Award-winning Spanish composer, guitarist and producer Javier Limón will follow the origins of Flamenco music with singers from Lebanon, Spain, Israel, and India. The concert will take place on Saturday, February 11, 2017, at Merkin Concert Hall at Kaufman Music Center in New York City. A Question and Answer session with Javier Limón will follow the performance.
According to some scholars, the roots of Flamenco go back to Gypsy music, with its origins in Northern India; Spanish folk music from other regions; Sephardic music; and Arabic music. Limón’s Flamenco Orígenes will feature four remarkable singers representing some of these musical traditions that represent the origins of Flamenco: Christiane Karam from Beirut (Lebanon), Genara Cortés from Malaga (Spain), Tali Rubinstein from Israel, and Shilpa Ananth from Kerala (India).
