Illinois Flamenco-Jazz Collective
“This event features guitarist David Chiriboga and Sammi Micklewright of Chicago’s Ensemble Español Spanish Dance and Theater Troupe. They will be reunited for this performance with the all-star jazz ensemble of the Illinois Flamenco-Jazz Project (IFJP) and the community-based music and dance performers of the Illinois Flamenco-Jazz Collective (IFJC). Together they blend the in-the-moment excitement of traditional flamenco music with the improvisational techniques and orchestral colors of jazz.”
