Iván Vargas on Creativity and Inspiration in Flamenco

Iván Vargas’ explosive energy and ability to convey the deep-rooted quejío, or cry, of the persecuted Roma people in dance has led him to perform and teach from the historic Sacromonte caves of Granada, Spain, to stages around the world. Vargas, a high-profile protagonist of pure flamenco, has also been invited to top international flamenco festivals, such as the Festival de Jerez in his native Spain and the Festival Flamenco Albuquerque.
