Traditional Flamenco and Original Contemporary Flamenco
performing in Houston since 1977; teaching since 1981
"Val and Lucia are that rarity, a duo who prove that one plus one equals many more than two. As flamenco artists each is a virtuoso in his own right; together they have the power, flexibility, coordination, and lyricism of a much larger ensemble. Lucia is a singer and dancer of great impact and range, especially so in live performance. Val is a guitarist of enormous creativity whose solos pay homage to the past while helping to invent a new flamenco tradition, and whose technique would be the envy of any player before the public today. They are great ambassadors for the difficult art of flamenco." ....1999 Quote by Anthony Weller, Classic and Jazz Guitarist; Author; composer (Massachusetts) CDs: The Jon Jarvis Trio with Stephane Grappelli; The Herb Pomeroy Trio; Live at Café Beaujolais.
"OMG, your CD's are fab, they blew my mind. I had no idea you sang, what a wonderful voice, it's so pure and definite. Your interpretations of all the tunes were wonderful. Thanks and I wish you and your equally talented hubby all the luck in the world." ...... 2012 Jesus Moreno, former professional dancer, San Antonio; Teresa & Curro Co; Jose Greco Senior Co.; El Ciro Flamenco Company.
