"Spanish American outfit Caramelo combines flamenco with funk. Two of the sexiest music genres in one band… Lethal!" Time Out NY
Javier Ruibal, considered one of Spain's national music treasures, performs at Alwan in an enchanting concert of original songs reflecting the many diverse influences of his native Andalusia. An iconic singer, composer and guitarist, his music is distinguished by an innovative style that combines the rhythms and cultures of flamenco, the Maghreb, Sephardic music, jazz and the Caribbean.
Dientes de Caramelo
Dientes de Caramelo is Seville meets Seattle, slamming plaintive Andalusian vocals into soaring guitar lines and meditative electronic blasts of euphoria. An international crew of new world rockers, Dientes de Caramelo bursts through borders and rearranges the flamenco mind.
