FIRST FRIDAY JUERGA–OCTOBER 6
A juerga is a kind of flamenco jam session where there is no distinction between audience and performers and everyone takes part, supporting each other in collective playing, singing, and dancing.
The unique component in Pasión y Arte’s juergas is that the invitation to participate is open to all genres of music, singing, dance, and spoken word. Special guest musicians and dancers – both professional flamencos, students, aficionados, artists from other Latino and non-Latino traditions – are invited to each juerga.
Date: October 6
Location: 6411 Overbrook Avenue, Philadelphia
BYOB and please bring snacks to share!
