Bay Area Flamenco Presents:
Manuel Agujetas, Living Legend of Gypsy Flamenco

Spanish Gypsy flamenco legend Manuel Agujetas, is an outstanding, controversial singer – anarchic and unpredictable. Born in Jerez de la Frontera in 1936, Agujetas is one of the most important figures in the history of flamenco. Heir to the Spanish Gypsy tradition of singing blacksmiths, Agujetas worked in his father’s forge until 1970, when he made his first recording. He has achieved international recognition for his singing of the stunningly intense form of flamenco, cante jondo (deep song), which includes flamenco’s purest, ancient styles such as martinetes and siguiriyas. He is the father of singers Dolores Agujetas and Antonio Agujetas. He has recorded over 10 albums and appears in Carlos Saura’s film “Flamenco” and is the subject of Dominique Abel’s documentary “Agujetas, Cantaor”.

Agujetas will be joined by his wife, dancer Kanako and the superb young Gypsy guitarist Manuel Valencia of Jerez de la Frontera, a student of both maestro Manuel Morao and Gerardo Núñez and the nephew of Terremoto hijo, from whom he learned to accompany the cante.
