I really enjoyed the night out seeing one performance of many for The Savannah Music Festival.
Tomatito a Spanish guitarist enchanted the audience with a wonderful powerful performance. The flamenco dancer moves where lovely she truly kicked up her heels which vibrated on the wood floor.. The 2 male back up singers had powerful voices.....all gave an excellent performance.
The local crowd couldn't connect to the energy, and where puzzled by a few out bursts of the audience, that where either applauding or stood up speaking in Spanish. A few words that the performers interact with.
It was nice to be their with my friend who spoke a few languages and Spanish!! Tomatio was very relaxed on stage and Thanked the audience in his native Spanish for being able to preform in a beautiful city.
Her husband would have joined in the celebration.... with encouraging words being a Spaniard also... To bad he missed a dazzling show.....A moving high energy performance.
For the first time EVER.... at a live performance.... the crowd did not linger to bring/ encourage an encore. Encores even when performers leave the stage are customary up North. The crowd by persistence, clapping and remaining always brings on a last song. they always return.
It would have been nice to hear a final song. The predominantly SOUTHERN refined crowd was too conservative and emptied the theater quickly. The lights came on it was over...
They must bring him back next year.. The 2 guitarists where excellent as was the drummer. they all where enchanting. What a performance BRAVO!
If visiting Savannah, check the schedule and enjoy the show!!
