SERGIO MENDOZA Y LA ORKESTA
Sergio Mendoza y La Orkestra: It’s a safe bet that most of us haven’t heard the term “Indie Mambo” to describe a group before now, because such a style simply did not exist until young Sergio Mendoza invented it in late 2009, in Tucson, Arizona. The impetus? Mendoza was participating in an annual benefit event held at the world famous Club Congress, called ‘The Great Cover-Up,’ and had chosen the legendary Cuban bandleader Perez Prado as his coveree, as the rules of the event dictated. But combining that influence, as well as Cumbia and other Latin styles, with psychedelia-tinged rock music proved to be a formula that was extremely palatable, nay – savory, to Arizona music fans and Mendoza’s fellow musicians.

Flamenco Por La Vida not only shares the passions of dance but gives the community authenticity of Music, Song and Life through the historic art form from the South of Spain, Andalucia. Flamenco has played a very important roll in Angelina’s life, it only made sense to share these captivating influences. Moving to Phoenix after receiving 2.5 years of extensive training at the National Conservatory of Flamenco Arts in Albuquerque, New Mexico and traveling to Sevilla, she aspired to give the experience of instruction and guidance she was so fortunate of receiving.
With the help of her friends FPLV made their debut in 2009 at Tucson’s First Flamenco and Spanish Festival. Here at home the community has continued to support FPLV at a weekly show at Gallo Blanco Cafe & Bar located at The Clarendon Hotel. The growth of FPLV has opened doors for various teachers from different backgrounds and views to provide education. Classes are offered valley wide from highly skilled and talented artists. Annual auditions are held to support those interested in gaining performance experience and launching careers.
From casual “fiesta” improvisational styling to Solo and Group choreography; FPLV’s mission is teach the neutral aspects of Spanish life to the hardcore expression of authentic gypsy power. “There is something in it for EVERYONE”.
Thank you for supporting Flamenco Por La Vida!
