Check out this review of an event called Salsa, Soul, Sushi & Samosas At The Palace, which went down last Friday. It was quite the cultural event and, apparently, a lot of fun, too. (There’s video as well.)
Flamenco fans haven’t heard any regular opportunities to watch the Sevilliana art form since the Marriott’s Blu Mediterranean Grill cancelled Flamenco Louisville’s monthly floor shows there. You chance for this month will be at Uncle Slayton s on June 29, when the professional company will present a tablao-style show, complete with tangos, bulerías, soleas, faruccas, sevillanas and perhaps a guajira or a taranta. It’ll be the last FL show at Uncle Slayton’s, since that venue is closing at the end of July. Tickets for the performance at $10.
