Flamenco Eñe: Kiki Morente

Albayzín

Vocalist Kiki Morente, from a renowned musical family, performs songs from his first solo album, Albayzín, an homage in many ways to his father, Enrique Morente. The name “Albayzín” refers to the historic Gypsy neighborhood of Granada, the Morente family’s home. In this intensely personal musical exploration, Kiki shows his work to be steeped in classical tradition, but also full of bold contemporary innovation – much like the city of Granada itself.

Kiki Morente: vocal
Yerai Cortés: guitar
Pedro Gabarre “Popo”: percussion and dance
Jose Fernandez Amador: keyboard and voice

This concert is part of the series Flamenco Eñe co-organized with Fundación SGAE and with the support of Ayuntamiento de Granada / Turismo de Granada.

Flamenco Eñe: Kiki Morente

The singer Kiki Morente comes from a legendary musical family. Although Albayzín is his first solo album, Kiki has spent most of his life performing, often alongside his sister Estrella Morente – and the album is in many ways an homage to their father, Enrique Morente, who ensured his son was surrounded by music from birth and always encouraged him to be free and adventurous in his art. The name Albayzín refers to the historic gypsy neighbourhood of Granada, the Morente family’s Andalusian hometown. With this concise, genuine and deeply personal musical exploration, the young Kiki Morente shows his work to be steeped in classical tradition but also full of bold contemporary innovation – much like the city of Granada itself.
