The Guadalupe Cultural Arts Center Presents Flamenco Master Miguel Vargas’ Powerful New Show
The Guadalupe Cultural Arts Center presents the April First Friday edition of Celebrando Tradiciones: An Authentic Dance and Music Experience featuring renowned flamenco master Miguel Vargas and the powerful cantaor ( singer ) Ale Cano, both direct from Seville, Spain. The duo will collaborate with resident mariachi ensemble Mariachi Azteca de America to create and perform a special Flamenco Mariachi fusion piece. While the Guadalupe Dance Company has collaborated with Mr. Vargas for many years now in which Vargas has built up an extensive repertoire for the dance company, this will be the first collaboration with Mariachi Azteca de America. Opening the evening will be the Guadalupe Dance Company performing traditional dances of Mexico to highlight the similarities and influences of Spain. The first half of the program will showcase traditional Mexican dances from the states of Veracruz, Nuevo Leon, and Jalisco. The second half of the show will feature Miguel Vargas and Ale Cano performing their critically acclaimed flamenco repertoire.

Each year over 40,000 arts patrons, community members, and cultural tourists experience the work of the region’s most dynamic Latino artists.
