12 Tiempos is a Flamenco dance company comprised of artists from San Juan, Puerto Rico. Their mission is to present, preserve and honor Flamenco traditions and Spanish culture through dance and music with a fresh and unique twist. They have performed worldwide from Spain to New York, and from Mexico City to San Diego.
Their new tour, "Puerto Rico Aflamencao," is dedicated to the pain and suffering of Puerto Rico in the aftermath of Hurricanes Irma and María. The group will perform various well-known Puerto Rican songs set to flamenco rhythms.
Part of the Extended Play series:
World Music Wednesday - Extended Play is a series of free concerts curated by the Old Town School of Folk Music and funded by the Chicago Community Trust. Extended Play presents high calibre world music artists at three venues across the city; The Old Town School of Folk Music, the Segundo Ruiz Belvis Cultural Center, and the DuSable Museum of African American History. Artists are selected in close consultation with partner venues to ensure that they reflect the programming objectives and mission of all institutions. Artists will perform for three consecutive days in these venues in an effort to make the significant cultural programming at the Old Town School of Folk Music available to other institutions and communities on the South and West sides of Chicago.
