Flamenco percussionist Samuel Flores comes from the gypsy flamenco family Los Flores and was raised in Arcos de la Frontera, a historic pueblo outside Jerez de la Frontera, Andalucía. Born into a legacy family of flamenco singers, dancers and musicians, Samuel began playing percussion before his feet even reached the ground sitting on the Cajon. Samuel began touring as a flamenco artist as a small child with his family, all dancers and musicians, to huge acclaim in Andalucía and throughout Spain. Samuel was for many years the percussionist for Ballet Nacional de Espana touring and performing in the best theaters all over the world. He has accompanied everyone from Antonio Canales, Merche Esmeralda and Juan Manuel Canizares to Chano Dominguez, Fernando Romero, Lola Greco, Diego Losada, Belen Lopez, Domingo Ortega, among others.
Misuda Cohen is a locally based flamenco dancer known equally for her skill as a bailaora de Flamenco and her classical training. She has scorched stages all over Los Angeles, the U.S., Europe and South America with her artistry and spent several years studying and working as a professional dancer in Spain alongside many world renowned artists.
Bailaor Manuel Gutierrez Cabello was introduced to flamenco at a very young age by his parents having him trained with the great masters of the discipline. Manuel has performed all over the world with many renowned artists and his amazing rhythms and exciting footwork are not to be missed.
