LOS FARRUCO, First Family of Gypsy Flamenco Dance, Direct from Spain
The Bay Area Flamenco Partnership presents
The San Francisco Bay Area Festival of Flamenco Arts & Traditions featuring direct from Spain -LOS FARRUCO, first family of Gypsy flamenco dance.
This Bay Area premier features two generations of dancers representing the world-renowned Gypsy flamenco dynasty,-all direct descendants of the legendary patriarch and flamenco dance master, El Farruco.
Directed by his twenty-year-old grandson, Farruco ("El Farru") who is rapidly gaining a reputation for his fiery and virtuosic performances, the group also features the maestro's daughters -the highly respected matriarch La Farruca and La Faraona "la madre de la buleria"- as well as his second grandson, the elegantly reserved Barullo.
Accompanied by renowned guitarists Antonio Rey and El Tuto and some of Spain's most outstanding flamenco singers incuding Pedro el Granaino, Mara Rey, El Rubio de Pruna and Antonio Zuniga, Los Farruco promises a mesmerizing evening of Gypsy flamenco dance and music.
