With his ground-shakingly powerful voice and magnetic stage presence, Miguel Poveda is one of flamenco’s most popular vocalists. For this special one-off concert, he is joined on stage by a live band and a dancer, for an evening of music that mixes both the traditional and the popular flamenco sounds. Most of the repertoire is a reflection of the most traditional cante, but with contributions added by the artist, as he preserves its essence while also shaping it through his own personal style. Along the way, he journeys to different flamenco places on the map, and visits the creations of cantaores from previous generations. All of it, with the utmost respect for tradition, but with a fresh, personal air that makes it unique.
Considered a genius in his native Spain, superstar Miguel Poveda’s nuanced and soulful voice has no equal in the world of flamenco. He possesses a strong technique and a charming presence on stage that he exploits to make each of his concerts a unique musical event, singing like no-one you will have heard before (Graham Watts).
Poveda takes the audience on a tour of the traditional musical forms of flamenco, from the more cheerful malagueñas and alegrías to the more sorrowful seguirillas and soleás, all the while sharing his personal connection to the music with a spontaneity that ensures a completely exceptional performance. He will be accompanied on stage by five great artists: Jesús Guerrero at the guitar, ‘El Londro’ at voice and palmas, Paquito González at percussion, as well as Gypsy dancer Antonio Molina “El Choro.”
