The 2023 Los Angeles International Flamenco Festival brings you the first and only GRAMMY-winning flamenco dancer and choreographer Nino de los Reyes. Nino began his career at the young age of nine in the show Campanas Flamencas, directed by Paco Sánchez, founder of the legendary Cumbre Flamenca. He has shared the stage with flamenco giants including Joaquín Grilo, Milagros Mengibar, La Tati, Antonio Reyes, Pepe Habichuela, Montse Cortes, and so many more.
Thanks to his versatility and knowledge of both music and dance, Nino has been asked to record and collaborate with some of the world’s biggest pop and jazz stars, most notably on Paul Simon’s “Stranger to Stranger” and Chick Corea and the Spanish Heart Band’s “Antidote”. You don’t want to miss this!
Joining Nino onstage: Lakshmi “La Chimi” Basile, one of the first and only foreign artists in Spain to win a highly regarded national prize in Concurso de las Minas de La Unión in 2011 as well as Concurso Nacional de Arte Flamenco de Córdoba where she earned the praise: “un desgarrador homenaje a los románticos de lo jondo” (a heart wrenching homage to the romantics of pure flamenco) – Alberto García Reyes, ABC.
“Su baile es de una alegría conquistada” (Her dance is one of conquered joy) – Félix Grande, poet and flamencologist. “La única cosa americana que tiene es su pasaporte”, (The only American thing she has is her passport) – Ángel Ojeda, former Minister of Culture of the Junta de Andalucía.
Since Nino hasn’t performed in L.A. since 2012 and this will be Lakshmi’s first time on the festival stage, I hope you will come show your support for these wonderful artists!
