Description


This event has been postponed.

Singer-songwriter Rocío Márquez is a rising star with one of the most impressive voices on today’s flamenco scene. Her style combines retro cool, modern elegance, and a passionate vocal delivery. Merging tradition with the avant-garde, Songs of Light is an open journey through various flamenco genres, at once deep, challenging, and accessible. Márquezwill be accompanied by her longtime collaborator Miguel Ángel Cortés, the highly acclaimed guitarist. 
 
Before the evening concert, Márquez will participate in a free, daylong symposium, “Flamenco in the U.S.” Scholars, artists, and producers will explore how blackface minstrelsy, the Harlem Renaissance, the anti-war movement, and jazz have left an imprint on flamenco today.
