Venue: At Home
Start Time: 6:00pm

Flor de Nopal writes serious and often sad songs that make you want to dance. The electronic musician, Bea Velazquez, draws on deep familial ties to the desert, a traditional musical upbringing, and discovery of identity to produce music that could only come from this time and place but often defies expectations.

-Andrew Brown, AZPM

As a project, Flor de Nopal unites a lifetime of music. From classical cello lessons, to choir, to a childhood home full of opera, Bea’s classical music roots started in infancy. They’re explorations of electronica and dance music dawned later in life as a way of rejecting formality and beginning to explore driving, visceral, and sometimes dark sounds. From Aphex Twin, to Bone Thugs n Harmony, to Prayers, to Dvořák, they’re musical influences are a kaleidoscope of old and new, classic and unexpected.

Join us as Flor de Nopal transforms Centennial Hall into a moody electronic dance club, complete with projections, strobe lights, and some serious bass drops. It was a treat to both create and step into Flor de Nopal’s world of sound and light.

You can view the video on YouTube or Facebook. Tune in May 5th at 6pm for the premiere because it’s so much more fun if we watch together. Don’t forget to subscribe and ring the bell to be notified when the video drops.
