Las Migas brings a fascinating blend of flamenco and Mediterranean music to Kent’s Spotlight Series on Friday, Oct. 27. The show is at 7:30 p.m. at Kent Lutheran Church, 336 Second Ave. S.

Las Migas is a Barcelona-based, all-female quartet that combines classic and contemporary rhythms, and melodies that range from powerful to passionate to playful. The four women of Las Migas come from four cities that span not only the geography of Spain but also its cultural diversity—Barcelona, Sevilla, Cordoba and Lerida.

Two guitarists, one violinist and a vocalist bring one common passion to the stage: Flamenco. Their music is luminous, exquisite and heartfelt and their powerful stage presence reflects a richness that enhances the impact of the music.

The group’s new CD “Vente Conmigo” has been nominated for a 2017 Latin Grammy for Best Flamenco Recording of the year.

Tickets are $25 for adults, $22 for seniors and $15 for youth and are available online at kentarts.com, by calling 253-856-5051 or in person at the Kent Commons, 525 Fourth Ave. N. Hours for phone and in-person sales are Monday through Friday from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Saturday from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. Box office is closed on Sunday.

Spotlight Series is presented by the Kent Arts Commission and Kent Parks, Recreation and Community Services, and partially funded by 4Culture, WESTAF, National Endowment for the Arts, Washington State Arts Commission and a variety of business and individual sponsors. Las Migas is sponsored by Judy Woods, and Pete and Pat Curran through the Kent Parks Foundation.
