I'm working with this Flamenco Dance Studio on their next event. Here's their latest newsletter (went out on the #4thofJuly
Dear Flamenco friends,
I want to take a moment to update you on the happenings at the Amaral Studio and wish you all a happy 4th of July weekend.
But most importantly, I also want to acknowledge how grateful I am to enjoy the gift of liberty and freedom we sometimes take
for granted in this country.
As I write this FF newsletter, it strikes me as an uncanny coincidence that the title of Roberto Amaral's new CD is in fact
"The Freedom". We are now happy to announce the official release of Roberto's new CD "THE FREEDOM"!
To order digital downloads of the entire CD or individual tracks visit: cdbaby.com
For those who prefer packaged CD disks,
they will be available through the Amaral Studio beginning Aug 1st, 2013. Visit amaralstudio.com
for information about
Roberto's CD, as well as upcoming live performances with Roberto's new 10 member Flamenco fusion ensemble "Fuego Exótico".

Throughout his career, Roberto has bravely ventured in and out of the boundaries of "conventional" Flamenco.
In his original compositions, with his trademark style and talent, he seamlessly blends together the worlds of Flamenco,
Pop, Latin, Jazz, Rock and R & B in quite a unique way. Many of you know Roberto as an incredible dancer, master teacher, choreographer
and Flamenco performing artist. But did you know he is an accomplished singer and songwriter ? Roberto was one of the co-founding
members of the groundbreaking and internationally successful band "Carmen". After 40 years, Carmen is still recognized all
over the world as being way ahead of it's time. It was the first band to ever fuse Progressive Rock with Flamenco, both musically
You can see various Carmen clips on You Tube Carmen 'Viva mi Sevilla'
and Carmen - Bulerias
In his new Flamenco fusion CD, "The Freedom", Roberto, for the first time, has compiled 15 of the many songs he's written in the
past 25 years. It is something everyone has been waiting to hear, and the Freedom CD will finally be available for sale through the
Amaral Studio beginning August 1st. It will also be available for sale in the Scherr Forum Theater lobby on the day of the upcoming
Amaral Studio Showcase, "Incendio Flamenco" on Sunday August 11th. We hope you will come to see one of the two performances
that day. As a special added attraction to the concert, Roberto will debut his new musical group "Fuego Exótico", which will perform several of his original works from the CD. And to add more excitement and impact to those songs, Roberto has staged some of them as thrilling dance production numbers. This is the kind of show Roberto has been hoping to present for many years, and definitely one you don't want to miss.
