Roma Women – A Struggle For Social Justice

April 22, 2017 - 1:51 pm

The Romany are a minority group who’ve been persecuted for centuries throughout Europe. In the US, our exposure to the Roma is often through their art of flamenco music and dance. Belen Maya is a professional Flamenco Dancer from Spain. She comes from a family of flamenco dancers, and Roma blood.  Maya shares how she and other Roma women are challenging the traditional values toward Roma women with 91-3’s Yuko Kodama.

Professional Spanish Flamenco Dancer, Belen Maya will be at the dance room at the Mercer Island Community Center on April 22nd at 6:30 pm tomorrow performing “Romnia”, flamenco expression of the Roma Women’s experience.
