Juana Amaya: “For me it is a great honor to work with Juana and Remedios, both of them, because I admire them very much. In the Biennial I have worked since I was a little girl, now I was a few years old that I have not had occasion, then the “Gitanas” gives me great joy and I really want to act in the Maestranza. I started in the old way, to dance in the house, learning in the patio with my uncle Pepe Ríos and my cousin brother Ramón Barrull. Then I started working with Mario Maya, with the flamenco summit, with Chana, Joaquín, Canales … The best, and from there I went on the road trying to get rich from them. At the same time, I try to always dance with my heart and preserve the aesthetics of my time and my land, without deviating in other ways “.

Aunt Juana la del Pipa: “To come to sing at the Teatro de la Maestranza for me is a sublime thing and more with these two historical women such as Juana and Remedios. Just thinking about it motivates me and I will give my soul and my heart for Soleá, for Seguiriya, for Tientos-Tangos and of course my Bulerías de Jerez. Jerez has something special that the land gives, everyone sings and dances but with a different flavor, even the palms in Jerez are different. That something is the origin of everything, the seal that the Lord has given us. I dedicate this performance to my children, who have more children than furniture in my house. ”

Remedios Amaya: “… The cante for me means everything, it is my life, it is everything for me, I do not know how to do anything other than sing. They take away my singing and take my life. It’s not because I’m from Seville, but in my land there’s a lot of art, art is very popular and of course I’m proud to feel Sevillian … For me, singing in Maestranza means being in one of the most important theaters there in the whole world and where the artist shines. It’s an honor to act there … “
