This engaging program features Antonia Jiménez, one of the most important names among Spanish female guitarists and composers, and Inma La Carbonera, a soulful vocalist from Seville in a rare New York appearance. Jiménez, born in El Puerto de Santa María, Cádiz, studied with masters Manolo Sanlúcar, Gerardo Núñez and Rafael Riqueni and appeared with vocalist Carmen Linares, and dancers Belén Maya, Manuel Liñán and Rocío Molina, among others. La Carbonera has worked alongside such leading flamenco artists as Antonio Canales, Manuela Carrasco and Olga Pericet and collaborated with the Andanzas Dance Company.
In their concert, A Gaya, Jiménez has musicalized verses from Lorca and various female Spanish poets that had never been sung before in flamenco. Their performance refers to the strength of women and the importance of Mother Earth.
