“The brilliant Angelita Vargas . . . break(s) loose with the kind of heel work one rarely sees.”—New York Times
"Jairo Barrull [is] fiery . . . remarkably accomplished and . . . elegant at every moment."—Los Angeles Times
Direct from Spain, Gitano Roots of Flamenco captures all the passion, skill and excitement of Gypsy flamenco dance. Both programs will also feature an exceptional ensemble of traditional flamenco musicians, performing live on stage.
Direct from Seville, Gypsy flamenco dance icon Angelita Vargas and the young, dynamic Jairo Barrull join together for a mesmerizing night of Gypsy flamenco. Vargas swept Broadway in the 1980s with Flamenco Puro and was recently featured in a piece with the Farruco family that toured extensively to wide acclaim throughout Europe. Barrull, who is the great-grandnephew of legendary guitarist Diego del Gastor, has performed with such important figures as Concha Vargas and Juana Amaya. Gitanerías honors the passing down of flamenco traditions from generation to generation in the Gypsy community where dance is an expression of cultural identity.
