Direct from Spain, Fall Flamenco Festival 2010: Gypsy Flamenco~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.
Dancer Pepe Torres is a polyrhythmic powerhouse whose superb footwork provided the main percussive support for the award-winning ensemble Son de la Frontera. Raised in Andalusia’s Morón de la Frontera, a hotbed of Gypsy flamenco, he has toured extensively with Martirio, Antonio Canales, Sara Baras, Manuela Carrasco, Farruquito, Juana Amaya and many others. Torres comes to Boston with his own acclaimed company for the first time, performing Homenaje, a centennial tribute to his grandfather, legendary Gypsy flamenco singer Joselero de Moron, and a celebration of his family’s unique contributions to the history of flamenco, which also includes his great-uncle, guitarist Diego del Gastor. Juan del Gastor will also appear as guest artist.
