Irene "La Sentío"
She has had the chance to train to the dance to study with the greats: Antonio Canales, the Farruco Family, Fuensanta La Moneta, Adela Campallo... and thanks to her tenacity, strength and natural ability to transmit emotions she earned the nickname of 'La Sentío' from La Farruca.
She began her professional career in the flamenco clubs of the Andalusian capital and managed to become a finalist of the International Festival of Cante de las Minas de La Unión in 2008.
With La Farruca and Farruquito as artistic godparents, Irene participated in large-scale shows in such as the Bienal de Flamenco de Sevilla, performing there for the first time in 2010 with Sonerías- and was recognized by critics and audiences as a promising orthodox flamenca, thanks to proposals such as Baile flamenco.
Later, La Sentío premiered her show De mi faldiquera and continues her international career touring with dancers such as Farruco, Óscar de los Reyes, Sergio Aranda and Jairo Barrull, and being part of the programming of world flamenco festivals such as Mont de Marsan, the Flamenco Festival of Rome, the Bienal de Arte Flamenco de Málaga and the Flamenco Festival of Ibiza.
With the desire to immerse herself in new media, she also collaborates in more open projects with Tito Losada, the Chekara Orchestra of Tetuán, Jaco Abel or the pianist Miriam Méndez. She combines her artistic career with a role as an educator, teaching courses both in Spain and abroad in Greece, Italy, France and Canada.
In addition, La Sentío is a regular dancer at the best tablaos in Seville (El Arenal, Flamenco Dance Museum, Casa de la Memoria), Barcelona (Tablao Cordobés, Tablao de Carmen and Los Tarantos), and Madrid (Villa-Rosa, Las Carboneras, Casa Patas, Cardamomo).
