14th Annual Bay Area Flamenco Festival presents  NOCHE DE CANTE GITANO Singers: Anabel Valencia (Lebrija), David "El Galli" (Moron), Antonio Núñez "El Pulga" (Chiclana) Guitarist: Juan Campallo Percussion: Diego Amador Anabel Valencia: Mentored by the iconic singer from Lebrija, Manuel de la Paula, Anabel Valencia is steeped in the particular styles, rhythms and verses of her family and her hometown. With celebrated artists such as Miguel Funi, Pedro Bacan, Concha Vargas, Juan el Lebrijano, Inés Bacán, José Valencia, and Curro Malena, Lebrija is one of the most important wellsprings of flamenco with a great diversity of singing styles, united by a rhythmic flavor unique to the region. Anabel began singing as a child in the holiday zambomba fiestas and later, in her teens she made a hit record with Rycardo Moreno's crossover group "De Ojana Ná" (2001). By 2008 she had left pop behind and was starting to get noticed as a serious flamenco singer. That summer she made her debut as a soloist at Lebrija's Caracolá festival and soon after she was invited to collaborate with her cousin José Valencia in his concerts and in productions by artists such as Joaquín Grilo and Niño Jero. She has since been featured twice at Seville's Bienal del Arte Flamenco, most recently just this last September when she also appeared as a guest artist in the Fiesta de las Bulerias in Jerez de la Frontera. Bay Area Flamenco is proud to present Anabel Valencia in her first appearance in the U.S. David Sanchez "El Galli": Growing up in Morón de la Frontera, El Galli was exposed to great Gyspy flamenco artists, especially those of the Gastoreño family. He went on to sing in tablaos in Seville and Barcelona such as El Cordobes, Los Gallos and the Arenal. Over the years he has accompanied some of his generation's greatest flamenco dancers on international tours and at festivals all over Spain, including Juan de Juan, Antonio Canales, Farruquito,
