ASHEVILLE MULTICULTURAL, OR LATINO? SHAKERS & MAKERS I
What up my peeps?! I hope you are enjoying this awesome summer.
Today, I like to start this vlog by sharing with y’all, that I’m proud of my Latino roots, our food, traditions, mix of cultures, so many things and our MUSIC!
Latinos are often described as happy, passionate, and family oriented people. We are! Music and dance are a key component of our identity, and the result of our mixed backgrounds.
Yes, Latinos are multicultural, you see, we have Indigenous, European, African, Arab, and Asian blood in most of our DNA, and this my friends, has a clear impact on our food, music, and language.
I hope what you are about to see here, triggers your desire to explore a culture that is rich and is having an impact on our local night scene. I believe latinos are making Asheville vibrant, eclectic and in some cases WE ARE MAKING YOU DANCE!

PAOLA TINOCO. (VENEZUELA)
Flamenco Dancer/ Instructor.
I love Flamenco because it is a raw passion, and it is the best art form to express myself.
I would love to connect with more people seeking to extend their knowledge of Flamenco, or those who are interested in learning.
