    Carlos Caminos is a Venezuelan-American musician, composer and performer with over 25 years of experience performing as a Guitarist. A long career has taken him on a journey of very diverse projects and collaborations.

    His project, Caminos Music is the result of years developing a passion for learning: Flamenco (Bulerías, Soleá por Bulería, Alegrías, Fandangos de Huelva, among others), Latin Music (Salsa, Bolero, Son, Tangos, Cumbia, and more), Venezuelan Music (Joropo, Vals, Merengue) and Latin Jazz.

    He has lived in different countries, attaining musical experience from diverse sources. Growing up and performing in South America made Latin Music part of his musical heritage. Studying in Spain with local Flamenco Guitar teachers allowed him to dive further into this unique Guitar Culture. Living in the U.S.A. has set the stage for an interaction with great artists  working for very diverse projects that include Physical Theater, Contemporary Dance, art shows, Tango music, Reggae, Flamenco, Electronic music, and more.

    Lou Veramessa is a talented singer, songwriter, vocalist, choral director, and circle singing facilitator hailing from the Virginias. She will be adding an interactive vocal element to the evening to welcome in the summer solstice.
