Saturday, March 9, 8:00 p.m.: BENISE – The Spanish Guitar
The Spanish Guitar has been hailed as the Latin equivalent of such celebrated music and dance spectacles as Riverdance and Celtic Women.
Leading the audience like a sultry tango, Benise, with the help of his enraptured guitar, is transported to exotic locales in ten countries on a quest for lost passion. Benise’s unique musical style and rock star vibe, holds his audiences captive with the help of exotic drums, Gypsy violin, Flamenco dancers, Brazilian Samba dancers and percussionists, African tribal drummers and Havana horns.
The Spanish Guitar integrates expressive songs, sensual dancers and an ever-changing multi-media stage set with actual footage of Benise’s voyage across the globe through the cobblestone streets of Old Havana, an Arabian Desert, the romantic canals of Venice, the oldest bullring in Spain, a Parisian café and a 2,000 year-old sacred Buddhist temple in India.
