Flamenca en Hollywood: Lola Flores

María Dolores "Lola" Flores Ruiz (21 January 1923 – 16 May 1995) was a Spanish singer, dancer, and actress. Flores was born in Jerez de la Frontera, Cadiz (Andalusia, Spain). Although thought to be only part gypsy, she strongly identified with the Spanish gypsy culture. She herself said that there was a very small remote possibility of having gypsy heritage from her grandmother, but was not certain. She became a famous dancer and singer of Andalusian folklore at a very young age, performing flamenco, copla or chotis and featured in films from 1939 to 1987. Her greatest success was in folklore shows with Manolo Caracol, who was her artistic partner.
