7th Annual Bay Area Flamenco Festival September 24-30, 2012 – Featured Event – ¡Fiesta Jerez! Gypsy Flamenco All-Stars

Thursday, September 27, 7pm

Palace of Fine Arts, San Francisco

A return to the roots, joy and soul of flamenco, this concert, intimate, immediate, impassioned, feels less like a stage production and more like an invitation to a Gypsy family celebration in Andalucia. From the heart of Andalusia’s wine country, this brilliant 12-member ensemble of musicians and dancers represents several of the most important Gypsy flamenco dynasties of Jerez including the Moneos, the Moraos, the Mendez, the Pipas, the Sotos, and the Zambos. Artists include Juana la del Pipa, Diego del Morao,Enrique el Zambo,  Luis Moneo, Kina Mendez, and Gema Moneo, a rising star in flamenco. 

“These artists are bringing the Gitano essence of flamenco into the 21st century,” explains Festival director Nina Menendez. “They have an ease for improvisation that comes from living the art as part of everyday life. No choreography is required, only an intimate connection among the dancers and musicians who interact freely on the basis of a shared legacy and an insatiable hunger to find the spark of duende that transforms the mundane into the sublime.”

“Juana la del Pipa sings out with marvelously deep-throated resonance” -New York Times
