Festival Flamenco Performance: Pepe Torres Presenta Jirones de Gitanería

Don't miss the opportunity to experience one of Spain's top dancers, a direct descendant of legendary guitarist Diego del Gastor and singer Joselero, Pepe Torres. In his show, Jirones de Gitanería, the baile (dance) reigns as an identity that is colored with the love that the artist holds for the guitar. He pays homage to the guitarists of his own family, the Gasteoreños, with instrumental and lyrical compositions woven throughout the show. Pepe Torres shares his vision and creation inspired by his experiences through dancing Soleas, Seguirillas, Martinetes, Tangos, and Bulerías,among other palos (musical forms). Art, duende, and those magic-filled moments that define flamenco last only for an instant. The heart is capricious, and what remains from those moments is kept in one’s memory, what remains in the eye’s retina. Jirones (shreds) are the little parts that make up the whole of Gitanería (Gypsy culture), which can be found in its customs, traditions, musical forms, and dances. Although the Real Academia Española defines the expression “Gitanería” negatively, the word “Gitanería” encompasses a cult.
