WHO IS IVAN VARGAS

Ivan Vargas was born in Sacromonte, in the Cueva “La Rocio”, where he made his first steps by the hand of his family “Los Maya”, a dynasty of renowned dancers such as Manolete, Mario Maya, Juan Andres Maya and, of course, the master guitar playing of Juan Maya “Marote”.

He achieved fame among the wide audience at a very early age by participating to TV shows like “Quédate con la copla”, “Lo que yo te cante”, “Hablando se entiende la vasca”, “Quédate con la copla” or “El Trampolín”.Since then, he has taken part to a big number of shows with his uncle Juan Andres Maya, like La Pasion, Contrastes, Cautivo, El Nacimiento, or el Flamenco de un Marginado, performed for the first time at the Apolo Theatre in Madrid.

But Ivan has already gone through a long way by now. He had his debut in Madrid when he was only 8 years old, by the hand of Cristobal Reyes, in the prestigious tablao (flamenco club) “Zambra”. Since then, he has been working for several years in important tablaos– Casa Patas, Corral de la Pacheca, Café de Chinitas-..

Very relevant has been his participation to the Biennial of Seville in 1992, hosted by Miguel Bose. Years after, in 1998, he travels to Italy with Rocio Molina to attend the Festival of Bologna.

In the show “Muerte en Granada” by la Fura del Baus, he made another brilliant contribution and shared stage with artists like: Javier la Torre, Eva la Yerbabuena and, again, his uncle Juan Andrés Maya.

Of particular relevance, his intervention in homage to his uncle Mario Maya during the shows “Granada en cuerpo y alma”, part of the Flamenco Festivals where, among many others, took part Enrique Morente, Juan Andres Maya, Mariquilla or Marina Heredia and “Homenaje a Mario Maya”, with Juan Andrés Maya, Belén Maya, Diego Llori and Manuel Liñan.

Besides dancing, Ivan Vargas has given Flamenco courses in Granada, France, USA, Slovenia, Ukraine, Alburquerque and Italy.Currently, Ivan has his own flamenco dancing company and the show YO MISMO, with which he’s surprising both critics and public and receiving a wide appreciation among the flamenco world nationwide and abroad.
