His 2018 work with Universal Music, Al este del cante, has earned him numerous awards and excellent reviews. In this performance at La Caña Flamenca, you will be able to enjoy this album and his rounded and soulful singing.
Arcángel began singing in 1987, but it was not until 1998 that he began to see his artistic worth recognised, first in the El Monte cycle and later in the X Bienal de Flamenco de Sevilla. Since then, Arcángel has been singing to dance with figures such as Javier Barón and Eva Yerbabuena, or collaborating with the guitarist Vicente Amigo. With the Giraldillo prize for the best cante performer in 2002, he has not stopped receiving awards. The latest, in 2017, the Medal of Andalusia.
La Caña Flamenca has had a very lively programme since July. They move under a philosophy that they themselves explain: “To enhance the value of heritage spaces coupled with quality cultural programming, democratize culture, promote Granada flamenco and emerging artists, enhance the value of cultural and monumental heritage, expand the tourist and cultural dimension, contribute so that the cultural industries derived from flamenco and culture are an engine of development in the territory where they operate, generate wealth and improve the cultural life of the inhabitants and maintain a line of educational work, with a stable teaching program.”
