Diego el Cigala
World cultures, Music
Presented by Irvine Barclay Theatre & New World Flamenco Festival
Friday, March 01, 2019


A three-time Grammy winner, Diego el Cigala has captivated audiences all over the world with his gravelly voice and passionate interpretation of flamenco. Born in Madrid, Diego el Cigala has often been touted as "the Sinatra of Flamenco.” His various 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.

On stage, alone with his pianist, Cigala’s timeless voice creates an irresistible atmosphere—intimate, soulful and beguilingly seductive.

"He radiates a magnetic mix of winking charm and unpredictable vitriol reminiscent of a singer from an entirely different milieu, Frank Sinatra." — The New York Times

"Diego has one of the most beautiful flamenco voices of our time, a voice of sweetness that flows over everything." — Paco de Lucía

"Flamenco royalty...just listen to his extraordinary sobbing voice." — BBC

Part of 2018-2019 World Stages Series
