The Taiwanese Canadian Cultural Festival presents Lara Wong Trio
Hailing from the Spanish capital of Madrid, the Lara Wong Trio brings us some of the most exciting music from the flamenco scene today.
This flamenco jazz trio features Lara Wong on flute and bansuri, Melón Jiménez on flamenco guitar, Davide Sampaolo on percussion, and guest dancer Lia Grainger. The dynamite encounter of these four extraordinary artists results in a treasure chest of musical gems that have their origins in flamenco and are embellished with Indian and Jazz influences. Mystical melodies on bamboo bansuri flute and exploratory improvisations on traverse flute are accompanied by dazzling flamenco guitar riffs and sophisticated rhythms on percussion.
