Spanish flamenco @ OKeclecticFEST
Saturday, May 11, 2019 at 10:00 pm - 11:30 pm
Reflejos Flamencos has performed Spanish music and dance for over 20 years with many of Spain’s top artists, and we are proud to team with Duet Jazz to present the great art of flamenco at the inaugural OKeclecticFEST. Guitarist Johnny Beard studied with well known musicians such as René Heredia, Roberto Castellón, Pedro Cuadra, and Chuscales, and he has performed at many flamenco festivals. An expert craftsman, he also builds flamenco guitars and cajons. Johnny’s daughter Lexi Allen began her formal dance training at age five and soon began performing with her father. Lexi was chosen by internationally acclaimed flamenco dancer Maria Benitez to be a soloist at many of her flamenco presentations. Lexi has studied and performed with many of Spain’s leading flamenco artists, as well. After returning from studying in Seville, she was invited to teach flamenco dance with the Maria Benitez Institute for Spanish Arts in Santa Fe, NM for the 2005 Flamenco Workshop. She has served as guest choreographer and professor of dance at Oral Roberts University and currently teaches flamenco dance with FlamencoTULSA. Reflejos Flamencos also includes her husband Dylan Allen on cajon, and Adriana on vocals.
