The evening of June 4th at the patio of the Centro Andaluz de Arte Contemporáneo in Sevilla,the much-awaited tribute to Ray Heredia, one of the visionaries of new flamenco, took place. The musician's one and only recording,  ‘Quien no corre vuela’, released by Nuevos Medios, has become one of the great references of avant-garde flamenco.

A varied program of artists participated with uneven results, in the much-deserved though belated tribute.  The occasion gave us the opportunity to remember that new flamenco was at its best moment just 25 years ago, and has left in its wake a legacy that will go on and on.
Ray's spirit was present throughout the night. Members of Ketama and Barbería del Sur, opened the evening, leading to a wealth of performances by Las Negris Heredia, Agustín Carbonell ‘El Bola’, Tomatito with his son José Fernández, Lin Cortés, la Negra and Panky, Junior, la Flaka, Alba Molina, O'funk'illo, el Carpeta, Diego Carrasco with Alfredo Lagos and el Bandolero who had a constant presence throughout the show, in addition to Joselito Acedo, Jorge Pardo and Paquete. They were followed by María Toledo, Soleá Morente, and the tempestuous Estrella Morente with Pepe Luís Carmona, Juan José Amador with Bobote, Pastora Galván and Farru. Lya, Aurora Losada and el Bicho also participated in the tribute, as did Ray's daughter, Triana Heredia with her mother María, Soléa and Estrella Morente opened a long final fiesta with moving performances by members of Ray's family with continuous unexpected improvisations.
