COMIENZO: Flamenco Tablao
COMIENZO transforms the Parlor Room in Northampton into a Tablao, the intimate venue in which flamenco is traditionally performed. The show embodies the deeply personal and communal nature of flamenco. This show celebrates new beginnings. COMIENZO, which translates from spanish to ‘I Begin’, honors the strength and courage of taking a step forward into the unknown. It recognizes that we do not begin alone, but with the support and love of our community.

COMIENZO features world-class flamenco artists Chuscales (guitar) and Jesús Muñoz (Dance and Percussion), and Felix de Lola (singer) whose mastery and unique styles influence flamenco communities internationally. COMIENZO is produced by flamenco dancer, Amalyah Leader, who first discovered flamenco as a high schooler in the Pioneer Valley with Inés Arrubla. “This is my first introduction into producing and I wanted Northampton to experience something special, so I went an extra step to feature these amazing world-class artists in an intimate setting.” -Amalyah Leader.

Since then Amalyah has studied intensely in New York City and Spain. Amalyah is grateful to have this opportunity to share her artistry and production with the Pioneer Valley community. This show is both local and deeply universal. Together, through music and dance, they ask all of us to think with our hearts and move with our community.

Artists: Amalyah Leader (dancer/producer), “Chuscales” (guitar), Felix de Lola (singer), Jesús Muñoz (dance/percussion)
