Maharajah Flamenco Trio will present a program of Flamenco Nuevo, which blends traditional Spanish rhythms with jazz, classical and world music, at 7:30 p.m. Feb. 19, in the Porter Byrum Welcome Center, Wake Forest University.
Founded in 2011, Maharajah Flamenco Trio is the brainchild of Silviu Ciulei. After successfully leading flamenco bands in Romania and Tennessee, Ciulei wanted a smaller group than his previous endeavors, more intimate, with players virtuosic enough to fully accompany and realize his compositions. He found David Cobb and Ramin Yazdanpanah.
In 2013, they released their first studio album, “Encuentro.”
Admission is free.
