Roots: Chus­cales

Pasatiempo - - Random Acts -

Fla­menco gui­tarist Jose Valle “Chus­cales” was raised in a Gypsy fam­ily with deep mu­si­cal roots. He has fur­thered them in his own right. An ex­pa­tri­ate of Spain, Chus­cales was called on to per­form for Prince Felipe of Spain (now King Felipe) when he vis­ited Santa Fe in 2009. The gui­tarist’s fourth an­nual fla­menco hol­i­day con­cert, en­ti­tled Gypsy Pas­sion, may not draw roy­alty, but it fea­tures a num­ber of the best fla­menco artists in the South­west. Spe­cial guests in­clude Va­le­ria Montes (Thurs­day, Dec. 18), Juan Siddi (Dec. 18 and19), and Domino Martinez (Dec. 20). Nightly shows run from Dec. 18 through Dec. 20 at 7:30 p.m. The venue is El Museo Cul­tural de Santa Fe (555 Camino de la Fa­milia). Tick­ets, $30, are avail­able through www.brownpapertick­ — L.B.
