Great Figures of Flamenco

That Seville is the birthplace of Flamenco is an undeniable fact. Because of this, the city has given birth to some of the greatest figures in the history of Flamenco. Even to this day Seville plays host to great Tablaos where you can enjoy an unforgetable night of great Flamenco.

In today´s article, we review some of the greatest singers, dancers and musicians in all of Flamenco, originating from Seville:

  • Antonio Carrión: Son of the singer ´Carrión de Mairena´ this Seville born legend has flamenco in his blood. He began his career at 13 when he recorded his first song, and has since toured all over Europe combining traditional elements of Flamenco with his more modern, innovative style.
  • Antonio ´sandpit´: Native to the Triana district of Sevill, ´sandpit´ got his name from his original profession, hauling sand by the Guadalquivir river. His signature moves are the ´soleá,´ the ´seguria´and the ´martinete.´
  • Aurora Vargas: Hailing from the Macarena district of Seville, this artist is adept at both the singing and the dancing aspects of Flamenco. Specialising in the Tango and the Bulerías, she played a role in the movie ´Flamenco´by Carlos Saura.

Thanks to these great figures in Flamenco, even today, one of the greatest tourist attractions in Spain is to enjoy a flamenco show in Seville.
