Seattle-based Flamenco dancer Savannah Fuentes is bringing her latest show, “Luz, an Evening of Flamenco,” to Whidbey.
The show is 7:30 p.m. Friday, March 1 at Bayview Community Hall.
Fuentes will be joined by Spanish-Romani guitarist Pedro Cortes and singer-percussionist-dancer Jose Moreno.
Fuentes, born in Seattle to parents of Puerto Rican and Irish ancestry, is one of the only touring artists in the Pacific Northwest region with strong links to Flamenco culture.
Cortes comes from a family of Spanish Gypsy guitarists and began his studies with his father and the esteemed Flamenco guitarist Sabicas. Having toured professionally since the age of 17, he is gaining international recognition as a soloist and composer.
Moreno was born into a family of famous flamenco artists, Estrella Morena, a dancer, and Pepe de Málaga, a singer. Moreno began his flamenco career at an early age.
The all-ages performance is the fourth stop of the 27-date tour of Washington state, California, Oregon and Nevada.
