ANTONIO EL PIPA FLAMENCO ENSEMBLE from Andalucia, Spain,
is one of the most traditional flamenco groups performing today.
Born in Jerez, Antonio comes from a family dynasty of Gitano
artists, among whom are his grandmother, the legendary Tía Juana la
del Pipa (now deceased) and his aunt Juana la del Pipa, who dances
in this group and sings with a gravelly voice that feels as raw as
centuries of pain. Their 'Gypsy Passion' dance production brought Antonio
and his aunt Juana accolades from critics in the USA and Europe,
and they continue to perform around the world and to the
toughest flamenco audiences - in Spain.
