. . . al Sur is a music/dance ensemble specializing in the performance of original and traditional Spanish Flamenco art forms. Featuring some of the finest performers in the region, . . . al Sur presents high-octane dance, vocal, and instrumental numbers firmly rooted in the rich Andalusian gypsy tradition. Most numbers are original works composed by the ensemble and feature timbre colors ranging from expressive, exotic vocals and traditional dance footwork to frenetic guitar, throbbing percussion, and the plaintive tones of the bowed contrabass. The ensemble consists of Uraguayan vocalist/dancer Graciela Perrone (formerly of Ballet Espanol), guitarist Gareth Jones (formerly of Ballet Espanol), bassist Sid King (U of L faculty and formerly of the Louisville Orchestra), and percussionist Brian Kushmaul (Louisville Orchestra and U of L faculty).
