Lila Zellet is a woman of the lungo drom & cante jondo!
Her home is her life and her life is her art… Lila’s Romany
and Andalusian roots infuse her artistic soul as a visual artist,
dancer, singer, teacher, troupe leader, and gitana. She is a born leader….
As a performer, Lila channels duende, igniting audiences with the purity
and passion of her fire! Her search for roots and meaning creates honest
& intentional movements. Her fussion of Flamenco and Oriental dance
and music with the Romany culture it sprang from, makes her a
visionary artist…. Faithful yet fresh, Lila honors the old traditions of the
past, and, dances us into the present and future! She is a unique
and contemporary artist for our time.
