While dancers and musicians from around the world have embraced flamenco, the art form’s beating heart remains in southern Spain, where extended Gitano clans in small Andalusian cities hand the tradition down from generation to generation. Nina Menéndez, the founder and artistic director of the long-running Bay Area Flamenco Festival, created the annual event to present Spain’s greatest flamenco artists. Rather than focusing on the buzziest names headlining in Madrid, she champions Gypsy performers who embody the tradition’s dense familial ties satin ballet shoes with ribbons uk sale.
It’s no coincidence that the 14th Annual Bay Area Flamenco Festival kicks off Friday night at Herbst Theatre with the great dancer Juana Amaya and continues Saturday at Brava Theater with her daughter, 25-year-old rising dance star Nazaret Reyes. The festival concludes Sunday at La Peña Cultural Center in Berkeley with an early program showcasing the vocalists performing with Amaya and Reyes, “Noche de Canto Gitano,” and a late program focusing on instrumentalists, “Flamenco Sin Fronteras!” (the festival also presents several workshops with the artists) satin ballet shoes with ribbons uk sale.
“There are a lot of artists who haven’t come up through the families or communities,” Menéndez says. “A lot of what they do is quite wonderful with great artistry, productions that are more experimental or modern dance. But that’s not the style that Juana Amaya represents. She grew up with the Gypsy weddings and baptisms and celebrations in small towns around Morón de la Frontera.” satin ballet shoes with ribbons uk sale. Born in 1968, Amaya hails from one of Spain’s most respected Gypsy flamenco families, a clan that includes seminal guitarist Diego del Gastor and vocalist Luis Joselero. She made a memorable Bay Area appearance with the great dancer Farruquito in 2003, when Cal Performances presented their “Por Derecho” tour in Zellerbach Hall..
For Friday’s “En Mis Venas” (In My Veins) show, Amaya is working with a disparate triumvirate of vocalists, including Anabel Valencia from Lebrija (“she’s up on her feet, singing right for the dancers, in their face, very expressive,” Menéndez says), David Sanchez “El Galli” from Morón and Antonio “El Pulga” Núñez from Chiclana, making his California debut. Guitarist Juan Campallo and percussionist Diego Amador Jr., the son of the flamenco piano star, round out the ensemble satin ballet shoes with ribbons uk sale.
Rather than presenting an elaborately choreographed production, Amaya delivers “raw flamenco that really emphasizes the interaction between singers, guitarist and dancer,” she says in Spanish translated by Menéndez satin ballet shoes with ribbons uk sale. “I know audiences are hungry for the real thing. El Galli is from Morón and represents that deep singing tradition. The other singers represent other communities that are very strong flamenco towns, so the show is rooted in the diverse traditions of each of those towns.”. Amaya’s daughter Nazaret Reyes will join her mother at the Herbst, but she’s making her Bay Area debut as a headliner Feb. 2 at Brava, where she’ll be joined by the same cast of singers and players. For Amaya, “it’s the most incredible emotion, almost seeing your young self reflected but with a whole different generational perspective,” she says. “They have a different take on the dance. She’s quite petite, like a tiny perfume bottle with this amazing essence.”..
