On June 10th a new record of Diego el Cigala will be released, recorded live at the Palau de la Música in Barcelona, with Diego del Morao on guitar. The singer has dedicated the record to Paco de Lucía.
“Vuelve el Flamenco” is the most recent work of Diego “El Cigala”, our most international singer who has transcended the frontiers of the artform with his incursions into music from the other side of the Atlantic in which he has managed to find just the right touch of flamenco and Andalusian culture left by two centuries of comings and goings between the two shores
He feels right at home and has reinvented genres like the tango or the bolero, along the way enjoying great success, tours and numerous prizes such at six Latin Grammys, four of them for best recording of these related forms.
The purest “Cigala” has returned to the nest, to his origin and is carrying the flamenco banner to offer us a daring musical adventure, a live recording at the Palau de la Música in Barcelona, accompanied by his friend, sidekick and outstanding guitarist, Diego del Morao, son of the great Moraíto Chico, favorite young player of the superhuman Paco de Lucía.
This pair of Diegos is supported by the very flamenco palmas of Juan Grande, Ané Carrasco and Tarotito, all three from Jerez, like the Moraos, and the youngest cajón player from the Extremaduran family of Porrina, Sabú Porrina.
CANTE, GUITARRA, PALMAS Y CAJÓN.
