Flamenco dancer Savannah Fuentes with Diego Amador Jr. (guitar): Eterno, El Flamenco Vive
(Note: The April 8 performance announced earlier has now been consolidated into the Monday, April 11 show)
On Monday, April 11 at 7:30pm, Seattle-based Flamenco dancer, Savannah Fuentes returns to Port Townsend’s Palindrome Hall to present her latest show, Eterno, El Flamenco Vive, accompanied by Diego Amador Jr. on guitar.
Savannah has toured the West Coast extensively for the past 10 years, presenting Flamenco in its raw form: voice, dance, and guitar. In fall 2019 she brought Diego Amador Jr. from Sevilla on tour and they opted to become a duo once the pandemic hit. Diego comes from flamenco royalty, the legendary Amador family. His uncles Raimundo and Rafael formed the revered flamenco rock band, Pata Negra, and his father, Diego Amador, is considered one of the few Flamenco masters on the piano. Eterno, el Flamenco Vive promises to be a deeply emotional and transcendent experience. West Coast tour dates at www.savannahf.com
