Diego el Cigala: 15 Years of Lágrimas Negras

El Cigala, one of Spain’s most acclaimed and innovative Flamenco singers, performs at the Fillmore Miami Beach.

Diego el Cigala is one of Spain’s most brilliant and innovative Flamenco singers. There have been many key experiences that placed him on his artistic path, but in the year 2000 he experienced an epiphany, manifested in the unexpected appearance of a man and an instrument that would revolutionize his musical approach. The man was the late Cuban maestro Bebo Valdés, and his instrument, the piano. This inspired Cigala to transcend Flamenco and the usual guitar that always accompanied him to explore other worlds. The innovative Spanish Gypsy Flamenco singer rose to international fame in 2003 after the release of Lágrimas Negras in collaboration with Bebo Valdés.

After his death, Bebo Valdés would be succeeded by his son Chucho Valdés. Then, in 2005, El Cigala met Jaime Calabuch “Jumitus,” a gypsy master pianist from Catalonia. This partnership led to this new intimate show that Diego presents in Miami.
