About Miguel Poveda: In Concert
Considered a genius in his native Spain, Catalan singer Miguel Poveda’srounded and nuanced voice has no equal in the world of flamenco. With great sensitivity and respect for tradition, Poveda combines the classical canon of the old ‘cante jondo’ - meaning 'deep song' in Spanish - with a large dose of originality and creativity, resulting in a totally unique approach to the genre.
"The intensity of Poveda's singing draws you in, even without a knowledge of Spanish"
For this performance, Poveda is accompanied by the dancer La Lupi, who demonstrates the percussive techniques through her hands, feet, and body in a way that honours tradition while always seeking innovation.
