Triana, Pure and Pure

View on the Pragda STREAM site

As early as in the 15th century, the Roma settled in Seville’s district of Triana. In their poor courtyards and craftsmen’s workshops, the purest and wildest Andalusian flamenco was born. The gypsies of Triana were expelled from their neighborhood in the ‘50s, destroying the local communities. On the 20th anniversary of the expulsion, the Roma organized a big farewell concert with the greatest flamenco masters from Triana performing on stage.

This joyful film memorializes the end of an indomitable lineage in a unique flamenco soiree, transformed into a tribute to a disappeared world.
