Johnson County Community College's Carlsen Center to Present IBERICA SIENTO Y VIVO (I FEEL AND LIVE)
The 2019 - 2020 season of the Carlsen Center Presents Series continues with Winterlude - Ensemble Ibérica Siento y Vivo (I Feel and Live), on Sunday, December 8, 7 p.m. in Polsky Theatre.
A celebration of flamenco music performed by Kansas City musicians, this ensemble pushes the envelope of this centuries-old art form that embraces the exchange of new ideas and fosters boldness and originality. Similar to contemporary jazz, flamenco is born of and influenced by many cultures-Gypsy, Jewish, Moorish and indigenous Andalusían-and infused with the politics and class struggles of these groups. Siento y Vivo mirrors this history by borrowing from American jazz, Cuban music and contemporary dance. This ensemble pushes the envelope of this familiar standard and moves forward with the influence of these outside sources, creating a beautiful union of tradition and originality. Siento y Vivo is composed of dancer/choreographer Melinda Hedgecorth, percussionist John Currey, vocalist Antonio Rojas and guitarists Beau Bledsoe and Michael McClintock. More information about the artists can be found here.
