THE ORIGIN OF OUR TABLAO FLAMENCO IN SEVILLE

The master Curro Vélez, founder of the Tablao Flamenco El Arenal.

Curro Vélez was born in 1934 in Triana, birthplace of famous bullfighters and stars of flamenco singing and dancing.

Curro V√©lez, “pure race on all four sides”, grew up among the greats of flamenco. He was attracted by this art and when he earned his first pesetas (old Spanish coin), he invested them in dance lessons with the famous flamenco master from Seville: Enrique “El Cojo”.

At the age of 15 he appeared for the first time in public at the Hotel Cristina, which at that time had the most famous flamenco tablao in Seville. Under the skilled direction of “EL COJO” and helped by the intuition of his own race, Curro V√©lez was developing his art to become one of the most promising values of flamenco.

 

Shortly after his debut he became part of the ballet of Pilar López, as a partner.

Then he left to America where he acted as the first dancer in the ensembles of Carmen Amaya, Antonio, Sabicas and José Greco.

 

Back in Spain, Manolo Caracol, one of the greatest flamenco artists of this century, presented him in his famous tablao “Los Canasteros”, in Madrid.

In 1964, together with Manuela Vargas, he appeared at the World Exhibition in New York and at the Paris Festival.

 

In 1966, he toured with Luisa Ortega and Arturo Pavón as a solo dancer, at the end of which he decided to become independent.

 

Curro showed his talent for flamenco dance, directing and presenting the most complicated and innovative choreographies.

 

CWith his show “Fiesta Gitana” he performed in Paris, at the Theatre des Champs-Elys√©es, for two consecutive seasons and then toured Holland and Belgium. Also he performed triumphantly in Rome as one of the leading figures of flamenco for his brilliant technique and his magnificent rhythmic expression.
