Farruquito returns at the Bay Area Flamenco Festival

Back by popular demand after last March’s sold-out show, world-renowned dancer Farruquito returns to the Bay Area Flamenco Festival for another thrilling performance.

Born into Spain’s “first family of Gypsy flamenco dance,” Farruquito made his Broadway stage debut at age five alongside his grandfather, the legendary dancer Farruco. He starred in Carlos Saura’s film Flamenco at age eight, and was directing his own shows by fifteen. In the ensuing years this vibrant young artist has garnered world-wide recognition at the highest level as he continues to deepen his personal approach to flamenco, bringing his family’s dance legacy firmly into the 21st century.

Joining Farruquito are guitarist Roman Vicenti, singers Encarna Anillo, Mari Vizarraga, Antonio Villar Zúñiga and Pepe de Pura and percussionist/dancer El Polito.
