Description

Flamenco is cultivated in musical legacies across generations. Join us for a conversation with two scions of a legendary musical lineage who are also Grammy-nominated musical innovators: the renowned Pepe Habichuela, patriarch of the Habichuela family of guitarists from Granada, Spain, and his son Josemi Carmona, of Ketama and Barbería del Sur. They will be joined by Javier Colina, who fuses musical languages by introducing the double bass to flamenco, and Grammy-award winning pianist and composer Arturo O’Farrill, the son of latin-jazz pioneer Chico O’Farril. The artists will speak with K. Meira Goldberg, scholar-in-residence at the Foundation for Iberian Music.
