Raul Mannola and Aylin Bayaz have created an emotional and captivating show that should not be missed. The intimate stage (at the Hudson) does a pretty good job of creating an atmosphere of a Spanish "tablao flamenco."

It was simply incredible! The dancer was an absolute artist, skilled, charismatic, beautiful and dynamic. The guitar player was masterful, relaxed, and alternating between, featuring his playing, when the dancer was off stage, and perfectly complimenting her, in synch with her, both leading her and following her, when she dramatically appeared on stage, for each piece.

Aylin Bayaz danced the flamenco with poetic grandeur. At times she reminded me of a whirling dervish. She would spin and twirl her body, forcing the fabric of her dress or a scarf to rise up and twist, make mesmerizing shapes. Her twirling was lit up like a fire under the bright rose gold stage lights. Her hands and fingers would punctuate the end of a twirl with a twisting curlicue motion, as if they were blowing in an Andalusian wind. Raul Mannola -- wow! He is amazing. Love! I know how to strum a guitar and make a few chords. This guy's playing is just mind boggling! I kept wondering how can remember so many notes, such intricate fingering.
