Fernando Barros Lirola
barroslirola@gmail.com

Fernando Barros Lirola was born in Spain in 1952 and has performed in concerts and at Andalusian flamenco festivals around the world since 1980. He is a singer, composer, writer and historian who specializes in the unique cadences and rhythms that are the foundation of flamenco music. He has gained international recognition as an innovator whose voice and compositions reveal the “melody” inherent in Spanish literature and poetry. On the vanguard of integrating the traditions of flamenco with new approaches to teaching, Fernando is the author of “Flamenco en las Aulas.” He has contributed to dozens of periodicals, social media and websites. Fernando is a cultural ambassador from Andalusia, now based in Santa Fe, New Mexico. As an invited member of the International Dance Council of UNESCO, he actively promotes the preservation of dance around the world. In exemplifying the rhythms and music that give life to culture, he performs, leads workshops, participates on panel discussions, and offers master classes nationally and internationally.
