Cigala íntimo

Concert with no interval

Say your word and break

“Say your word and break,” wrote Nietszsche, and so El Cigala sings: breaking in every part. Under the title Cigala íntimo, this internationally renowned singer comes accompanied by two of his usual musicians: the pianist Jaime Calabuch and the guitarist Antonio Rey. A follower of Camarón’s wake, Diego El Cigala reached the maturity of his voice in full effervescence of the musical journeys that took him along various musical paths. His fusion with Bebo Valdés gave him a global dimension that made him one of the most sought-after artists at the time. And although his musical versatility defines him, El Cigala has drunk from the sources of the most classic flamenco, as shown in each of his concerts.
