Cita en Maestranza

  • Date: 20 and 21 May, 8 p.m.
  • Duration: 120 min
  • Hall: Main Auditorium

Free of any labels

A cantaor (Flamenco singer) in his origins, Manuel Lombo (Dos Hermanas, Sevilla, 1979) is a complete artist, with a charisma that comes across in his sensational stage presence. Lombo studied with Naranjito de Triana and José de la Tomasa -in other words, an inheritor of traditions- but he has gone beyond orthodox flamenco, proof of which is his devotion to Bambino. Lombo is a remarkable artist, an individual: a break with the past, which the new show completely confirms. Surrounded by 11 musicians in this album, there are some duos with the artists Pastora Soler, Gala Évora… they have accompanied Lombo on his Canal Sur programme (Andalusian television).

A free spirit, unequalled, sought after by the most important flamenco events, without having strictly flamenco recordings, Manuel Lombo is a musical experience in himself. Don’t typecast him. No labels. He is a special case.

The press says

La consagración del artista

Y con el poderío vocal del que hace gala hizo vibrar el patio de butacas desde que pisó el escenario.
