Jairo Barrull, an internationally successful gypsy flamenco dancer from Seville, Spain, has been performing since he was 7 years old. His family are the well-known ‘Los Negros de Ronda’, whose artistic legacy stems back to the 18th century. Jairo has performed with notable flamenco artists such as 'El Chocolate', Aurora Vargas, Concha Vargas, Angelita Vargas, Gabriel de la Tomasa, Juana Amaya, Farruquito, Carmen Cortes and Gerardo Núñez.
Jairo has performed all over the world including a performance when he was 13 at the Vatican for the Pope John Paul II and at the Alte Oper of Frankfurt with German juggler Francis Brunn in ‘Incognito’
‘Rarely have you seen such a stunningly fast dancer as Jairo!’
‘Jairo Barrull is the show’s take-no-prisoners young firebrand’
The Boston Globe
‘He has a keen sense of play, above all in the vivid way he crosses his feet rapidly’
The New York Times
‘An artist so remarkably accomplished and even elegant at every moment’
Los Angeles Times
To tell the story of his artistic heritage that has evolved during seven generations by way of gypsy flamenco dance forms, Jairo will be joined by first class gypsy musicians from Andalucía who also have their own gypsy flamenco legacies.
