Chris & Lena Jácome provide intimate, inviting and exceptionally exciting flamenco performances that only a perfectly matched pair can manifest. Chris and Lena’s strong partnership and artistic communication keeps audiences mesmerized as they witness an unforgettable flamenco performance and the profound connection of two kindred spirits sharing their love for each other through their art. They return to Prescott after touring in Spain.
Lena Jácome (www.LenaJacome.com) has toured nationally as a flamenco dancer with the CBJ Flamenco Ensemble & Calo Flamenco. She has a BFA in Dance Performance at NWSA in Miami, FL and an MFA in Dance and Choreography from ASU and has studied in Spain. Both Chris & Lena are Roster Artists with Arizona Commission on the Arts.
Chris Burton-Jácome (www.CBJMusic.com) began playing guitar in 1986. While living in Sevilla, Spain, Chris studied flamenco guitar with some of the greatest flamenco performers of this era. Chris music can be heard on the Emmy Award winning PBS special "Flamenco", Television Shows such as “Kyle xy” and “Greek” or on any of his 4 CDs. Chris will soon be releasing his 5th CD entitled, “Levanto”. Smiling proudly, Chris relates “the recording of this CD has been one of the biggest projects of my life and I know that this CD will touch a lot of people, it has something for everyone!”
