Flamenco's Leilah Broukhim to return to 92Y [UPDATE]

About a year ago (see blog post here), I advised you to keep watch for flamenco artist Leilah Broukhim who had shown an impressive preview of her developing work, Traces--a blend of Jewish, Iranian and gitano traditional culture--at 92Y. I've just gotten word that Broukhim plans to bring the completed work, now titled Dejando Huellas (Traces), to 92Y on February 25, 2012 as part of Flamenco Festival USA.

Broukhim writes:
Dejando Huellas (Traces) tells the story of a Sephardic woman through time and fuses flamenco with Sephardic and Persian music. We premiered the show to a sold-out audience at this year's Jewish Culture Festival in Krakow and just returned from another successful performance in Paris at the Museum of Art and History of Judaism. For a taste of what to expect on February 25, take a look at the show's promo video.
