World Music/CRASHarts PresentsFall Flamenco Festival: Pepe Torres
Please see the full events listing for upcoming events.
Dancer Pepe Torres is a polyrhythmic powerhouse whose superb footwork provided the main percussive support for the award-winning ensemble Son de la Frontera.
Raised in Andalusia's Morón de la Frontera, a hotbed of Gypsy flamenco, Torres has toured extensively with Martirio, Antonio Canales, Sara Baras, Manuela Carrasco, Farruquito, Juana Amaya, and many others. Torres comes to Boston with his own acclaimed company for the first time, performing Homenaje, a centennial tribute to his grandfather, legendary Gypsy flamenco singer Joselero de Morón, and a celebration of the unique contributions made by his family—which also includes his grand-uncle, guitarist Diego del Gastor—to the history of flamenco
