Canté Flamenco with NM native Vicente Griego "El Cartucho"
March 13 - April 19
Mondays & Wednesdays, 3:30pm-4:30pm
Location TBD • $150 1x/wk • $300 2x/wk

Students will learn the technique of singing Flamenco, or Canté Flamenco, from Vicente Griego who grew up in Dixon, NM. “Flamenco is world history wrapped up and expressed as an art form,” Griego says. It comes from the south of Spain, which was a crossroads for Greeks, Romans, Goths and Celts from Europe, and Moors and Jews from North Africa, and those who fled to avoid the Spanish Inquisition, including the Gypsies—thus forming the DNA of flamenco, “the world art form forged in Southern Spain.” As a singer Griego brings great presence to his performances. His artistic name, El Cartucho, is one he took to honor his grandfather, a miner who spent most of his life underground and who was called El Cartucho, literally a bombshell or cartridge. Griego’s huge voice is a blast indeed. In performance, he says, “at some point something has to blow.”
