10th Annual Bay Area Flamenco Festival presents GENERATIONS OF GYPSY FLAMENCO: Gema Moneo, Pepe Torres & Concha Vargas
Celebrating the 10th Anniversary of the Bay Area Flamenco Festival/Festival Flamenco Gitano, this gala event features three extraordinary dancers from Spain, each representing a different generation, a different pueblo and a different approach to Gypsy flamenco dance: the veteran CONCHA VARGAS from Lebrija, an icon of Gypsy flamenco dance and a living legend representing the Golden Age of Flamenco; PEPE TORRES from Morón de la Frontera, a polyrhythmic powerhouse whose superb footwork provided the main percussive support for the award-winning ensemble Son de la Frontera; and rising star GEMA MONEO, a member of the renowned Moneo clan of Gypsy flamenco singers and guitarists in Jerez de la Frontera. Together, these three dancers illustrate the passing down of flamenco dance traditions as an expression cultural identity and oral history. They will be joined by a group of musicians --including guitarists El Perla & José Gálvez and singers Luis Moneo & José Valencia--, representing the continuity of the traditional forms as well as their ongoing reinvention.
