You've likely read all of the written interviews here with Mercedes. You've probably seen the interview with her husband, Santiago Lara.

And now, here's that video interview with Mercedes that I've been promising you

We filmed it in Jerez last spring just after the Flamenco Tour.

In the video below Mercedes talks about the road to becoming a soloist, how she navigates motherhood and flamenco dance, her thoughts on teaching those of us who are not pros, and some other stuff.

Oh, and by the way, you'll probably love her even more after seeing this video, so get ready...

What did you think?

Have you ever studied with Mercedes?  Ever seen her perform live?  Do you have a question for her?  I'll be back in Jerez in the fall, and I'd be happy to ask her.  Leave a comment below.
