Perennial flamenco favorites Casa Patas return to Benaroya Hall with their newest show, Raíz de 4, created by and starring Rafael Peral and Marisa Adame. Raíz de 4 was born out of the admiration and esteem for flamenco by delving into its most primitive roots — those very origins which evoke the convergence of cultures and the folklore of Spain. The purest styles of flamenco — romances (ballads), martinetes, fandangos and soleares — are brought into the forefront in a performance made up of a cast of distinguished artists. Song (cante), dance (baile), guitar (guitarra) and percussion (percusión) come together on stage in a most natural fashion, while they convey a genuine love for this art form and take the audience on a simple and unswerving journey of feelings, sensations and emotions.
