Puente Flamenco



Lonnie Chu – vocals,   David Chu – guitar

SHELBURNE FALLS — On Columbus Day, two flamenco musicians and a dancer were entertaining the foliage crowd at Mocha Maya’s Coffeehouse.

“There were so many people in town that we had Spanish-speaking visitors, talking back and forth with the musicians,” says Chris King, co-owner of Mocha Maya’s. “There was even a woman here from Ecuador, who got up and danced with them.”  The Recorder, Greenfield, MA, November 8, 2013

The venue: Mocha Maya’s, one of the top listening rooms in the country.

The musicians: Puente Flamenco.

“Lonnie and David Chu have taken on one of the most challenging forms of music in our time, Flamenco. Flamenco arts have been a source of magic in my life for well over fifty years, and it was particularly gratifying to meet and hear these modern day practitioners of this art form. They are faithful to the traditions with Lonnie’s clear soulful singing (Cante) layered over David’s intricate guitar virtuosity (Toque). I highly recommend an evening of their musical offerings.”

Puente Flamenco offers first class Spanish entertainment, a rare treat in Upstate New York. The singing and guitar playing is sure to bring a smile to your face and your are likely to find yourself moving and tapping your feet.
