    Hello Yaelisa,

    I attended your show in Kuumbwa Jazz on March the 28th. I was a student of Flamenco many years ago and am planning on going back to school later this year. Right now, I am taking a world music class and decided to do my concert review based on your show. Could you tell me the name of the songs that were played that night? which was the solo song played by el Rubio?

    The show was awesome and I want to see Caminos Flamencos again! Bravo!

      Hello Maria, thank you for writing!
      Well, we do so many shows and that March 28th show was a long time ago! Thanks for being there,we always have a great time at Kuumbwa. I believe El Rubio played two solos, the first one without any singing was a Zapateado, the second one was a Bulerias. They are only songs if they are sung, so these we called palos, or styles. Let me know if you need any more info! Yaelisa
