Bay Area Flamenco Festival: Gonzalo Rubalcaba with Gypsy Flamenco singer Esperanza Fernandez // SF

Bay Area Flamenco Festival: Gonzalo Rubalcaba with Gypsy Flamenco singer Esperanza Fernandez // SF 1

Giant of Latin Jazz, Cuban pianist Gonzalo Rubalcaba. joins extraordinary Spanish Gypsy singer Esperanza Fernández in a sizzling new collaboration!

  • “OH VIDA” A TRIBUTE TO BENY MORE AND MANOLO CARACOL.
  • GONZALO RUBALCABA & ESPERANZA FERNANDEZ IN CONCERT.

Together they celebrate the inimitable Cuban singer Beny Moré (1919-1963) and his Spanish Gypsy counterpoint, the revered flamenco cantaor Manolo Caracol (1909-1973).

Their reinterpretions of such classics as Moré’s “Oh Vida!” and “¿Cómo Fue?” and Caracol’s “Carcelero” and “La Salvaora” build new bridges between Spanish and Cuban song, turning the concept of “ida y vuelta” on its head.
