DANCE workshop with GEMA MONEO: BULERIAS DE JEREZ at 8th Annual Bay Area Flamenco Festival
GEMA MONEO is from the legendary Moneo clan of Gypsy flamenco singers and guitarists in Jerez de la Frontera. Niece of the famed singer El Torta, she grew up in the middle of an ongoing flamenco fiesta with constant singing and dancing at home and at family gatherings. She started studying dance with cousin Manuela Carpio, and soon began to work in the peñas and tablaos of Jerez. At the age of 18 she joined Farruquito's company and has appeared with him all over Spain and at festivals including the 2010 Bienal de Flamenco in Sevilla. Last year Gema debuted in the US with Fiesta Jerez, the all-star ensemble led by Diego del Morao at Festival Flamenco Gitano USA 2012 with shows in San Francisco, Los Angeles and New York CIty. A featured performer at venues such as the prestigious El Cordobés in Barcelona and Madrid's Las Carboneras, Gema continues to perform regularly with Farruquito and with guitarist Diego del Morao among others and will be featured in the upcoming documentary "Flamencas: Mujeres, Fuerza y Duende".
