CARMEN LEDESMA, Direct from Spain! At the 9th Annual Bay Area Flamenco Festival
PERFORMANCE FRIDAY, OCTOBER 10th 8pm
Carmen Ledesma's first ever performance in the Bay Area will celebrate the Gypsy flamenco traditions of Utrera, a small town outside of Seville known for such legends as La Fernanda & La Bernarda and El Perrate. She is joined by a group of seasoned flamenco artists including guitarist Antonio Moya and singer Mari Peña from Utrera. Ledesma's first teacher was Enrique el Cojo, one of the founders of Seville's unique style of flamenco dance. In the early years of her career, she worked with Antonio Gades at Spain's National Ballet. In 1983 she was awarded the prestigious Juana la Macarrona prize for dance at Cordoba's National Flamenco Arts Awards. She later went on to work with such greats as Mario Maya and El Farruco and toured both Spain and France with guitarist Pedro Bacán's legendary group "The Pinini Clan," where she danced alongside Concha Vargas.

Artistic Director Nina Menéndez's unique curatorial vision distinguishes the work of Bay Area Flamenco and its particular focus on grassroots flamenco from the Gypsy communities of Spain. The Festival has presented some of the most important figures in the history of flamenco as well as prodigies from today's generation of artists. Artists presented include Manuel Agujetas, Angelita Vargas, the Farruco Family, Manuela Carrasco, Miguel Funi, Juana la del Pipa, Pepe Torres, Diego del Morao, Diego el Cigala, Son de la Frontera, Jose Maya and more.
