“Arcángel is a tenor with all the dark tension that characterizes the best flamenco singers, he can sing with terrific attack and excitement, and the rhythmic variety he supplies to a single long coloratura phrase is fascinating” The New York Times
ARCÁNGEL is one of the leading lights of a new generation of vocalists who is making waves internationally with his creative renditions of the classical cante jondo repertoire. This singer from Huelva (1977) creates his own world with a subtly expressive voice that is classified as unusual within flamenco. It is unwavering with an unyielding tone that is so strong and disarming, nasal and Arabic-lined that adapts beautifully to other kinds of music. His wide range of interpretative skills varies from cooperation with contemporary composers (Mauricio Sotelo) and old music ensembles (Accademia del Piacere) to projects celebrating traditional art of flamenco (Zambra 5.1). Critics unanimously praise him as the heir of the late and great flamenco singer Enrique Morente. The word ‘arcangelism’ has been mentioned to define his beautiful melodic phrasing.
