Volver is a celebration of the poetic heart of Flamenco: the music of the first cry, the first kiss, a call to prayer, the heart’s lament, the joy of living.
The poetry of Leonard Cohen, Federico Garcia Lorca, and Violeta Parra (to name a few) is put to the soulful song of Flamenco. From Spain, the Middle East and the US, performers interpret the fierce, sensual, heartbreaking and joyful aspects of human experience that unite us all.
LIVE MUSIC will accompany the dancers: World-renowned musicians Amir-John Haddad (Guitar, Oud, and Buzuki) and Ali Paris (Vocals and Qanun) join in this new collaboration directed by San Francisco Flamenco Dance Company Founder/Artistic Director, Kerensa DeMars.
Volver returns to the Moorish roots of Flamenco with a first time collaboration between master musicians Amir-John Haddad and Ali Paris along with Syrian percussionist, Faisal Zedan, and the passionate vocals of gypsy Flamenco singer Jose Cortes. These internationally renowned musicians create a stunning score for the San Francisco Flamenco Dance Company’s original choreography.
