

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.
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.
