Ensemble Español’s “Flamenco Passion” concerts are now in their 40th year. The Skokie concerts feature live music, classes and lectures.

Radio M and Morning Shift host Tony Sarabia and Jorge Perez, executive director of “Flamenco Passion” also join us to talk about the history of the concerts and Spanish dance and culture.
