Friday June 11th 7 pm
Born in Seattle to parents of Puerto Rican and Irish ancestry, Savannah’s fascination with Flamenco dance (baile) and singing (cante) came to her in early childhood, fueled by watching a Flamenco performance on television.
Savanna considers Flamenco a lifelong study, an artistic journey. She began in her late teens that continues to this day. She has studied with many notable Flamenco artists including Guadiana, Joaquin Grilo, Eva Yerbabuena, El Farru, and Isabel Bayon. Ms. Fuentes attributes her formation as an artist to her most significant mentor, Maestra Sara de Luis.
One of the only touring artists in the Pacific Northwest region with deep connections to Flamenco culture. Regina Hacker, former art critic for the Seattle Post-Intelligencer said of Savanna’s performance v“A real Flamenco, straight and stunning,”
Savannah has independently produced and danced in over 300 performances and workshops featuring internationally recognized Spanish Flamenco artists, including Diego Amador jr, Carlos de Jacoba, Saray Munoz, and Jesus Montoya.
She regularly tours throughout Washington, Oregon, California, Nevada, Utah, Montana, Idaho, Colorado, and Arizona, performing for communities that would otherwise be unable to enjoy this exciting artform in the intimate setting of live theater.
Diego Amador Jr., Flamenco singer, guitarist, percussionist, and pianist. A native of Spain and born in Seville to a family considered Flamenco royalty.
His father is the celebrated Flamenco pianist Diego Amador and Diego’s uncles Rafael and Raimundo Amador, are the founders of the popular Flamenco band “Pata Negra.”
His musical training began when he was still a baby and when his Dad taught Diego his first flamenco notes. Diego’s flamenco career took off when he began performing and touring with some of Spain’s top Flamenco artists, including Remedios Amaya, La Susi, Lole Montoya, Farruquito, and Joaquin Cortes.
