Nov. 16: Festival Flamenco Gitano: Pepe Torres in HOMENAJE


TICKETS AVAILABLE AT THE DOOR
Box Office opens at 5pm



Widely celebrated for his extraordinary depth in the Gypsy dance tradition, PEPE TORRES is a polyrhythmic powerhouse whose superb footwork provided the main percussive support for the award-winning ensemble Son de la Frontera. Pepe is known as a sensitive dancer who exudes the essence of his heritage with unmistakable personality and strength.

He has toured extensively with Manuela Carrasco, Farruquito, Juana Amaya, and Antonio Canales, among others, and first came to Berkeley with David Serva & Miguel Funi in the late 90s. He is a favorite at flamenco festivals throughout Europe including recent performances at the Flamenco Festival de Nimes and the 2010 Festival de Jerez.

The Bay Area Flamenco Partnership is proud to present HOMENAJE, a centennial tribute to Torres' grandfather, legendary Gypsy flamenco singer Joselero de Moron. A showcase of Pepe's mastery of all aspects of flamenco music and dance, HOMENAJE is a celebration of his family's unique contributions to the history of flamenco which also includes his grand-uncle, legendary guitarist Diego del Gastor.

Guest artist, JUAN DEL GASTOR, is a family elder and direct link to Torres' Gypsy flamenco legacy.  Heir to the guitar-playing of his uncle Diego, Juan has accompanied such flamenco giants as Fernanda de Utrera, Juan Talega, and Miguel Funi. He is also a highly charismatic singer and dancer who transmits a contagious sense of flamenco aire.

All of Moron's Gypsy soul is condensed in Pepe Torres .... --El Diario de Sevilla (Spain)
