The Wounded Singing of Marina Heredia

Marina Heredia’s singing, like Miguel Hernández’s poetry, is traversed by three wounds: that of love, that of death and that of life. The singer –from the Albayzin neighbourhood in Granada– perfectly understands what the centuries-old dialectic singing/life of the Andalusian people is through the wrinkles of her quejío. Marina is in herself an anthology of the best female voices of the Nasrid kingdom: she has something that sums up Gazpacha, Tía Marina Habichuela, her grandmother La Rochina or Carmelilla del Monte. She contains the essences of those sounds from the Sacromonte hill, filtered by the robust solidity of the metal that she assimilated from the cradle: that sweet breaking of registers in the voice of her father, Jaime “El Parrón”. Tireless creator, great lady of current Flamenco singing, Marina is one of the best things that has happened to flamenco in Granada in the last century.
