Three-time Grammy winner Diego El Cigala has been called “one of the most beautiful flamenco voices of our time,” by legendary guitarist Paco de Lucia. With a sound described as “natural, inspired [and] drop dead gorgeous” by the BBC, El Cigala seamlessly melds the intoxicating rhythms and melodies of his Spanish Gitano heritage with styles ranging from bolero to tango, Afro-Caribbean jazz and Cuban son.

"He radiates a magnetic mix of winking charm and unpredictable vitriol reminiscent of a singer from an entirely different milieu, Frank Sinatra."
