The flamenco singer Miguel Poveda is renowned for both his deep respect for the heritage of the music, and also his improvised approach to it.
In his first show at Sadler’s Wells since 2014, Poveda takes the audience on a tour of the traditional musical forms of flamenco, from the cantinas of Cadiz to the demanding la soleá repertoire, all the while sharing his personal connection to the music with a spontaneity that ensures a completely unique performance.
Miguel Poveda is offering us in the “Recital del cante” some of the most representative styles of flamenco, from the most festive to the deepest.
Most of the show is a reflection of the more traditional “cante” although with the contributions of the artist he gives them, conserving his essence but passing them through his personal filter. In this tour the flamenco geographies and the creations of cantaores of previous generations are shown. There are also moments for improvisation and the delivery of each concert in a unique concert. Among some of the cantes are the “la siguirilla”, “la soleá”, “los cantes mineros”, “las cantiñas”, “las bulerías”, “los tangos de Triana”… All this from a deep respect to the tradition but with a renewing and personal view that makes it different.
