Carmen Ledesma

Carmen Ledesma Machito was born in Seville in 1956 and she trained as a Flamenco dancer with Enrique el Cojo no less. In 1983 at the Cordoba National Competition, she won the Juana La Macarrona prize and since then has worked with numerous artists such as Antonio Gades and El Lebrijano. She also took part in the “El Clan de los Pinini” show, which was led by the late Pedro Bacán. In recent times her solo career is still on the rise, which means that she is one of the artists appearing regularly on the festival circuit.
