Unrivaled flamenco masters Casa Patas return to Miami Dade County Auditorium with their newest show, RAIZ DE 4, created by and featuring Rafael Peral and Marisa Adame.
RAIZ DE 4 honors the art of Flamenco by delving into its most primitive roots, evoking the convergence of cultures and the folklore of Spain. The work expresses the purest styles of flamenco, some of which are romances, martinetes, fandangos and soleares, conveyed through the inspired and moving performances by a cast of distinguished dance and musical artists. Song (cante), dance (baile), guitar (guitarra), and percussion (percusión) seamlessly transmit a genuine love for this art form and take the audience on an intensely authentic and unswerving journey of sensations, emotions and flawless artistic execution.
