Angelita Vargas

Direct from Seville, Gypsy flamenco dance icon Angelita Vargas and the young, dynamic Jairo Barrull join together for a mesmerizing night of Gypsy flamenco.

Vargas swept Broadway in the 1980s with Flamenco Puro and was recently featured in a piece with the Farruco family that toured extensively to wide acclaim throughout Europe. Barrull, who is the great-grandnephew of legendary guitarist Diego del Gastor, has performed with such important figures as Concha Vargas and Juana Amaya. With guest artist Juan del Gastor, Gitanerías honors the passing down of flamenco traditions from generation to generation in the Gypsy community, where dance is an expression of cultural identity.
