Gio reflected, “Years ago, on one of my tours as a DJ, I was welcomed for the first time at Triana, the Gypsy quarter of Seville, Spain. The birthplace of Flamenco. I immediately fell in love with the people, tastes, sounds, and vibe that resonated from every part of this small neighborhood. Walking its streets, It was as if music echoed from every wall. I understood that Flamenco is much more than music, it’s a lifestyle.”
