Flamenco ensemble, Clic-Clac: Angela Deiseach (dance), Shirley ‘la Pili’ Pincay (vocals), Amilia Cervantes (violin), and Juan D Toledo (guitar). Rooted in traditional flamenco music and dance, Clic-Clac also incorporates influences from other genres and styles. Their performance celebrates expression and storytelling through song and dance, drawing on their collective knowledge and experience of the multifaceted flamenco genre. Formed earlier this year and based in Toronto, Clic-Clac made their debut as part of the Tablao Flamenco Toronto showcase at Supermarket. The group has since been featured in the Dance Matters Into the Fire Series at Toronto’s Pia Bouman School.
