ANDALUSIAN VOICES: CARMEN LINARES, ARCÁNGEL, MARINA HEREDIA
"Tempo of Light" is an all-star show featuring some of the leading voices in Spain today, in a virtuosic display ranging from the gypsy roots of flamenco to modern innovations.
Carmen Linares, the legendary grand female voice of flamenco cante jondo (deep song), has been celebrated over the world for the extraordinary expressive power of her voice. Marina Heredia's mercurial, impassioned voice, moves between clarity and rasp, sorrow and rage, tragedy and exultation. (NY Times) while versatile singer Arcángel, a tenor with all the dark tension that characterizes the best flamenco singers, transcends flamenco borders with a rich imagination, always grasping the roots.
Under the musical direction of Isidro Muñoz, composer and producer of flamenco legends like Camarón and Enrique Morente, this special evening will include the outstanding dancer Ana Morales, former principal dancer of Ballet Flamenco de Andalucia
