Raúl Rodríguez to Close “The Body Questions” Conference

We have one more schedule update concerning our upcoming conference, “The Body Questions,” and we think it’s one you’ll enjoy. Our friend, scholar and flamenco artist Raúl Rodríguez, will be closing out the conference with a performance at La Nacional‘s intimate performance space. (And if you missed our previous announcement, please be sure to check it. The conference dates have changed from Oct 16-17 to Oct 15-16.)

Raúl Rodríguez in Concert
“La Razón Eléctrica” 
(AfroFlamenco de Ida y Vuelta)

Musician and cultural anthropologist, Raúl Rodríguez will present the songs of his two albums and books, Razón de Son (2014) and La Raíz Eléctrica (2017), in which he compiles more than twenty years of creative research on flamenco music and its connection with the rhythms of the Afro-Caribbean-Andalusian cultural matrix. Through the introduction of a new instrument, the Tres Flamenco (a mix between flamenco guitar and cuban tres), this special solo concert will take the audience on a round trip journey linking historical memory with cultural action, in an open dialogue between past and present, research and creativity, reasons and songs.

On sale now through Eventbrite for $20 ($15 student/senior). Tickets will be available at the door for $25 ($20).

Drinks and light refreshments are available to purchase at the venue. La Nacional also has a full restaurant serving traditional Spanish cuisine, so why not join us for happy hour before the concert? The restaurant has generously offered a 10% discount to conference attendees, so if you are attending, be sure to save your program or ID tag to present.
