Diego el Cigala in concert in Gijón (Teatro de la Laboral, 05/20/2011): reinventing

Has done well Diego el Cigala, reinventing its past record about the melisma bolero flamenco company in the unforgettable Bebo Valdes Lagrimas Negras then two tears, and last year with Cigala & Tango, flamenco pinching Gardel's repertoire , Cadícamo or Yupanqui. His live album, recorded a July 29, 2010 at the Grand Rex theater on Corrientes Buenos Aires, is a marvel, a meeting of two worlds, that of flamenco and tango, joined by a great artist as is the Cigala, and a bestseller that some still unexplained.

The audience applauded wildly and was thrilled with the songs that we have hurt small human tragedies that happen at night. And after a couple of concessions to cantejondo soleá and tangos, rumba, where El Cigala turned to show one of the big time.

Then, recalled his work with Bebo Valdés doing 'Unforgettable' and 'Crazy Heart', leaving for the encore 'The well pagá', paying more because they confessed publicly that he had passed a good night. He pulled the sleeve 'Dos gardenias', Antonio Machin's classic, reinvented in key Cuban jazz and familiar interspersed with verses of songs like' Thanks to life.
