Cita en Maestranza
June, 7 p.m.
- Duration: 150 min
- Hall: Main Auditorium
Flamenco. Painting. Literature. Art. Together in a global visión. Born in Huelva (Andalusia), Argentina expands the boundaries of flamenco in works like La vida del artista, an album full of surprises with the input of poet Benjamín Prado, arranger Joan Albert Amargós and jazz pianist Julio Resende.
Argentina possesses a compelling voice and with an emotional stage presence to match, the enthusiasm of her audience reaches unexpected heights. A woman of artistic ambition. Fearless. Argentina, who was nominated for a Grammy Latino in 2013 and 2015, presents her most personal project. From the cantes to the trilla al fado. From a nana por soleá to a guajira. All within flamenco tradition. And yet, it sounds different, original. Performed from a new perspective, this cantaora has enthused orchestra conductors such as Gustavo Dudamel.
Accompanied by a group of wonderful musicians who understand the artist simply by looking at her, Argentina invites the audience at large to cross the frontiers of flamenco.
