Superstar Diego El Cigala is contemporary flamenco's most compelling voice. An electrifying singer, he has collaborated with many of the most important names in flamenco, including Mario Maya, Farruco, El Güito, Camarón, Gerardo Núñez and Vicente Amigo, and is renowned for his pioneering work in fusing flamenco with Latin American music forms such as bolero, Afro-Caribbean jazz, and tango. His collaborations with Latin jazz icons Jerry Gonzalez and Bebo Valdés are revered as breakthroughs in flamenco and Latin jazz. He received a Latin Grammy for "Lágrimas Negras," which he recorded with Cuban jazz pianist Bebo Valdés, and just received a Latin Grammy nomination for his most recent recording "Cigala & Tango." For this program, he will present the New York premiere of "Cigala & Tango"; in addition to selections from his latest CD, he will perform songs from his other acclaimed recordings.
José Maya, one of the most explosive dancers in Spain today, is a powerful figure in flamenco's new generation. He has collaborated with many of the most well-known flamenco artists including Farruquito, El Güito, Manolete, Estrella Morente, Gerardo Núñez and Diego El Cigala, and opened for pop stars Marc Anthony, Beyoncé and Björk. As a member of Grammy-winning guitarist Tomatito's sextet, he captivated audiences at the New York Flamenco Festival in 2008. Maya now returns to New York with his own company in the New York premiere of "Red," a fascinating program that explores Spanish Gypsy identity in the 21st century.
