La Vida Apasionada

La Vida Apasionada

What a fun project, an immersion into a culture that is so colorful and exciting! All the rhythms in the dances on this album are in some way or another, forms of “Flamenco,” the famous Spanish Dance form. We hope that you are seduced by the passion and pure enjoyment of life that are so much a part of the rhythms and melodies of Spain. ¡Salud! —Steven
