Spanish bailaora Rebeca Tomás is back by popular demand to this encounter of artists of the Mediterrean. The phrase a palo seco refers to the "a cappella" style of flamenco music, typically consisting of singing or percussion alone. That stripped-down aesthetic characterizes some of the company's biggest departures from tradition, featured in this production of Tradiciones Nuevas. While implementing typical Flamenco props, such as the bata de cola (long-train dress) and abanico (Spanish fan), the repertoire in this production will feature the company's penchant for unconventional fare with an innovative and edgy New York feel.

This is only the bands third ever show in London.
Garcia became a breakout star with the release of his debut solo album ‘Laura.’ NPR named Diego Garcia’s debut “one of the top 25 albums of the year (so far).” He was ‘Artist of the Month’ at tastemaker radio station WXPN-FM in Philadelphia and ‘CD of the Month’ at WFUV in New York City. He has performed live shows for key radio shows across the country, including KCRW’s Morning Becomes Eclectic and WXPN’s World Café.
Garcia’s poignant first single “You Were Never There,” which was co-written by Dhani Harrison (George Harrison’s son) is a perfect example. With lush string arrangements, delicate Spanish guitars, and distinctly Latin flavor, the song is worlds apart from Garcia’s former band Elefant. “You Were Never There” was a Starbucks ‘Pick of the Week’ (750,000 download cards), marking one of the only times that Starbucks has ever selected a Latino artist for this special opportunity.

Alegria combines his experience playing jazz as it developed in the U.S. with a passionate interest and careful study of the black music of coastal Perú. By incorporating and exploring the common African roots found in both styles, he has developed a uniquely Afro-Peruvian jazz music concept. The rich legacy of the black music of coastal Perú can be heard in a contemporary jazz context. In all of Alegria’s work, a cross-cultural exchange between the
Americas is always present, carefully defining Afro-Peruvian jazz music as the newest voice to come from Latin America.
