The Sevillian singer, guitarist, pianist, and composer, Diego Amador, will present his repertoire at Concerts a la Fundació, with a performance marked by the connection of tradition and innovation.
Fundación Bancaja presents this Friday, January 12, a new performance as part of the Concerts a la Fundació series, in collaboration with Pavasal. The flamenco artist Diego Amador, pianist, guitarist, and singer, will deliver a performance on the stage of Fundación Bancaja characterized by a repertoire that combines tradition and innovation.
As a pianist, Diego Amador is known as “The Gypsy Ray Charles” for the free and vigorous spirit he interprets the piano with. As a flamenco singer, he stands out for singing a wide range of flamenco styles or “palos.” This combination of exceptional performer and musician has led him in his career to collaborate with great flamenco stars such as Camarón de la Isla, Diego El Cigala, Tomatito, or Remedios Amaya. Additionally, he has shared the stage with authentic figures of contemporary jazz such as Chick Corea, Pat Metheny, Charlie Haden, Luis Salinas, Abraham Laboriel, and Alex Acuña, among many others. He has nine studio albums that showcase his artistic breadth. He was nominated for the Latin Grammy for “Rio de los Canastero” in 2008 and topped the Billboard Tropical Songs chart.
