Loud And Live, the South Florida-based entertainment, marketing and media company, today announced legendary Spanish singer Diego El Cigala‘s upcoming tour which kicks off Wednesday, September 13 in El Paso, Texas at the historic Plaza Theater. The tour, titled Obras Maestras (Masterworks), will take the renowned flamenco singer to fourteen cities in the United States and Canada in less than two months, ending on Sunday, October 15 in Washington DC.
The previous tour of the famed Spanish cantaor of gypsy ancestry, was also presented by Loud And Live last year in ten North American cities to sold-out houses at each presentation. That tour celebrated the twentieth anniversary of the album “Lágrimas Negras” which El Cigala recorded with Cuban musician Bebo Valdés and which would become a true milestone in international music, named Best Album of 2003 by the New York Times, winner of two GRAMMY® awards, the BBC World Music Award, among others, and which has sold more than two million copies worldwide. On this new tour, he highlights songs that came into his life and became essential such as “Corazón loco”, “Historia de un amor” and “Dos Gardenias”, songs that in his voice have reached the level of true “masterworks”.
With a career than spans more than 30 years, Diego El Cigala is the flamenco singer with the greatest international projection. He has won six Latin GRAMMY®s, as well as a GRAMMY® nomination for his album “Indestructible” and another for Best Tropical Solo Artist at the Billboard® Awards. He has sold more than two million albums, and his tours have taken him to more than 30 countries on five continents. He has collaborated with artists such as Bebo Valdés, Alicia Keys, Alejandro Femández, Ricky Martín, Lila Downs, Chavela Vargas, Mercedes Sosa, Mina, Caetano Veloso and Rosario among many others. “Cigala canta a México”, his twelfth album, is a tribute to the music and the people of Mexico.
