Benise: The Spanish Guitar Previous Broadcasts

KQED 9: Wed, Aug 15, 2012 -- 10:30 PM

Described in concert reviews as "The Latin Riverdance," flamenco guitarist Benise's special combines soaring music, sumptuous production values, and an epic tale that will transport the audience to exotic places with video, new songs, and an ever-changing set. Armed with his instrument and an amazing world-class band of musicians, Benise pushes the boundaries of traditional Flamenco/Spanish guitar. The program integrates footage of Benise on a journey through the cobblestone streets of Old Havana, an Arabian desert, the romantic canals of Venice, the oldest bullring in Spain, a Paris cafe and a 2000-year-old sacred Buddhist temple in India. It features guest performances by American Idol finalist Kimberly Locke, vocalist Giorgia Fumanti, Dancing with the Stars couple Nick Kosovich and Lena Bacheva and the Los Angeles Gospel Choir.

    • Mon 11/03/14: Work on KQED Plus tower (DT54)

      Another station needs to do maintenance on its equipment on the tower on Monument Peak, requiring that we switch our DT54 Over the Air signal from the main antenna to the auxiliary when the work starts, then back to the main antenna at the conclusion.
