Chicago Flamenco Festival 2016 presents The Andalusian Trail Series (Part 1 and Part 2)
Las Guitarras de EspaƱa founder/guitarist, Carlo Basile along with vocalist/oud player, Ronnie Malley and Indian veena artist, Saraswathi Ranganathan are happy to announce a partnership in residency with the Instituto Cervantes of Chicago. The goal is to present works which showcase arts and artists from cultures which are linked to Spanish flamenco music such as those of the Indian, Arabic and African traditions. As part of this collaborative residency, the performances described here will be included as part of the Chicago Flamenco Festival 2016 presented by the Instituto Cervantes, the Old Town School of Folk Music and the Flamenco Arts Center.


From Rajasthan to the Middle East to North Africa and across the Mediterranean into Andalusia, musical ideas and instruments were exchanged and have contributed to the foundation of flamenco music. Over the course of two evenings, Las Guitarras de Espana will present an ensemble of international guest artists celebrating music from the shared cultural history of medieval Andalusia to the present. The performances will feature original and traditional repertoire with Spanish guitar, Arabo-Andalusian poetry and music by Ronnie Malley on oud and harmonium, as well as Rajasthani folk dance by Kinnari Vora and flamenco and Mid-Eastern dance by Marisela Tapia. This special program will include music from the ensemble Surabhi featuring Sara Ranganathan (veena), Carlo Basile (guitar), Dhananjay Kunte (tabla), Diego Alonso (guitar), Greg Nergaard, (bass), and Bob Garrett (percussion).

The Friday evening performance will feature traditional and original music and dance with Indian roots in flamenco music.

The Saturday evening performance will feature traditional and original music and dance with Arabic roots in flamenco music.

NOTE: Each evening requires a separate ticket purchase.
