WATCH: Omar Nare Fuses Mariachi And Flamenco
This weekend a new project aims to blend art forms and genres in Fresno. The brainchild of Fresno-based multi-instrumentalist and vocalist Omar Nare, Dos Mundos mixes sounds of traditional mariachi with flamenco rhythms and dance.
The group will perform Friday in the 10th floor ballroom of The Grand 1401 in downtown Fresno with flamenco dancer Manuel Gutierrez. Omar joined us in our Bonner Performing Arts Studio for an interview and performance with violinist Patrick Contreras and guitarrón player Marisa Orduno.
