Traditional Mexican music and dance.
Cascada de Flores specializes in achingly beautiful songs from Latin America’s golden age, including bolero to fill your heart to bursting, rancheras to break it and guarachas to make you want to jump up and dance. Your ears will be filled with the alluring voice of Arwen Lawrence, the delicate playing of guitar and vocals by Jorge Liceaga, accompanied by the strings of the bass and violin. Cascada de Flores offers an evening of song, zapateado (foot stomping) and nostalgia, peppered with a bit of creative Mexican humor In concert. Cascada de Flores loves to invite their audience into the music; the songs spark joy in children and deep nostalgia for elders, from whatever background. Additionally, every song, each instrument has a story, and the ensemble loves to tell them.
