New Perspectives in Flamenco History and Research Symposium
Held in conjunction with Festival Flamenco Internacional, New Perspectives in Flamenco History and Research Symposium is a biennial event that is a comprehensive gathering of theorists, practitioners, artists, patrons, and members of the public, each providing a unique opportunity to discuss various aspects of the art form of flamenco including its history in New Mexico and abroad.
