With a family tree steeped in cante jondo, this Seville native has started a musical revolution in flamenco, raising the piano to prominence in a world where guitar is king. Thanks to his extraordinary improvisational sense and brilliant orchestrations, he has managed to reinvent the genre by incorporating the dreamy sensibilities of jazz. For Interacción Dorantes joins forces with the modern flamenco dancer Ursula Lopez and the drummer Javi Ruibal.
