GALA FLAMENCA: New York Flamenco Festival 2017 at New York City Center / by Alejandro Mallado

This all-star event, directed by Manuel Liñan, features today’s most exciting artists, including legendary Gypsy dancer Juana Amaya, technical powerhouse Jesús Carmona, contemporary innovator Patricia Guerrero, flamenco star Olga Pericet, and singer-songwriter Rocío Márquez. Their disparate styles merge in an evening inspired by the cafés cantantes of Spain’s belle époque, when flamenco first became a public art.
