Sergio de Lope and his ensemble are part of the new generation of creative Flamenco artists building bridges between Flamenco and jazz.

Defined as “the flag bearer for young flamenco singers,” Spanish artist María Terremoto presents her first album following a career full of glowing reviews. María Terremoto comes from the Terremoto legacy, from Jerez de la Frontera: granddaughter of Fernando Fernández Monje, “Terremoto of Jerez” and daughter of singer Fernando “Terremoto” Fernández Pantoja. She was the youngest artist to ever receive the Giraldillo Award for New Artist at the Seville Flamenco Biennial. She just released her first album, La huella de mi sentío, in which she presents the cantes (songs) that have been with her since childhood.

Miguel Ángel Cortés was born in Granada. He comes from a family of Flamenco guitar players. With Sonantas en tres movimientos, Cortés combines classical music, traditional Flamenco and innovative sounds. The first movement includes compositions of José M. Gallardo with an emphasis on classical music. The second is dedicated to master guitarist Sabicas. In the third part, Cortés pays tribute to the period linked to the legendary Enrique Morente’s Omega project. Dani Bonilla (vocals and percussion) and Lucía Álvarez “La Piñona” (dance) appear as guest artists.

Her career is represented by the education that she received from her mother, Concha Baras, the teacher who had the strongest influence on her professional path.
