"Emanating on-stage magnetism and artistic talent” - Historia de un Amor: Flamenco Jazz
Award-winning flutist and bansuri player, Lara Wong and flamenco guitarist, Melón Jiménez, make flamenco their universal musical language to traverse musical territories. Their music ebbs and flows with elegance and emotion, perfectly fusing the soul of flamenco with the harmonic brilliance of jazz and the rhythmic improvisations of Indian music. The groundbreaking couple first met on stage in 2018 in the flamenco jazz capital of Madrid, and ever since then, they have continued to grace audiences worldwide.
"…the result is stunning; it is fluid, it is sensual and fully embodies the spirit of flamenco: virtuosity and passion." - Marc Fournier, CBC Radio-Canada
"Melón Jiménez is a guitarist to watch. He has an alluring style that presents prodigiously performed, masterfully crafted compositions, exposing guitar complexities and a skill for bridging tradition and modernity" - World Music Central
"Wong stands out on the flamenco scene." - Ottawa Citizen
