Huntingdon, Pa. -- Juniata College will host Original Quartet, who will present “Andalusia: The Origins of Flamenco” on Friday, Nov. 30 at 7:30 p.m. in the Rosenberger Auditorium, Halbritter Center for the Performing Arts. This ticketed event is open to the public.

More than 1,000 years ago, the most influential cultures of the West—the Greco-Roman, Arab, Jewish Sephardic and Indian travelers—gathered in Andalusia. There they developed flamenco, a genre of music, song and dance that often includes guitar playing and handclapping.

Consisting of four stars with four different cultures, Original Quartet explores the varied roots of flamenco music. Their repertoire includes Iraqi poems and songs, Sephardi compositions and Indian traditional pieces, as well as modern compositions created specifically for this project.
