Mariachi Meets Flamenco

Sunday, August 24, 2014 • 3pm


Chris Burton Jacome

¡FlaMÉXico! is a musical reflection of two cultures forming a new vision. Arizona-born composer Chris Burton Jácome charged his project ¡FlaMÉXico! with finding, creating and celebrating the musical confluences of Spain’s Flamenco and México’s Mariachi.

Chris grew up listening to mariachi music at his family’s fiestas, but felt a calling to a musical genre more distant from his Mexican-American roots…Flamenco stole Chris’ heart and he moved to Sevilla, Spain to study the art form directly from the source.

¡FlaMÉXico!’s mission is to find a genuine fusion of two distinct and profound musical styles while adequately representing the cultural integrity of each. Beauty, celebration and joy have all been found in the beginning stages of this quest. New audiences will be enthralled and delighted by the initial results.


Foyer doors open at 2pm and all seating is first come, first served.
