We are honored to present special guest artist from Jerez, Spain, amazing gypsy singer Kina Mendez, born into the Mendez clan of Gypsy artists of Jerez de la Frontera. Steeped in the flamenco tradition, she began singing under the influence of her aunt, legendary singer La Paquera de Jerez. Her professional career began in the famous Tablao of Seville “Los Gallos” when she joined Manuel Morao’s company which led her to work with Mario Maya and tour internationally with Salvador Tavora’s productions ‘Carmen’ and ‘Carmina Burana’. She has shared the stage with many renown flamenco artists including Manuel Agujetas, El Grilo and La Macanita.
Her explosive, expressive presence on stage and her dynamic vocal range has made her a sought after performer in both Spain and the U.S.
