It will be one hot night as Benise, “The Prince of Spanish Guitar,” brings his Emmy Award winning production Fuego!..The Spirit of Spain to the RP Funding Center as part of his 2019-20 global tour.
For Benise, music has always been a journey. From his humble beginnings as a street performer, to being featured on the #1 rated show in the USA – Dancing With The Stars, and performing around the world. “I wanted to push the boundaries of Nuevo Flamenco/Spanish guitar while combining the elements of dance and theater. This show is a celebration of all the shows we’ve done over the last 15 years,” comments composer, virtuoso guitarist and creative force behind the event, Benise.
Armed with his Spanish guitar, Benise will take the audience on an unprecedented and epic adventure through Spanish Flamenco, Cuban Salsa, Brazilian Samba, Parisian Waltz, exotic drumming, including the ‘Dress of a Thousand Roses! This mixture of musical cultures caught the attention of the Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) and led to his 2006-2007 Nights of Fire! production that has aired on many PBS-affiliated stations, and won an Emmy Award.
