Flamenco is a community - like Jazz......everyone is welcome!
Every Wed night at 9PM and every Fri night at 10Pm there is a flamenco show at
Amada Restaurant 217 Chestnut St. Phila.
Usually Wed. is "Flamenco del Encuentro" and Fri. is "De Luna a Lunares" (Cristian Puig y Monica Herrera) and we occasionally join together.
If you love flamenco, come out and make a night of it.
Let's make Philly a flamenco town like NY or DC or SF. Bring your pataita' !
