Lola Flores Life

Mara Dolores Ruiz (21 January 1923 – 16 May 1995) was a Spanish singer, dancer, and businesswoman.

Lola has been known for her vivacious presence onstage, earning her the nickname "La Faraona" since the 1950s.

She enraged several continents as a bailaora, but she kept away from flamenco canons.

Lola appeared in more than 35 films, pigeonholed in several of them, as part of Andalusian folklore, but she also interpreted rumbas and rancheras. Lola was born and raised in Jerez de la Frontera and moved to Seville in 1928.


Lola Flores Career

Life and career

Flores was the daughter of Pedro Flores Pinto (1897–1973) and Rosario Ruiz Rodr (1901–1989). Her father owned a bar and her mother was assisting with sewing clothes. With Sebastián Nuez, she learned to dance with Mara Pantoja and how to appreciate flamenco. Custodia Romero's company performed in Jerez de la Frontera on her debut at 16 years old. She rose to fame shortly after leaving Jerez for Madrid and soon signed the most lucrative deal of the time (6 million pesetas in the 1950s) that began her career, traveling around Latin America.

Antonio González el Pescalla, a gypsy guitarist from Barcelona, married her in 1958. Lolita Flores, a singer and actress, and actor Antonio Flores; rock singer, singer, and actor Antonio Flores; and actress Rosario Flores were three children. Lola Flores, although one quarter of gypsy through her maternal grandfather, Manuel, who was a street vendor, referred to herself as "paya" or non-gypsy Spanish. Nonetheless, she is still regarded as a symbol of the Gypsy and Roma people in Spain, particularly because she married into a gypsy family.

In 1995, "La Faraona" died of breast cancer at the age of 72, and she was buried in Madrid's Cementerio de la Almudena. Antonio Flores, her distraught 33-year-old son, committed suicide shortly after her death by overdosing on barbiturates and was buried alongside her.

The biopic Lola, la pelcula, was created in 2007. The film chronicles her early life, from 1931 to 1958.

Lola Flores, a native of Jerez de la Frontera (Cádiz), was a symbol of traditional Andalusian folklore, renowned both nationally and internationally. At a young age, she became a well-known dancer and singer of Andalusian folklore, performing flamenco, copla, and chotis, as well as appearing in films from 1939 to 1987.

Her father owned a bar, and her mother was a dressmaker. With Sebastián Nuez, she learned to dance with Mara Pantoja and to appreciate Flamenco history. She made her début in Jerez de la Frontera as a teenager in Custodia Romero's company. She went to Madrid after many performances.

She came to fame after leaving Jerez for Madrid and shortly after began earning her fame (6 million pesetas in the 1950s) and began her career in Latin America.

Flores, Adolfo Arenaza, set up a tribute called Zambra, which with minor changes would be maintained for many years. Zambra was pivotal in Lola Flores' career, a spectacle highly planned in all his elements for the one that they chose to León Quintero and Quiroga, but not in this case, "La Zarzamora" was one of Lola's most popular songs.

The couple's relationship, which supported each other in both personal and professional life, resulted in a more personal relationship that was more prominent than professional and also very lucrative. They then went on to become successful company owners, which led to them to become successful business owners. They produced "Embrujo" (1947) and "La nia de venta" (1951). The couple first began working together in 1951, and they soon stopped working together.

In 1951, Spanish film producer Suevia films sought to establish a Spanish cinema's star system, which had a sluggish expansion into America. Cesález, the owner, decided to hire Lola Flores at the end of 1951. He has been filming for two years and five films in exchange for six million pesetas. The film, television, theatre, and even a tour was included in the deal, which included a tour around America.

The deal was signed in Bar Chicote, Madrid, by NO-DO cameras, which was a major advertisement event. Lola Flores began filming news films under her name "La nia de la venta" with Ramón Torrado in 1951 and "Ay penita, pena" — with this agreement. In 1953, Miguel Morayta met. Lola also appeared in ad campaigns as part of the deal.

Lola Flores and her family went to Mexico on April 12, 1952, where she held a fantastic reception. She came from Mexico and spent time in Havana, Rio de Janeiro, Ecuador, Buenos Aires, and New York. It has been one of the longest running newspapers in history: "Lola Flores, a Spanish artist who was never really written about her, she neither sings nor dances, but it is a must see her." The New York Times explains the following and famous quote about her: "Ira Flores, a Spanish artist, is a newspaper published in New York City. She cannot miss her." As if it were true, this remark has been broadcast all over social media. El Pas, a Spanish newspaper, launched an investigation into the situation and found that it is part of the artist's epic past, but that it was never published in the New York Times.

Antonio González Pesca (1925–1999), a gypsy guitarist from Barcelona, married Antonio González Pesca (1958–1999) on October 27, 1958. Lolita Flores (Dolores González Flores) (1958) Antonio Flores (Antonio Gónzález Flores) and Rosario Flores (Rosario González Flores) were two of Spain's most prominent families of artists. (1961-1961) and Rosario Flores (Rosario Flores) (1963): she had three children. In addition, Lola Flores was Carmen Flores (1936), and her nephew Quique Sánchez Flores (1965) was the footballer and coach of Quique Sánchez Flores (1965). Elena Furiase and Guillermo Furiase (Lolita's children), actor Alba Flores (Antonio's daughter) and Lola Orellana and Pedro Antonio Lazaga (Rosario's children), as well as actress Elena Furiase (Rosario's daughter). Carmen Morales, the daughter of the well-known singer and actress Rocio Drcal, was the godmother of the family.

They were required to pay a bail of 145 million pesetas (871.561 euros) in March 1987. The district attorney's office lodged a lawsuit accusing the artist and her husband for failing to make the declarations of the income tax between 1982 and 1985. In 1989, the Madrid provincial court ruled she was released from a legal vacuum triggered partially by a Constitutional Court decision that had annulled partially the tax's law.

Lola Flores was finally convicted by the Supreme Court in 1991 as the perpetrators of four offences against the Inland Revenue. She was sentenced to two months in jail for a month and a day, and two others of seven months in jail, but she would not serve the sentences. Since she was a well-known individual and was chosen by Inland Revenue as an example of their fight against tax evasion, the process had a significant social transcendence.
