Chris Burton Jácome is one of the most in-demand flamenco guitarists in the US. Rarely is an artist capable of touching the hearts and souls of people of all ages, cultures, and diverse backgrounds. Chris studied flamenco in Sevilla, Spain where he learned how to accompany flamenco dance and singing from the best-known names in Spain. Joining Chris for this performance will be flamenco singer Olivia Rojas and flamenco dancers Martín Gaxiola, Bernadette Gaxiola and Lena Jácome with percussionist Emerson Laffey and bassist Adrian Goldenthal. Chris’ group is one of the most innovative and inspiring new acoustic flamenco groups in the USA.
