Fiesta Jerez

NYU Skirball Center
Flamenco puro from Jerez de la Frontera! Spontaneous, authentic and impassioned, this show feels less like a stage production and more like an invitation to a Gypsy family celebration. The 12-member multigenerational ensemble includes the powerful singer/dancer Juana la del Pipa of Gypsy Passion and Mujerez fame; guitarist Diego del Morao, son of Moraito; charismatic singer Enrique el Zambo; singer/dancer Kina Mendez; rising dance star Gema Moneo; and revered flamenco community elders, dancers Tia Curra and Tia Yoya.
