Award-winning flutist and bansuri player, Lara Wong and flamenco guitarist, Melón Jiménez, make flamenco their universal musical language to traverse musical territories. Their music ebbs and flows with elegance and emotive power, as they fuse the soul of flamenco with the inventive spirit of jazz and the rhythmic improvisations of Indian music.  
 
After two years of composing, performing and touring together, Lara and Melon finally present their first album and their new show, Confluencias at the NAC. In a dynamic and constant dialogue between cultures, Confluencias takes audiences on a musical journey of dynamic compositions and vivid improvisation. Dazzling flamenco guitar riffs, sophisticated electronic sound passages, mystical bansuri melodies, and colorful flute improvisations come together in this truly singular musical voyage. 
 
They will be accompanied by Eric Breton on percussion.
