Flamenco & Beyond at the 'Flamenco Festival USA 2012'  in New York City

La Shica, Muchachito Bombo Infierno and Canteca de Macao join Flamenco Festival USA 2012.

There's a lot more to the music of modern Spain than flamenco. And this season, Flamenco Festival 2012 will bring to New York City some of the country's most creative and charismatic artists in a 3-night series entitled Flamenco & Beyond on March 8, 10 and 11.

Singer/dancer La Shica, rumba-rocker Muchachito Bombo Infierno and street-partiers Canteca de Macao will introduce New Yorkers to a new generation of musicians that embrace flamenco's roots while re-inventing them, each in their own unique style, updating Spanish music for the 21st century.

La Shica and Muchachito Bombo Infierno will be making their North American debuts at Flamenco Festival 2012, while Canteca de Macao will be following up their successful 2010 festival debut with a new presentation of music from their just-released CD Nunca es Tarde.

All of the artists share common roots in Spanish music and the mestizaje, or mix of cultures, that originally gave birth to flamenco. Each, however, demonstrates a singular style that even the most adventurous of audiences can identify with.

La Shica will debut her powerful mix of flamenco and copla at Le Poisson Rouge on Thursday, March 8th at 8:00pm.

Two days later, Muchachito Bombo Infierno will debut his rumba-spiked rock in a multi-media show that features live paintings by artist Santos de Veracruz at SOB'S on Saturday, March 10th at 12:00 midnight, while Canteca de Macao will bring their musical carnival to SOB's on Sunday March 11 at 9:00pm.
