Rosario ‘La Tremendita’ (Seville, 1984) grew up in Triana, the gypsy quarter of Seville, in a family abounding with flamenco singers and dancers. Her grandmother was a celebrated saeta singer, and when she was only five Rosario accompanied her father ‘El Tremendo’ at local concerts. In 2004 the young singer won the Premio Nacional Manolo Caracol for her soléa por bulería, and collaborated with dancers Belén Maya and Rocío Molina. She released her first CD A Tiempo this year in September. At this Biennial, she goes in search of flamenco’s distant roots in Persian music and Spanish folk poetry. ‘La Tremendita’ is also a talented composer and guitarist, and she will accompany herself on the guitar.
