Jesús Bienvenido: Bolero by Candlelight
February 14, 2021 @ 9:00 PM CST$15 – $50
“Bolero by Candlelight” is an evening made for lovers that lends Spanish romanticism to America’s Valentine’s Day. Slip into something comfortable, pour a glass of wine, light a few candles, and snuggle up to a selection of songs that will transport you and your loved one to a dimly lit cafe on the Southwestern coast of Spain.
Born in Cadiz, Spain, Jesús Bienvenido is a celebrated Carnival performer, composer, and singer-songwriter who embodies the region’s romantic musical heritage. He has written songs for many of Spain’s biggest stars including Antonio Banderas, Pasion Vega, India Martinez, Manuel Carrasco, and David de Maria. His socially conscious repertoire addresses themes ranging from politics and immigration to domestic violence and human rights. Jesús is the recipient of three Candela y Espino Prizes awarded by Amnesty International.
