Sueños Gitanos: Ensemble and Musicians

Denver, CJ Alicea, Mary, and Leah

Sueños Gitanos (“gypsy dreams”) is a flamenco-inspired ensemble that combines the passion and spirit of Spanish flamenco music with local Richmond talent and inspiration. While flamenco song forms are the foundation for all our tunes, our classical and jazz backgrounds guide our musical voices and interpretations.  Sueños Gitanos began with guitarists Leah and Denver in June 2010, playing original flamenco arrangements inspired by the music of Sabicas and Paco Peña. We soon added trumpet player Mary Lawrence Hicks to capture the rich melodies of flamenco cante and percussionist CJ Alicea to accent the quirky rhythms of flamenco tradition.  Percussionist CJ Wolfe joined us in VCU's Flamenco festival, and bassist Brian Cruse played in our recent album recording (to be launched in spring 2013).  Our tunes combine the sounds of Spanish guitar traditions, modern flamenco artists (especially Gerardo Nuñez, Moraito, Oscar Herrero and Juan Martín), and original material by Leah and Mary. Audiences know and love Sueños Gitanos for its flowing melodies, colorful guitar harmonies, and lively energy and charm.
