Val Ramos Flamenco Ensemble will get you dancing to the sounds and sights of music from the Andes to Andalusia,
the rhythmic origins of Andean fusion and Flamenco.
Viva Quetzal provides "a sampling of all the diverse musical traditions that exist in the Americas and beyond...
melodious rhythms with an exuberant, non-stop level of energy..." according to Rafael Charres of Cashbox Magazine
The Val Ramos Flamenco Ensemble lives up to the finest traditions of Flamenco with repertoire and performances
that capture the roots of this musical culture from Andalusia in Spain and yet add modernity and freshness in keeping
with the times and dynamic nature of this unique cultural expression. The ensemble performs as both an instrumental
group as well as in conjunction with traditional "cuadro Flamenco" artists that include singers, dancers, guitarists,
and cajoneros. Traditional dance costumes and Flamenco "cante" (song) textures meet modern harmonies and
instrumentation resulting in a most enjoyable musical and dance experience.
