When Dutch flamenco guitarist Teye first met his future
artistic partner and wife Belén in her native Sevilla, so mesmerized
was he by her fiery spirit that he didn’t even notice she was
beautiful—or so he declares. Over a decade later, evenings with
Teye & Belén begin with Teye teasing out exotic, tantalizing
tones on his guitar, catalyzing the night’s mood with his opening
strum. Belén sits on the cajón (wooden box drum) sparingly
tapping rhythms to accent the guitar’s melody, smoldering in her
relative repose. Then she rises, flawlessly executing staccato footwork
and spinning patterns, with dramatic poses punctuating her sinuous turns.
Blazing incandescent with intensity and beauty, she sings, drawing you
into the world of Teye & Belén.
