Aire and grace: En­tre­fla­menco

Pasatiempo - - RANDOM ACTS -

Santa Fe of­fers fla­menco like New Or­leans of­fers jazz. En­tre­fla­menco founder An­to­nio Gran­jero, from Jerez de la Fron­tera in Spain, and his wife, com­pany co-di­rec­tor Este­fa­nia Ramirez (right), cre­ated their own cabaret-style per­form­ing space and fla­menco acad­emy at 135 W. Palace Ave. last sum­mer. Fla­menco shows will be held at 7:30 p.m. nightly, ex­cept Tues­days, at El Fla­menco de Santa Fe Per­for­mance Venue from Thurs­day, June 29, through Sept. 3. Gran­jero is known for his aire, a term re­fer­ring to a cer­tain swag­ger some fla­menco dancers have. He and Ramirez toured with María Benítez and have been per­form­ing in Santa Fe since 2011. They set­tled here and opened a school in 2015. Join­ing the com­pany this sum­mer will be Span­ish dancer Lak­shmi Basile “La Chimi,” gui­tarist José Valle Fa­jardo “Chus­cales,” Barcelo­nan singer and per­cus­sion­ist Fran­cisco “Yiyi” Orozco, and bassist Marco Topo from Mi­lan. For tick­ets ($25-$40, dis­counts avail­able) and in­for­ma­tion, visit www.en­tre­fla­ or call 505-209-1302. — Michael Wade Simp­son
