“Memorias Flamencas” is part of Flamenco Fever’s ambitious Fusion Series. Since 2016. Julia Alcántara, company founder, has been co-producing with various companies to expand and educate the flamenco fan base in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. She is pleased to introduce the internationally awarded Spanish jazz artist, Jorge Pardo, to Dallas. His sophisticated blend of jazz and flamenco tests the boundaries of both forms yet retains the true essence of each genre. The passionate blend is engaging and intense, using all the breaks necessary for authentic flamenco. Yet, strangely, no one has ever done an entire dance concert to his music. Ms. Alcántara dreamed of making this happen for decades as an homage to the genius whose compositions, no matter how innovative, never lost respect for the original genre.
