Who

Are We?

La Gitana Inglesa and her group of artists have become well known in the last few years as Mojacar´s leading pure authentic flamenco artists.

La Gitana Inglesa has fought hard to eliminate the low quality ¨tourist flamenco¨shows that were previously the only type of Flamenco Shows on offer around this area of Spain. La Gitana Inglesa has single handedly brought authentic and  well recognised flamenco artists from both LA CHANCA Almeria and EL SACROMONTE DE Granada to promence in this area. She has offered a shows that appeal to all types of people from experts to non experts; pure raw gypsy flamenco that wows the crowds. In every show the public see male and female dancers, superb singers, guitarists and percusionists. Every show is spontaneous and different, hence always maintaining the crowd´s interest.

Francesca Girone
Group Leader

Francesca was born in Manchester, England. Her interest in flamenco only started late in life and yet in the last few years she has achieved a high profile as a Flamenco Dancer in constant demand, and has won the respect of the Spanish Flamenco gypsy community. Indeed it was her musicians who gave her the  artistic name La Gitana Inglesa (the English Gypsy) as her style is pure raw and unstylised.

La Gitana Inglesa works with a range of different artists from both La Chanca ALmeria and El Sacromonte de Granada. What they all have in common is that they are all gypsy artists who demonstrate raw heart felt authentic passion for flamenco in their performances.

Antonio Heredia Heredia

Antonio Heredia Heredia began his professional career at the young age of 14 years old in his city of birth Granada. He is a perfect example of a traditional gypsy flamenco singer, always singing directly from his soul. He dominates all the palos of flamenco and is an excellent percussionist with his use of the flamenco clapping adding intricate rythms for us to dance to. An excellent complete artist.
