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.
