Join Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council’s Arts Service for an evening of Latin Music and Dance
Thu, June 10, 2021
Roe Valley Arts and Cultural Centre is looking forward to the return of the talented Los Dramaticos for a wonderful acoustic recording as part of its Northern Lights Sessions.
Made up of Victor Henriquez (charango, spanish guitar, vocals) and Paddy Anderson (flamenco guitar, vocals), over the last decade Los Dramaticos has established a reputation as a much sought-after live act, most recently with their hugely successful sold-out Fire in the Blood tour.
The duo perform dazzling songs and instrumental pieces from around Latin America and Spain, with a fusion of flamenco and Andean traditions. This reflects their heritage: Victor is a master charango player from Valparaíso in Chile while Paddy is one of the most accomplished flamenco guitarists in the UK and Ireland. His artistic path began in Seville 20 years ago, and developed during his many years living and studying music in Granada, Andalucia.
Los Dramaticos have been performing at festivals and theatres around Ireland and the UK along with long running residencies in their home city of Belfast for the past number of years.
In connection with the Los Dramaticos concert, Roe Valley Arts and Cultural Centre is also running a dancing together class on Wednesday 16th June at 8pm where you can learn how to dance with a partner to enjoy the virtual concert to the fullest. Husband and wife dance partners, Tonya Sheina Batts and Steve Batts of Echo Echo dance Theatre Company will give you some simple tips and pointers to help you have fun moving together.
You can have a go with a dance partner in your home or bubble. If you don't have a dance partner, don't worry, you can still join in and learn some tips to enjoy dancing solo to the concert. You can access the class via the Facebook channels from 8pm.
Watch and learn from the comfort of your own home and get ready to be transported to sunny Latin America!
Both videos will be available via our Facebook and Youtube channels after the concert is over if you miss them.
