Las Guitarras de España and Intercultural Music Production present «The Andalusian Trail: The Roots of Flamenco”

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. Members of the ensemble Surabhi (founded by Saraswathi Ranganathan) will present an evening of music featuring the shared cultural history of medieval Andalusia to the present. The performance will include 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. The evening will also feature Saraswathi Ranganathan (veena), Carlo Basile (guitar), Dhananjay Kunte (tabla), Diego Alonso (guitar), Greg Nergaard (bass), and Bob Garrett (percussion).

Las Guitarras de España founder/guitarist, Carlo Basile along with vocalist/oud player, Ronnie Malley and Indian veena artist, Saraswathi Ranganathan are happy to continue 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 2017 presented by the Instituto Cervantes, City Winery (Chicago), the Old Town School of Folk Music and the Flamenco Arts Center.
