Suspiro Flamenco was founded by Liliana Ruiz inspired by her love and passion for Flamenco. Our mission is to provide our audience with authentic traditional music, classical Spanish dance, and Flamenco, as well as to share the mixture of cultures throughout different instruments. The diversity of our members’ background styles is from Latin, Cuban and African percussion, to classical music, American Jazz, Spanish culture, Flamenco, folklore and more. The musicians and artists of Suspiro Flamenco are always ready to evolve and grow in this magical artistic journey. Together, we have assembled sounds, rhythms, voices, and movements interpreting stories through music and dance. For this reason, Suspiro Flamenco has created a very particular style in its performances.
