Elena Andujar, born in Sevilla began studying dance at age 10, by age 20 had graduated in Classical Spanish dance from the school of Matilde Coral and Rafael El Negro in Sevilla.

Her first professional performances began with Antonio Canales on his Japanese tour in 1990 with Ketama and after singing in Joaquín Cortés shows Cibayi (1993) and Pasión Gitana (1994) she became known as a flamenco singer.

She has performed in flamenco clubs such as La Trocha (Seville), Café de Chinitas (Madrid), Casa Patas (Madrid), Tablao de Carmen (Barcelona), Zambra (Alicante) and Suristán (Madrid). Elena made her film debut in Taylor Hackford´s The Devil´s Advocate, dancing with Al Pacino and continued in the film as a singer in Mike Figgs´documentary Flamenco Women. Her face is very familiar due to the portrait of Elena, which Richard Avedon included in his Autobiography.

Currently, she is director of her own flamenco school in Madrid, where in addition to singing and dance, classes are given in all aspects of flamenco.

She participated as a singer in the Pata Negra album, El Blues de la Frontera, and has collaborated with such artists as Romero San Juan, Arrajatabla, Diego Carrasco, Dulce Venganza, Cantores de Híspalis, Niña Pastori, and Familia Fernández. Recently Elena has broadened her cultural bases through creating with jazz in her work with Jorge Pardo-Carles Benavent Flamenco All Stars; with blues, with the Vargas Blues Band; with zarzuela in the Gala de Reyes at the Teatro Real; and as a soloist with the Metropolitan Orchestra de Utrecht (Holland) and the Kymi Sinfonietta of Helsinki (Finland). Her first solo album was recorded in Milan and Madrid with the participation of pianist Walter Tesoriere and the flamenco singer, Dieguito “El Cigala”.
