Flamenco Carolina represents the flamenco art form of song, dance and instrumental music associated with the folkloric musical traditions of Southern Spain. This music tradition includes tambourines, bells, wooden castanets and guitar with articulated movements which reflect the rich history of this culture. This Durham-based flamenco group consists of eight dancers, a guitarist and a singer dedicated to preserving flamenco through performance and education. They have performed for various organizations and schools, bringing the passion of flamenco to the Triangle community.
They have also sponsored workshops by visiting artists from Spain and the U.S. conducted by such luminaries as Belén Maya, Javier Heredia Fernández, José Luis de la Paz, Ricardo Marlow, La Meira, and Flamenco Vivo Carlota Santana, among others.
