Legendary flamenco artist and rhythm devil, Carrasco is the absolute master of the compás (rhythms) of his native Jerez de la Frontera. What Israel Galvan is to flamenco dance, Carrasco is to flamenco singing. Under his leadership, a whole new generation of musicians has developed, artists with tradition in their genes who are infusing flamenco with jazz, rock and pop. The concert is dedicated to Moraito Chico, one of the finest guitarists of his generation who regularly accompanied Diego Carrasco until his death, in 2011.
An exception to the Tuesday Series, the concert will be performed on Friday, as part of the Bi Flamenco Festival.
