Old and Nu

Fiery flamenco has made a comeback in recent years all over the country, but it’s always been hot here in Miami. For years, South Floridians have been able to see and hear classic versions along with newer, hybrid pieces. That’s what “Of Essence and Time” from the local Nu Flamenco troupe is all about. The group, using the music of Spanish guitarist Jose Luis Rodriguez and choreography by Niurca Marquez, will be joined by a singer from Venezuela, a violinist from Uruguay, a bass player from Cuba, and a setar master from Iran. That’s one serious meeting of musical styles. Together, they will combine traditional flamenco with Sephardic songs and popular Andalusian sounds.
