As a teenager, she was a great discovery in the flamenco world, not only because this deaf Roma girl from the outskirts of Barcelona was learning how to dance by sensing vibrations and imitating rhythm. She became a star of Europe’s stages due to her exceptionally passionate expression. She was painted by Salvador Dali, featured in an Oscar-nominated film and then disappeared for 50 years. What happened to her? Where did the fiery rage in her movements come from? A contemporary dancer walks in the footsteps of La Singla to discover the secret of her dancing style and absence.
