Qasida, the Dutch Flamenco Biennial’s production featuring singer Rosario la Tremendita & Mohammad Motamedi will perform 10 of March 2016 in Bozar in Brussel, and will tour the United States.
Qasida is an extraordinary musical encounter between Mohammad Motamedi and and the young Sevillian cantaora Rosario Latremendita
