Today is the 110th anniversary of Carmen Amaya’s birth. She was a Spanish-Romani flamenco dancer and widely considered as the greatest of all time.
Her rapid footwork became iconic, earning her fans across Latin America. She eventually settled in Buenos Aires and founded her own flamenco troupe. They toured everywhere from Cuba to Brazil.Google
Google honoured her with a Google Doodle, illustrated by Barcelona-based artist Genie Espinoza, and it’s gorgeous too.
