Some collaborations happen in a flash. Completely unplanned and improvisational. Last Thursday, I had the honor of playing with Anna de la Paz, a Spanish Flamenco Artist that hails from Spain and now lives in Nyack, New York.
Anna is fierce. Anna is strong. Anna plays every note like it's her last with the fire and passion of a train rolling full speed ahead.
Oh, ...and she play's castanets !! .... I love this girl !
Djembes and Cajons surrounded by flamenco dancing makes a gorgeous combination of sound -- each instrument influencing the other. It was magic at the market.
Anna is also co-founder of Walk to the Beat, a full day event on July 26th, 2014. The event is free to the public, with percussive music and dance artists performing in venues all over the Nyack village.
