Potaje Gitano de Utrera

Potaje Gitano de Utrera

El Potaje Gitano de Utrera began as a meal and a little flamenco for a local church brotherhood in Utrera (Hermandad de los Gitanos).  After finishing their procession for Holy Week they planned a dinner of potaje (garbanzo  soup / stew) for the following month.   The subsequent event was enjoyed by all and quickly grew into a flamenco festival which today is one of the oldest in Spain.   Each year the festival pays tribute to a famous flamenco artist or other important figure, dedicating the event’s performances in their honor.  Recent festivals have honored Joaquin Cortés and La Pantoja, as well as the memory of Fernanda y Bernard de Utrera.
