Saturday, Feb 8 - Angelita Concierto Flamenco

Sunday, Feb 9 - Flamenco Puro

Valentine's Day Weekend, Friday, Feb 14 - Noche en Triana features Antonio Triana and special guests. The cuadro flamenco forms on stage against a backdrop of drumming handclaps, a voice moans the cante jondo, that pure essence of Andalusian song. Dancers strike the tablao with thundering footwork. Tension mounts as the performers unleash their fiery improvisations to the compelling rhythms of the guitar. This is the native art of Triana, where flamenco has a long tradition, where rhythm is life.
