Five Things You Need to Know Today: Feb. 16
It's finally the weekend, and it's a long one for many of us. Here's some things you ought to know.
1. Artist Exposure brings world-renowned Grammy award winner Romero to Memorial Hall, Plymouth, Sunday, Feb. 17 at 2 p.m. Romero brings his musical messages to a wider audience by cleverly blending stellar world rhythms with inventive woodwinds, strings, percussion, and vocals. Romero, who is a native of Argentina but was raised in southern Spain, has unified classical, flamenco, Middle Eastern and several world beat rhythms. See Romero’s improvisational twists and eloquent string virtuosity. He will perform with Carmen Estevez (cajon & vocals), Sean Kupisz (cajon & bass), also featuring special guests: Kestutis Vaiginis (sax & flute) and Flameco dancer.
