“An Evening of Music from Spain”

A special Spanish night at the Nippon Club with delicious food and passionate performances of guitar, flamenco dance, and beautiful songs.

The Nippon Club will hold an in-person Autumn music event, “An Evening of Music from Spain,” on Wednesday, November 2, at the Club Tower building for our members to enjoy food and entertainment on an autumn evening.

This year’s music event will have a Spanish theme and feature top-level performances by three musicians and dancers: Tomomi Kohno, a classical guitarist from Japan, Xianix Barrera, a flamenco dancer from New York, and Tamara Mumford, a mezzo-soprano from the Metropolitan Opera.

This will be an in-person event, so the buffet time will also serve as an opportunity for our members to socialize and get to know each other. We hope you will enjoy a delicious meal and a fantastic performance at the Club Tower building on the evening of autumn. We look forward to seeing you at the event.

Flamenco Dancer:
Xianix Barrera

Xianix Barrera is a Bessie award nominated flamenco dancer, teacher, and choreographer whose work aims to highlight bold and tenacious female artists and their unapologetically robust femininity. Female empowerment, queer themes, sexual identity and social justice color her choreographic work and create the focal point for the company she founded in 2012; Xianix Barrera Flamenco Company. With a background in ballet, modern, jazz and percussive studies, Xianix has dedicated herself to the lifelong study of flamenco with the masters of the art form in both New York and Spain. Throughout her career she has shared the stage with revered artists such as Isabel Bayón, Raquel Heredia, Rosario Toledo, Soledad Barrio (Noche Flamenca) and Juan Ogalla on some of the most important stages in the world including The Joyce Theater, Lincoln Center, The Red Theater in Abu Dhabi and Cafe Silverio in Sevilla. Continuously pushing boundaries within flamenco, while remaining true to its tradition, her most recent production, “Mujeres”, featured a rare all-female cast that solidified an ongoing creative collaboration with revered guitarist and composer Antonia Jiménez. The company embarked on its first tour in 2019 with performances in New York, Portland and Phoenix. Xianix has received ongoing recognition for her work; she was a scholarship recipient for the Flamenco Program at the School of Jacob’s Pillow, an Artist in Residence with Flamenco Vivo Carlota Santana, and a SU-CASA community arts engagement grantee. Most recently she was nominated for a Bessie Award for Outstanding Performer for her role in “Latido” as part of the Emerging Choreographer Series at LaGuardia Performing Arts Center produced by Mare Nostrum Elements.
