Do you think flamenco can only be danced by someone wearing a frilly, fire-engine-red dress? Elsa Rovayo, frontwoman of Madrid's La Shica ("The Girl"), begs to differ. She performed at New York City's globalFEST in stretch leggings and a studded jacket, singing and dancing to her signature blend of flamenco and indie rock in a combination of original compositions and traditional flamenco tunes.
