I’ve seen that Ads all month around town about Nights of Fire! opening this week at the El Dorado and it had me curious.
“Benise – Nights of Fire!” will light up the Eldorado Showroom January 24 through April 1, 2012. Hailed as the Latin Riverdance by the LA Times, this world music and dance production takes audience members on an exotic journey through Brazilian samba, Cuban salsa, Spanish flamenco, Argentine tango, even African tribal chants and drums.
In spite of the LA Times proclaimed “Hail as the Latin Riverdance,” I’m still intrigued. Looks like it might be fun.
“Tamikrest are a group of young Touareg musicians from the far north of Mali, where the parched landscape forms part of the Sahara desert. Their name means the knot, junction or coalition, a reference to the fact that the members hail from different regions, and Adagh is another name for the Touareg, who are also referred to by their language, Tamashek.”
