History of Flamenco 4
The trips to Europe become more habitual. Antonio Mairena tells 1 that Faico ( Francisco Mendoza, bailaor ) had been on tour in Russia, where the 1st World War surprised him, and he had to stay there until the war ended and could return.
Vicente Escudero appears in London and Antonia Mercé La Argentina performs in the National Theater of the Comical Opera with her group Ballets Españoles in 1929, during 2 months, presenting her show Triana. Los Chavalillos Sevillanos ( Antonio and Rosario ) were hired in 1928 for the International Fair of Leija, and in 1937 they went on tour in North America, where they stayed for 12 years, even performing for some time in the hall of the Festival of the Waldorf Astoria.
