LEBRIJA: MIGUEL FUNI
The unmistakeable compás por bulerías that distinguishes Lebrija has its roots in the romance and the alboreá. Miguel Funi's dance style is unique: beautiful markings with a note of humor, compás expressed with the whole body, emphasis on the arms and the postura. Very sensual.
MORON: JUAN DEL GASTOR
Bulerías in Morón de la Frontera is indelibly marked by the guitar playing of Diego del Gastor, Juan's uncle. Improvisation and charisma characterize Juan del Gastor's down-home Gypsy style fiesta dancing. Simple llamadas and markings honed in family weddings and baptisms or in his grandmother's kitchen.
