Gripping Spanish flamenco singer Diego El Cigala is an innovator and multi-GRAMMY winner. He performs a rich mix of flamenco, boleros and tangos with his elegant and fiery band.

With a voice the late guitar icon Paco de Lucía called “one of the most beautiful flamenco voices of our time,” innovative Spanish Gypsy flamenco singer Diego El Cigala returns with an intimate voice-and-piano duet performance titled "An Evening with Cigala" focused on the many highlights from across his amazing career.

Cigala rose to international fame in 2003 after the release of Lagrimas Negras, his smashing collaboration with the venerable Cuban pianist Bebo Valdés, winning a Latin GRAMMY and inspiring The New York Times critic Ben Ratliff to anoint it best album of the year, hailing it as “one of the great new cross-pollinating documents of Latin music.”

Born in an artistic Romani family in Madrid, El Cigala is a gripping “blood-and-iron” flamenco singer, as Ratliff calls him, with a natural gift for merging his ancestral music with the boleros, tangos and rumbas of other Iberian and Latin American cultures. He won another Latin GRAMMY in 2005 for Picasso en Mis Ojos, which featured de Lucía and the prized Latin-jazz trumpeter and percussionist Jerry Gonzalez. Now, following his celebrated blending of salsa and flamenco on 2016’s Sony Music release Indestructible, Cigala takes a look back at his monumental career in the most direct setting possible, putting the soul of flamenco front and center, unadorned and steeped in duende — that most Spanish expression of passion and longing.
