June 4, 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.
Nohe & Sus Santos (Nohe & Her Saints) have not sat on their hands during the pandemic. While they were not able to return to stages across the country, they released their debut CD the at once subtle and intense – and completely sublime – Tempestad, (Santo Records/ Avokado Artists/distributed by Casete) and a number of singles, including their original take of the Christmas classic “Feliz Navidad,” “La Nave Del Ovido” and an acoustic version of the title track of their CD “Tempestad” (with special guest Jordan Wax of Lone Pinon). Their music will be heard in the feature length film ¿Dónde Está La Cigueña? (Where Is The Stork?, September 2021). And the band’s multi-talented vocalist and namesake Nohelia Sosa has a role in the hilarious feature film Half Brothers.
Nohe & Sus Santos is a five piece band that mixes Spanish and English vocals with the musical traditions, rhythms and sounds of the Americas, incorporating Alt-Rock en Espanol, Cumbia, Pop grooves and beyond! The group has shared stages with the diverse likes of Ozomatli, Red Pears, Making Movies, and Samantha Fish, delivering a Latinx vibe full of soul, passion and a good dose of attitude that leaves dancing crowds wanting more. It has the Albuquerque Journal enthusing that the band is “out of the ordinary.”
Featuring musicians from Honduras and the United States, Nohe & Sus Santos finds its stride in creating songs that do much more than simply cross language and cultural borders. The band fosters a multicultural experience empowered by a new Latinx generation, one of positive messages of self-identification and respect for their heritage.
Fronted by celebrated Honduran vocalist Nohelia Sosa, the band is rounded out by the extraordinary string wizardry of Randy Sanchez on electric and acoustic guitars and tres, Gilbert Uribe, the band’s pulse, on bass and Dennis Jasso holding it all down with an impeccable groove on the drum kit. Mike Trujillo is also on hand to add some magic on congas and additional percussion.
And now Nohe & Sus Santos is ready to get back out on the road to bring their tempestad to national and international audiences. You won’t be seeking shelter from this storm.
