    Noche Azul de Esperanza: Romance Gitano

    As part of Esperana Peace and Justice Center’s monthly Noche Azul concert series, Azul Barrientos will take her audience through a journey of Romani culture through a blend of music and multi-media story telling.

     

    The Romani are often known as “gypsies,” but this term is seen as a racial slur. The ethnic culture of the Roma living in Europe has formed and developed through a long and complex process of continuous active interaction with the culture of their surrounding population. The world has been captivated by the Romani culture as can be seen by popular culture while at the same time the Romani people continue to face discrimination and persecution.  One of the cultural contributions of the Romani people includes Flamenco music and dance.

     

    Azul will be accompanied by musicians Aaron Prado, George Prado and Nina Rodriquez with a special performance by Flamenco dancer Monica Moncivais “La Muñeca.”
