      On October 29, at 3 p.m. and 8 p.m., Ritmo y Soniquete takes the stage at the Cultch (1895 Venables Street).

      Presented by Kasandra Flamenco,  the flamenco showcase features performances by dancer Kasandra "La China", vocalist Miguel Rosendo, festero Luis de la Tota, and bailaor Jose Manuel Alvarez.

      Ritmo y Soniquete explores the roots of flamenco, where its essence resides in the expression of the song and the rhythm.

      Of the show, Kasandra "La China" says that "These artists embody the dark, primal side of Flamenco, what we call Coraje. Literally translated it means courage, but it means to show your ferocity, guts and take emotional and artistic risk."

      Tickets for Ritmo y Soniquete start at $38 and are available online.
