" The flamenco legacy of Carmen Amaya continues to be relevant. A way of dancing that depends on rhythm and strength, intensity and power. A form of expression that was a break from the gentle sweetness that had characterized flamenco dance until that point. Soon writers and journalists were making use of breathy words such as “passion”, “fury” and “fire” to describe flamenco. It was an image Hollywood was quick to capitalize on, and Carmen Amaya personified that popular fantasy. Producer Sol Hurok advertised Carmen as the “human Vesuvius”, and flamenco came to represent the essence of Spain for the entire world."
