Flamenco Aqui y
Ahora (Flamenco Here and Now) is a flamenco group
comprised of local musicians and dancers. Dancer Lori
Friedlander has been a dancer for almost 30 years and
claims Meiserville as her home! She is joined by
dancer Kim Bartlett and dancer Lara Vracarich
who has been around Flamenco since birth but just recently
started dancing. The dancers will be accompanied by Paco
de Nada who has been playing guitar for over 4 decades.
Rounding out the ensemble is Ricardo Kearns, a
descendant of the Beavertown Kearns family, on percussion
where he has been honing his skills for over 20 years and
playing cajon for 7 years. Cajon is a box drum with
primarily Peruvian origins but has taken root in Cuba and
has even found a place as "the" percussion instrument of the
Spanish flamenco ensemble.
