Albuquerque has a flourishing Flamenco culture - this weekend is the Yjastros XXIXth Season, and we went to the opening performance last night!

From their event description:
"The National Institute of Flamenco and the National Hispanic Cultural Center proudly present Yjastros XXIXth Season, debuting the choreographies of Manuela Rios and Pedro Córdoba and presenting the dynamic works of José Maya and Concha Jareño.

Yjastros: The American Flamenco Repertory Company celebrates its 29th season with wisdom, grace, and gut-wrenching honesty as musicians and dancers interpret the fervent and masterful styles and intentions of the iconic flamenco artists visiting Albuquerque from Spain each year through the University of New Mexico’s Visiting Guest Line."

Coming up is the 28th Festival Flamenco International de Albuquerque, June 7 - 13
