Carmen Amaya was born in Barcelona in 1913 and died on the 19th November 1963. She was a gypsy dancer who was to become one of the most outstanding “bailaoras” (female flamenco dancers) of the twentieth century; she was also one of the most imitated.

She eventually married Juan Antonio Agüero, a guitarist from Santander who cleaned up her financial and family problems, and took over the reigns of her career for the rest of her life.
