Following the first "Celtic & Flamenco Night" that sold out La Peña Cultural Center last January, the show returns Saturday, Aug. 29. Lovers of world music will again witness the convergence of two powerful, ancient strains that have evolved into what we know today as flamenco and neo-Celtic music.
Beginning at 8 pm, three Celtic harps and violin, flamenco guitar, and lute-cuatro will meet in a rare concert featuring the acclaimed flamenco dancer Fanny Ara and Celto-Rican singer/songwriter Meli Rivera.
Not to be missed! The last performance back in January was stellar!
Is this class still going?

Some of San Francisco's most acclaimed musicians join the Bay Area Latin vocalist Ana Nitmar for a vibrant and soulful concert. They will be performing timeless tunes that blend jazz with Brazilian rhythms, Italian ballads, and Latin music. Ana Nitmar is a singer-songwriter, who "radiates with a vocal prowess full of experience and expression." (Jesse Varela, from Latin Beat Magazine, Sep. 2007.)
Musicians: Marcie Brown, Claudio Silva, Micha Patri, Pedro Rosales and guest artist brazilian guitarist Carlos Oliveira.
In collaboration with vocalists Lynn Tousey, Rosa Los Santos; and De Rompe y Raja Cultural Association.
About Ana Nitmar latest music project:
If the music that touches us most is music that speaks directly to our best impulses toward living, loving and the joy of creating, then surely the world will heartily welcome the release of Latin vocalist Ana Nitmars first CD, Forest in Spring, along with Ana Nitmars emergence as a delightful, effervescent singer on the Latin jazz/World music stage.
Ana Nitmar, blessed with a beautiful voice puts her vocal instrument to delightful use on her new CD, singing in Spanish, English, Portuguese and Italian.
Ana Nitmar, artfully displays her musical skills and infectious joie de vivre on Forest in Spring. She infuses the CD with a triumphantly joyful spirit, inspired by the grand diversity of color and life contained in the tropical rain forests of her homeland Guatemala. Indeed it is the rain forest itself from which Ana Nitmar derives a great deal of her artistic inspiration.
May Cavallaro (San Francisco Jazz Vocalist) says:
Listening to Ana Nitmars new CD Forest in Spring is like taking a lovely vacation to a warm climate. Her voice is haunting and can be at times filled with longing as in the song sung in Spanish, Querer, or joyous and uplifting as in the song Samba de Bencao sung in Portugese. The CD opens with one of her original compositions, Forest in Spring, also in Spanish, that paints the picture of her homeland, Guatemala, and the beauty of the tropical rain forest. There is wonderful musicianship throughout, but the recording is noteworthy for the wonderful spirit of Ana Nitmar that shines through in all 12 tracks and 4 languages. A beautiful and very listenable CD.

Good prices, Great food. They have a great waitress that helped us last time and she was very frindly (from Honduras) but once we got a man that was lost and very slow.
The Peruvian food is excellent and the portions are big. The ceviche is the best.
