June 13, 2021 @ 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm
BUY TICKETS NOW! They are also available by phone through Hold My Ticket at 505-886-1251. Tickets cost $20 (including all service charges). Emerge from the Pandemic with live music at a beautiful outdoor performance space at Casa Flamenca! The space can hold around 160 people at full capacity. We are currently selling 120 (75% capacity, as per current health orders). This is a great way to get used to going out again with a killer lineup of many of Albuquerque’s best artists. Come out and support local music and check out this amazing new community space. Casa Flamenca created this space in the fall while dealing with the devastating impact of the pandemic on their business. A portion of the proceeds from each show will go to help them pay for the cost of building this space (around $10K, so a substantial investment!). If you would like to make additional donations to support them, you’ll have an opportunity to do that when you buy your tickets or you can DONATE NOW. SEATING: We have enough seating to accommodate everyone! PARKING: There is plenty of street parking, but you are also welcome to park at Monica’s El Portal across the street. Big thanks to Monica for letting us use their lot after hours! CONCESSIONS: We have drinks (water, soda, sparkling water), chips & cookies and sometimes light snacks and homemade goodies. Masks are not required if vaccinated. They are encouraged for lining up, checking in and entry. Most people are not wearing masks for the majority of the evening outside. There’s an extraordinary new cross-cultural musical ensemble in town that is causing quite a buzz. It is called “The Juani de la Isla Quartet,” founded by the highly acclaimed flamenco guitarist Juani de la Isla. This globe-spanning array of top-notch musicians features the exceptional flamenco guitarist Spanish-born Juani de la Isla, Cuban-born bassist Yosmel Montejo, cellist extraordinaire Joan Zucker and Venezuelan Percussionist Javier Saume Mazzei. The quartet will be joined by flamenco dancer Valeria Montes, born in Mexico. Highly praised in Spain as a flamenco accompanist and soloist, Juani de la Isla has recorded over 200 albums with artists world-wide. “The Juani de la Isla Quartet” will be presenting a selection of music from his album Libertad en Mis Manos (Freedom in My Hands) in an evening that promises to be an amazing cross cultural experience.
