FARRUCO FAMILY: EL CARPETA & LA FARRUCA
The U.S. debut of the 14-year-old prodigy El Carpeta, and return of matriarch La Farruca, both of the legendary Los Farruco dynasty, the first family of Gypsy flamenco dance.
As La Farruca is acclaimed for her elegance, her son El Carpeta is becoming known as the most extraordinary flamenco dancer of his generation and torchbearer for the family legacy. The youngest brother of Farruquito, he's been teaching master classes since the age of six!
"Only Carpeta's astonishing dancing manages to upstage everything which has taken place during the course of the nearly two hours of the show." -deflamenco.com
"And you feel in La Farruca the accumulated wisdom of decades, the calm mastery that holds an audience in thrall and never lets it go."
