El Cigala's Indestructible tour in New York
This special concert introduces “Indestructible,” El Cigala’s latest album of ‘70s salsa classics reinvented with his soulful, inimitable flamenco touch.
El Cigala’s collaborations with world-renowned Latin American artists have earned him a reputation for seamlessly melding the rhythms and melodies of his Spanish Gitano heritage with styles ranging from bolero to son, tango and Afro-Caribbean jazz, to identify him as “a musical game-changer, the rare musician who single-handedly alters the direction of a genre.”
El Cigala’s latest and first salsa album, Indestrucitible, was recorded in Spain, Puerto Rico, Cuba, Colombia, the Dominican Republic, New York and Miami with a host of Cuban and salsa music legends. Released in October 2016, it is a tribute to El Cigala’s late wife Amparo, and to his mentor, the late, great Cuban pianist Bebo Valdés.
El Cigala will be joined by guest salsa artists Tito Allen, John “Dandy” Rodriguez, Jimmy Bosch, Ricky Gonzalez and Jimmy Delgado. Produced by Lehman Center and Leo Tizol.
