A Musical Portrait of Spain through Flamenco and Jazz
Thomas states: “Through these concerts I wish to broaden the understanding of what Spanish music is. Flamenco is evolved folk music from the south of Spain. Rumba, as the Gyspy Kings play, is not flamenco. Paso dobles, Sardanas, Verdiales, Jotas, Alborada ( celtic music) are some of the the major folk styles from Spain. Jazz can add to all these styles harmonic richness and creativity”
