There are so many inspiring things happening in my life. Tomorrow is yet another grand opportunity to take part in a new show entitled, ‘FlaMexico!’ A savory blend of flamenco music and dance blended with the sweet tones of Mariachi Music. It will be an unforgettable evening!

About a month ago I performed with a good friend and a talented dancer, Liliana de Leon Torsiello. She has her dance company Flamenco de Leon which I had the opportunity to partake in at Scottsdale Center for the Arts. I loved the below image taken by so I thought that I would share.

Here’s a brief video clip of my performance with the Chris Burton Jácome Flamenco Ensemble at the Phoenix Art Museum sponsored by the Latin American Art Alliance in November 2011.  This is part of a flamenco dance in the palo of tientos.  The evening included  flamenco dance and music with a fusion of Mariachi music from where, Chris Burton Jácome’s brainchild, ¡FlaMéxico! was born.

What people are saying:

I have taken this Sunday morning to sit and go through your wonderful book.  The quotes are so uplifting and astounding.  As I read the quote from Schweitzer – about when the light goes out and is rekindled by another person I thought of you.  You have given me that spark.  I know I am old and past physical means to spark but I will share your spark in my way as life moves on.

Thank you so much for your art, talent, and this wonderful book.

The CBJ Flamenco Ensemble performed in the beautiful Crest Theatre in Sacramento, California on Sunday, October 23, 2011.  This was my first visit to Sacramento and I fell in love with the city.  We had a fabulous concert that day and a memorable time.  I can’t wait to return back to the amazing city.

The lighting was a bit dim, so the images are a bit unclear, but you get the idea.  Photos were taken during our tech rehearsal prior to the concert.

The Chris Burton Jácome Flamenco Ensemble had the wonderful gift this year to be the season opener for the GCCCA’s concert season.  It was a magical evening performing at the Western New Mexico University’s Fine Arts Center on October 15, 2011.  Silver City is my hometown and it was wonderful to have so many family and friends attend the concert that evening. In addition, I released my coffee table book, Flamenco! at the concert.  A special evening indeed!

With all the excitement I actually forgot to take photos!  How can this be?  I find myself asking that question now. So here are the few images that were taken during the richly filled adventure to Silver City, New Mexico.

On our way to the venue. Organic Popcorn with Olive Oil.. yum.  Only at Trader Joe’s!
