With a husky, passionate lyricism honed in the cafés cantantes of Madrid, Diego El Cigala has become an international sensation — the world’s greatest living flamenco singer. His catalog includes a triumphant million-selling collaboration with Cuban pianist Bebo Valdés; more recently, the three-time GRAMMY winner and Deutsche Grammophon artist recorded Tango & Cigala, an “electrifying” tango record filled “with passion, fierceness, searing toughness, and a disarming directness” (Guardian).
Paco de Lucia described El Cigala as possessing “one of the most beautiful flamenco voices of our time, a voice of sweetness that flows over everything.” Join us at the Carolina Theatre for this rare Durham presentation of flamenco royalty.
