About this Event

The San Francisco-based acoustic ensemble performs a repertoire of original compositions with an emotionally charged sound that is difficult to classify yet instantly recognizable. The group’s international roots shine brightly in their music with members from Spain, Quebec, France, Brazil and California and is deeply influenced by a wide range of musical traditions. Barrio Manouche has been recognized for its surprise concerts, innovative style, complex technique, and its passion for musical improvisations. With latest collaborations including French Flamenco dancer Fanny Ara, African sacred dance Brazilian dancer Emaye Ama Mizani, as well as Colombian singer Iván Rondón, Barrio Manouche plays what is perhaps the truest definition of World Music. Barrio Manouche is taking their audience on a magical journey, with a unique fusion of cultures and musical backgrounds, an auditory and visual feast like no other. “Barrio Manouche makes magical acoustic music mashed together from all corners of the globe — a new form of Americana, if you will, where flamenco guitar drifts above Brazilian beats, clashing with Gypsy-jazz melodies. It could very well qualify as Americana in another decade or two. Or maybe its rich, gorgeous blend of acoustic Latin-French jazz will always remain distinctly Barrio Manouche.” — Aaron Carnes

BARRIO MANOUCHE is:

Javi Jiménez - guitar and vocals, Alex Zelnick - guitar, Luis Jiménez - cajón and percussions, Gary Johnson - bass, Cyril Guiraud - saxophones and caxixi , Magali Sanscartier - violin, vocals and percussions, Fanny Ara - dance, palmas, castanets and vocals, Emaye Ama Mizani - dance and percussions

With the flash of a colorful skirt, Flamenco por la Vida's artistic director Angelina Ramirez transports her audience to a place far from the Sonoran desert -- the south of Spain, to be exact. The combination of sweet Spanish lyrics and dramatic dance poses may not be what you'd expect to catch at the Crescent, but the intimate setting makes for a performance that's enrapturing, exotic, and unexpected pre-concert entertainment.

The mission of Flamenco Por La Vida is to build an understanding of and appreciation for Flamenco in Arizona by presenting festivals and professional flamenco performances, engaging diverse communities and offering classes to students of all ages, races and economic backgrounds.
