Lakshmi "La Chimi" Basile, a remarkable ascent--which is no surprise considering her childhood and family history. Both of her parents are freelance performing artists. She grew up immersed in ethnic music and dance and it was natural for her to discover a career in flamenco. With her background in flamenco, classical, and contemporary dance Lakshmi Basile moved to Spain in 2002 from San Diego, California. Lakshmi moved to Spain at age 20 to further her flamenco studies. She was fortunate to quickly be embraced by artists there and has come to work aside great artists such as Manuel Molina, Remedios Amaya, Joselito Mendez, Antonio Moya, La Hermenia, Carmen Ledesma, Antonio Rey and La Tona. She was given the nickname La Chimi (which is simply her own name re-pronounced). In recent years, Lakshmi Basile “La Chimi” made history, being the first non-Spanish artist to win an award in the central flamenco contest, Concurso de las Minas de La Unión, in 2011. She also was granted an award in another primary contest, the Concurso Nacional de Arte Flamenco e Córdoba.
