Flamenco dancers

Flamenco was born in 18th-century Andalucía and has become part of New Mexico’s cultural heritage and contemporary nightlife. How did this art form traverse such a distance of time and geography? Nicolasa Chávez, curator of Latino/Hispano/Spanish Colonial collections at the Museum of International Folk Art, presents “The History of Flamenco and Dance in New Mexico” at 6 p.m. Tuesday, March 26, at the New Mexico Museum of Art (107 W. Palace Ave.). Chávez is joined by guitarist Luís Campos for this event featuring live music, song, and dance, co-sponsored by El Rancho de las Golondrinas. Admission is $10. Doors open at 5:15 p.m. For more information, go to nmartmuseum.org
