A flamenco dancer in his early twenties, with shoulder-length black hair and a fierce expression, steps onto one leg, flicking the other foot up behind him. He opens his short silver jacket to reveal his slim torso in white vest. Long silky fringes run down the length of his black trousers, and his shoes have three-inch metal heels.

In a flamenco show which transcends genres, El Yiyo explores new sounds, expression without limits and a world of fantasy. Joined by a troupe of artists to accompany him, El Yiyo brings his charisma, authenticity and explosivity to create contemporary flamenco with no limits.

El Yiyo grew up in Spain’s Roma community, but it was watching Michael Jackson online, he says, that taught him to dance. Despite his youth, he has already performed as main attraction in more than 20 national and international festivals, and he has shared the stage with many of the greatest contemporary flamenco dancers.
