Cuerdas con Lunares Cuerdas con Lunares translated is guitar strings with polka dots. Polka dots were traditionally worn by the gypsies of southern Spain when performing the soulful union of song, guitar and dance which was eventually called flamenco. Lines and dots can also be imagined as written musical scores that can be rearranged multiple times to create different expressions of feeling and mood. Cuerdas con Lunares comes from three passionate artists who revel in the tradition of flamenco while adding something of themselves and their experiences. The group is based out of Seattle although all three individuals have crossed paths while working on their art in Sevilla, Spain.
Melinda Hedgecorth comes direct from Sevilla, Spain, her home for the last 10 years where she dances in local flamenco tablaos and peñas as well as making special appearances in El Museo de Baile Flamenco Cristina Hoyos and in the festival Flamenco en la Frontera in Morón de la Frontera.
Jed Miley recently returned to Seattle from New York where he was working with Flamenco Vivo Carlota Santana and Flamenco Revolución teaching, composing, and performing at venues such as Jacobs Pillow. He has his own Flamenco Rock band Dientes de Caramelo and a new recording studio in Seattle, Pinche Studios.
Daniel Azcarate returns to Seattle fresh from Sevilla, Spain where he has spent the last year intensely studying at Fundación Cristina Heeren, performing at local tablaos, and recording his first CD Mi Camino Flamenco.
