Diego El Cigala 2021 U.S. Tour in New York

El Cigala, one of Spain’s most acclaimed and innovative Flamenco singers, returns to the U.S. to perform his best-known music in the recital “Piano y Voz.”

Multiple Grammy winner Diego El Cigala has been called “one of the most beautiful flamenco voices of our time” by legendary guitarist Paco de Lucia. With a sound described as “natural, inspired [and] drop-dead gorgeous” by the BBC, El Cigala seamlessly melds the rhythms and melodies of his Spanish Gitano heritage with styles ranging from bolero to tango, Afro-Caribbean jazz and Cuban son.

El Cigala began his career singing for dancers in Spain at the invitation of well-known artists such as Cristóbal Reyes and Mario Maya, then rose to international fame in 2003 after releasing Lágrimas Negras, a collaboration with venerable Cuban pianist Bebo Valdés.

He radiates a magnetic mix of winking charm and unpredictable vitriol reminiscent of a singer from an entirely different milieu, Frank Sinatra.
