What's it about?

Charisma, sensuality, passion, rhythm and elegance are their major qualities. Straight from Seville, dancer, Rebeca Ortega accompanied by live guitarist, Martín Revuelo Jr. and special guest singer Alvaro Romero bring you their fresh Flamenco; technical and direct, classical and innovative, theatrical and intimate.
“CalleJondo” is a flamenco dance show that transports you to Seville, the thrilling atmosphere of street performances and the more elegant tablaos. The name CalleJondo comes from the Spanish words “calle” (meaning of street), and “jondo” (flamenco styles the purest and the most serious).

The artists draw on a deep knowledge of flamenco traditions, their contemporary influences and a vast experience of street art.

Rebeca Ortega is a flamenco dancer notable for her knowledge of flamenco music and cante, strong sense of rhythm, expression, elegance and high level of physical and multidisciplinary abilities.
Born into an international flamenco family. Her father, Paco Benamargo, guitarist and agent at “Flamenco de Hoy” and her mother, the northamerican, Esmeralda Ortega, classical dancer; instilled in her the love for Flamenco, music and dance.
Rebeca starts her formation at the “Carmen Amaya Flamenco cultural academy” in Madrid, with her first maestra, Dolores Jiménez, with whom she acquired her first notions of Flamenco, Classical Spanish Dance and Ballet.
“…she is the imperious, dancing focal point, her steps beating furious, intricate tattoos under a long train that she swishes, lifts and manoeuvres with marvellous dexterity and no little significance…”

Martin Revuelo Jr is the son of the Sevillian guitarist Martín Chico and grandson of the famous Sevillian singer Juana la del Revuelo and Martín Revuelo.
