Andalusian Voices: Tempo of Light

  • On March 11 at 7 pm.
  • At The Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts of Miami-Dade County, 1300 Biscayne Blvd., Miami, FL 33132. Buy tickets.

Tempo of Light is an all-star show featuring some of the leading voices in Spain today, in a virtuosic display ranging from the gypsy roots of Flamenco to modern innovations. Under the musical direction of Isidro Muñoz, composer and producer of Flamenco legends such as Camarón and Enrique Morente, this special evening includes dancer Ana Morales, former principal dancer of Ballet Flamenco de Andalucia.

Carmen Linares’ flamenco intensity, its alchemy of passion…rose to furious, desperate timeless invocations of lost love. Ms. Heredia’s mercurial, impassioned voice was at the center of the music, moving between clarity and rasp, sorrow and rage, tragedy and exultation. Arcangel is a tenor with all the dark tension that characterizes the best flamenco singers, he can sing with terrific attack and excitement, and the rhythmic variety he supplies to a single long coloratura phrase is fascinating.
