¡Con Fuego! Spanish Music & Dance
¡Con Fuego! (With Fire!) is a passionate cross-fertilization of flamenco dance and Spanish classical music. Founded in 2006 by award winning American guitar virtuoso Aaron Larget-Caplan, ¡Con Fuego! explores Spanish classical music and original flamenco dance and song in an exhilarating journey of Iberian music and the folkloric traditions!
Joined by international flamenco dancer/singer/choreographer La Conja, the duo creates an exhilarating flamenco-classical fusion program for a night of hypnotic dance, virtuosic guitar, longing melodies, & silky castanets.
For their Portland Debut they will be joined by cellist Jerry Bobbe.
