Formed by award-winning flamenco artists from Seville who have each earned recognition within their own country, Jaleo has now firmly established an international reputation as a very exciting and dynamic dance company with an innovative approach.
This album, recorded live during a British tour, combines the infectious rhythms, fiery emotions and spontaneous drama of which Jaleo have become so well known with poignant moments of melancholy.
