If you’re a fan of flamenco music and dance, you won’t want to miss this Saturday’s show by a crew of international artists who are performing at the Sea of Glass Center for the Arts.
Lluvia Flamenca will feature Tucson flamenco dancer Mele Martinez, French singer Jose Cortes, Cuban guitarist Andres Vadin and two Venezuelan artists, percussionist Diego “El Nego” Alvarez and pianist Gonzalo Grua.

The show, choreographed by Fanny Ara, is titled "Luz" and is a celebration of motherhood and artistry, according to organizer Angelina Ramirez, who writes:

In Spanish, dar a luz means to give birth. This definition symbolizes the heart of Luz— a flamenco project honoring mothers who live and work as artists. Luz will explore the labors and joys found in balancing a life as caregiver and creator. It will feature choreography by award-winning artist, Fanny Ara, introduce world-class flamenco musicians from across the globe, and present American flamenco dancer and mother Mele Martinez. Luz seeks to inspire, to embolden, and to enlighten those who recognize the synergy between motherhood and artistry.
The show is at 8 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 3, at the Sea of Glass Center for the Arts, 330 E. Seventh St. Tickets are $26. Find more information here.
