|Born in Madrid in a family of gypsy musicians and intellectuals, Diego el Cigala began very early on flamenco tablaos. At 12 years of age he had already won awards and his amazing rhythmic ability caught the attention of Carmen and Joaquín Cortés which took him around international tours.|
From the acclaimed Undebel (1998), ‘El Cigala’ enchants the world of flamenco thanks to albums such as Lágrimas Negras with the Cuban pianist Bebo Valdés, an album that earned him one of his two Grammys. He collaborated with masters like guitarist Vicente Amigo among many others who join him with their improved and full of soul singing. He has gained the title of heir of the great Camarón de la Isla.
