FabCollab and Tablao Flamenco Toronto present an intimate matinee performance by some of Toronto’s most treasured flamenco performers, including dancer Kiyo Asaoka, who will perform an original piece that honours her Japanese heritage, accompanied by musicians from Ten Ten Music Collective. Come for the show and mingle with the festival artists, who will be in attendance at this favourite underground venue. Let’s celebrate our Toronto flamenco “familia” as we bring the inaugural edition of the F for Flamenco festival to a close together, as a community.
