WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Taking one back to the heart of flamenco puro, this mesmerizing program features four extraordinary dancers representing several generations and styles from four different towns in Andalusia (Granada, Lebrija, Moron de la Frontera, and Jerez de la Frontera): the veteran Manolete, a true maestro of the baile who has trained a generation of dancers including Joaquin Cortes, Canales, Eva la Yerbabuena, and Sara Baras; Concha Vargas, an icon of Gypsy flamenco dance, who is a living legend representing the Golden Age of Flamenco; Pepe Torres, a polyrhythmic powerhouse whose superb footwork provided the main percussive support for the award-winning ensemble Son de la Frontera; and rising star Gema Moneo, a member of the renowned Moneo clan of Gypsy flamenco singers and guitarists in Jerez de la Frontera, who has performed with Farruquito's company and Diego del Morao.
