Soundscapes of Spain: From Flamenco Roots to Fusion
Renowned flamenco artists Sonia Olla and Ismael Fernández (Madonna, Ricky Martin) join pianist and Berklee faculty member Olivia Pérez Collellmir and her acclaimed musicians to present an impassioned evening of music and dance from Spain.
Featuring the captivating sounds of flamenco, fused with jazz, Latin influences, and classical stylings, the concert explores Spain’s traditional folkloric roots and its contemporary composers, creating a universal sound with no musical boundaries.
The evening also features a premiere performance by Pérez Collellmir’s new Berklee Spanish Music Ensemble, representing the culmination of its fall semester collaboration. The orchestra is conducted by Jerry Gates, a professor in the Contemporary Writing and Production Department.
