Description: Superstar Diego El Cigala is contemporary flamenco's most compelling voice. He has collaborated with many of the most important names in flamenco, and is also noted for his pioneering work in fusing flamenco with Latin American music forms such as bolero, Afro-Caribbean jazz, and tango. His collaborations with Latin jazz icons Jerry Gonzalez and Bebo Vald├ęs are revered as breakthroughs in flamenco and Latin jazz.
