About Flamenco Latino
Flamenco Latino was founded in 1979 by dancer and singer Aurora Reyes and guitarist Basilio Georges.
The Company specializes in Ida y Vuelta. This so-called “round-trip” style of Flamenco is influenced by Latin American dances such as the Cuban Habanera and Rumba. It evolved in the 18th century as the outposts of the Spanish Empire influenced the Spanish homeland. Flamenco Tangos, Tanguillo, and Rumba are elements of the Ida y Vuelta style.
