Flamenco Por La Vida

Welcome to the Tiny Desert Concert. This is when we bring local Arizona bands into the KJZZ studios to play a couple songs for us and talk a bit about the music.

For this month, we hear from Flamenco Por La Vida.

This is not your typical band — rather the group is comprised of a singer, a guitarist, and a flamenco dancer. Founded by Angelina Ramirez, the group is dedicated to bringing the heart and soul of flamenco to the Valley.  

The Show's Steve Goldstein spoke with Ramirez about flamenco’s essence — what is it and what does she and her group do differently from "traditional" flamenco.

You can find the group on their website and on Facebook.

If you’re in a band or know of one that you’d like to hear play at the KJZZ studios, send us a note at theshow@kjzz.org.

This performance was filmed at KJZZ's youth media center, SPOT 127.
