Feel the diverse influences which have shaped this exuberant form of dance and music, including contributions from Gypsy, Judaic, Arabic, Spanish and Latino culture. Carlota Santana co-founded Flamenco Vivo in 1983 with the mission of using Flamenco not only as an art form but as a way to build bridges between cultures.
