Carlos Montufar is CEO of non-profit Phoenix World Arts Collective and director of WorldDANCE and Café Flamenco in Phoenix. He has collaborated with groups such as Inspiracion Flamenca and Zona Flamenca, co-directed Flamenco Por La Vida and teaches Flamenco lecture demonstrations to communities in New York and North Carolina through Carlota Santana's Flamenco Vivo.
After moving to Phoenix in 2001 from El Paso, TX, his career path went from Architecture to performance after he began taking his first Flamenco lessons with Laura Moya. From there, he joined Martin Gaxiola’s CALO Flamenco and in 2007 moved to Albuquerque, NM to study with the nation’s top Flamenco repertoire company YJASTROS, under director Joaquin Encinias. In 2009, Carlos moved to Las Vegas, NV to dance in CHARO’s production of CHARO: A Musical Sensation. He moved back to Phoenix later that year, dedicating his time to Flamenco Por La Vida for the following six years. He currently produces shows and organizes workshops that bridge the Phoenix Community to world artists who reside there.
Meagan Chandler unexpectedly stumbled across Flamenco at the age of 14 and knew immediately it would be lifetime love affair. In Jerez de la Frontera, Spain, she studied dance with Ana Maria Lopez before being drawn into the world of Flamenco singing by La Chiqui de Jerez.
She has continued to cultivate herself as as cantaora from the stage in Colorado and New Mexico for more than 15 years. Meagan has toured nationally, singing Flamenco with such groups as Flamenco Vivo Carlota Santana, Maria Benitez’ Next Generation, EmiArte Flamenco, Julia Chacon’s Inspiracion Flamenca, the CBJ Flamenco ensemble, Flamenco Denver and Alice Blumenfeld’s Abrepaso Flamenco. She has extensive experience in arts education with Carlota Santana’s Project Olé based in North Carolina and teaches Flamenco rhythm, singing and party dance. She continues to explore what it means to be an American Flamenca and hold tenderly both the profound tradition and possibility of bridging between other art forms.
Jake Mossman began playing the guitar and composing at the age of twelve and drew inspiration from a wide variety of music before focusing on Classical and Flamenco guitar. Before completing a Bachelor’s degree in Classical Guitar Performance at the University of New Mexico in 1997, Jake had become immersed in the Flamenco scene created by Maria Benitez in Santa Fe, in accompanying the dance classes of Pablo Rodarte, and the classes taught by the Enciñas family in Albuquerque, and their recurring Flamenco Festivals which have turned Albuquerque into a mecca of Flamenco in the United States.
The simultaneous study of Classical & Flamenco led Jake on a lifelong search for the balance between melody and rhythm, tradition and innovation, and the fusion of two very different technical approaches. In 2000, after two trips to Spain, Jake relocated to Los Angeles, for four years, where he studied with Adam del Monte, performed Flamenco regularly and taught Flamenco at Pasadena City College. During his third visit to Spain, he met his future wife, and in 2005, they relocated to Las Cruces, NM after a long road-trip through the Southwest. Jake continues to compose and perform Classical and Flamenco Guitar, and is the owner of Las Cruces Music, LLC, which is dedicated to producing authentic Flamenco concerts in Las Cruces, NM.
The holidays are right around the corner and we can't think of a more fun way to celebrate and enjoy the holidays than with Brazilian singer/songwriter, Paula Maya. Join us for dinner, music and holiday cheer!
INSIDE WORLD MUSIC 4-22-2015
The jazzy, South American styles of Texas-based, Paula Maya, incorporates Brazilian melodies with folk, roots, electronica, and pop on Iluminar. The soft ballads and Brazilian percussion reveal an intimate side of Paula's music. It is very enjoyable and steeped in swirling melodies and rhythms of South America. Whether you are on an island, on the beaches of Rio, or in the comfort of your living room, Iluminar lights up any mood or situation with grace and authenticity. "So In Tune" showcases some great vocals here. Crystal-clear vocals and an uppity melody cements a beautiful song to her credit. The light vocals are indicative of Susan Aglukark's voicings. At any rate, Paula Maya creates a stunning release of pop-friendly songs with a good dose of South American pizzazz.

A group of wild siblings born and raised on the Western tip of Texas on the farmlands of the Rio Grande, The Iveys have been making music together since childhood. Inspired by classic rock like the Beatles and Simon & Garfunkel as well as soulful legends like Bob Dylan and Johnny Cash, The Iveys music grew into an indie folk style strengthened by stellar harmonies and infused with a signature vibe of indie honesty.
The Iveys have played over five hundred live concerts across the states, racking up a total of six national tours. They have worked with Latin Grammy Award winner Justin J. Leeah and collaborated with producer Mario Caldato Jr. (The Beastie Boys and Beck), artist Johnny Rawls, and the famed rock performers of Moderatto. The most recent record to come from The Iveys, Jenna's Song, was mixed by Fabrizio Simoncioni, and mastered by Ted Jensen at Sterling Sound in New York. With the addition of new band members, the band is currently focused on the creation of new sounds and the promise of emerging collaborations.
