Mojacar Flamenco – TICKETS ($17/$12)
Led by guitarist and composer Stephen Dick, flamenco jazz trio Mojacar Flamenco offers a unique blend of flamenco and Latin Jazz. Mojacar was formed in 1996 after Stephen and his partner, dancer and percussionist Katerina Tomás, spent creative time at an artist’s retreat in southern Spain. Since then, the group has toured the U.S. and Canada with Concrete Blonde, performed in concert across the Southwest, released two CDs and received awards from the Spanish Ministry of Culture and the Center For Creative Innovation. Stephen and Katerina have also each received L.A. Treasures Awards in recognition of their work teaching flamenco. Multi-instrumental percussionist Johnny Sandoval joined the group in 2004. Johnny has performed and recorded with a wide array of artists including Arturo Sandoval, Chuchito Valdez, Ry Cooder, Jim Keltner, and Smokey Robinson. In June 2020, Mojácar will premiere Toque Jondo, an evening of flamenco dance theater, at the El Portal Theater in North Hollywood.
