FLAMENCO DEL ORO: noche flamenca!

The Emerald Tablet is very pleased to welcome back Flamenco Del Oro, a flamenco music and dance troupe with attitude and spirit delivering syncopated and sensual rhythms made with passionate guitar, intoxicating vocals, and fiery beautiful dancing.

Join us Friday November 15th, 8-10 pm for another unforgettable performance with Flamenco del Oro — two sets and an intermission with very special guests: Roberto Zamora, dancer Bianca Rodriguez, and guitarist Gopal Slavonic.

Roberto ZamoraRoberto Zamora has been a performer of flamenco song and dance for 35 years. He is a well-known and welcome guest at regional festivals in Andalusia, southern Spain, where he has immersed himself for many years in Andalusian culture and its gypsy flamenco heartbeat. Roberto’s style and knowledge has been inspired through close association with flamenco legends “La Fernanda” and “La Bernarda,” Pepe Rios, “Anzonini del Puerto,” “el Funi,” Agustín Rios, and Juan del Gastor and the gypsies of Morón de la Frontera. He has performed in Spain with Juan del Gastor, in Canada and throughout the U.S. with various companies, among them La Tania Flamenco Music and Dance, La Monica Pasión Flamenca, Rosa Montoya Bailes Flamencos, and is an active member of Yaelisa’s Caminos Flamencos.

Bianca RodriguezBianca Rodriguez began dancing at the age of 3 and received a Bachelor’s of Arts in dance with a flamenco emphasis at the University of New Mexico. While there, Bianca work-studied at the National Institute of Flamenco and danced in the pre-professional and professional companies, participating in the annual Festival Flamenco and studying with some of Spain’s greatest Flamenco artists, such as Mercedes Amaya, Karime Amaya, Adela Campallo and Manuel Linan.

In his 18 years of dedication to flamenco guitar, Gopal has returned to Spain to further his studies several times, most frequently to Jerez de la Frontera. He has performed with flamenco artists including Kina Mendez, Kerensa Demars,Cerro Negro, La Fibi, Mark Taylor, La Carola, Roberto Zamora, Pilar Moreno, Zahara, and Jose Galvez.
