NOVEMBER EVENTS

AUGUST EVENTS

Storytelling and Flamenco Event with Michelle Adam & Ronaldo Baca

June 23 at 5:30 p.m. in Taos, New Mexico

At SOMOS, 108 Civic Dr., Suite B, Taos

​$10 suggested donation


Michelle Adam has performed storytelling to Ronaldo Baca’s magnificent Flamenco

guitar and cante here in Albuquerque, at Barnes and Noble and a handful of other

places to large audiences. She has also presented work on the West Coast and in

Buenos Aires, Argentina with a renowned Argentinean guitarist, Nicolas del Cid.


With 20 years experience, Ronaldo Baca has shared his talent here in New Mexico,

at the National Hispanic Cultural Center and other venues, and across the U.S.

and in Spain. He’s performed with María Benitez Second Company and recorded

with poet Jimmy Santiago Baca, among many others, after a lifetime of studying guitar locally and in Spain.  

 
Child of Duende is a magical story of a young girl in Málaga, Spain whose grandmother names her Duende, a word meaning the spirit of the earth. She dances with Gypsies, journeys with a nature spirit below the sea, and has dreams that ultimately transform her reality and that of Ingrid, a journalist who travels to her childhood home of Málaga to cover the story of supernatural vines. Ultimately, Ingrid’s return home reveals a truth that has been buried in the ground for millennia. Touted by New York Times Bestselling Author John Perkins and described by world-renowned teacher and award-winning author Sandra Ingerman as “a beautiful story that will take you into magical and mystical realms,” Child of Duende is a journey home.  Event
