An Emmy-Award winning dancer, choreographer and international artistic director, Yaelisa and her special guests and friends join her in a look back on her life as daughter of the great flamenco artist Isa Mura and famed painter Irving Petlin, growing up in a world of flamenco and music - a life colored by survival, creativity and contribution. These performances express a passionate flamenco style with guest artists from Spain in a 10-member ensemble that includes maestro Jason McGuire “El Rubio" with an appearance by Guest Guitarist Keni “El Lebrijano,” famed dancer and longtime collaborator Juan Ogalla from Cádiz, incredible cantaor from Jerez Manuel de la Malena, and joined by the great Jose Cortes, Marina Elana, Fanny Ara, Melissa Cruz and Marlon Aldana.
