Ed Stephenson and the Paco Band

Ed Stephenson (music adjunct) and the Paco Band played for the 29th International Festival at the Raleigh Convention Center Sept 19-21, 2014.  The Paco Band is known for their Nuevo Flamenco Music.  Nuevo Flamenco Music is based on Flamenco Music which originated in 16th century Spain.  What Blues is to America, Flamenco is to Spain.  It is a musical outlet for the poor and oppressed. Nuevo Flamenco Music is westernized; making it a lighter and brighter form of Flamenco, but still captures the rhythms of Flamenco Music.
