Return of a Flamenco Legend
SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 23, 2019
Venue Matthews Theatre
The grandson of legendary flamenco founder “El Farruco,” Farruquito is the modern-day repository of a tradition dedicated to preserving the art in its purest form, having performed continually with his grandfather from the time he was four until El Farruco’s death in 1997. The concept of his flamboyant solo dancing as he describes it is simple: “musicians play, I dance, everyone improvising in the moment.” The New York Times referred to his 2016 return after a long absence as “a king reclaiming his realm.”
