María José Llergo

Maria José Llergo’s voice is not only an original take on Spanish folklore but also talks about her profound – and atypical – commitment to art.

Her music stirs hearts and instincts. Flamenco is seasoned with all kinds of sounds free from any traditional constraints… Change the dress, but not the method: allow the music to pass through it and project it wildly. A deep and sincere voice, and at the same time, a close and connected bridge to the past: her memories, her grandparents’ teachings, her Andalusian roots.

In 2021, she was nominated for a Latin Grammy for the song “Mi Huella” alongside Fuel Fandango, has been chosen to showcase at HBO Max’s “Acoustic Home” music documentary series, and was recently nominated for the upcoming 2022 Goya (Spain’s main national annual film awards, awarded by the Academy of Cinematographic Arts and Sciences) for her song “Te espera el mar”, a cry to so many lives lost at sea.

Her first work “Sanación” has been praised by fans and critics on either side of the ocean as one of the best albums of 2020. NPR included it as one of their 25 favorite albums of 2020.

Even though Maria José Llergo’s career has just begun, she is already one of the main strongholds of Spanish music. A fresh new voice aiming high.

Sandra Carrasco feat. David de Arahal

Sandra Carrasco is one of the most versatile singers of her generation and one of those who has taken flamenco further after
being involved in projects with great global references such as Anouska Shankar or Richard Bona. Despite of mastering a wide
range of music genres as bossa nova or jazz, Carrasco has a deep knowledge in flamenco. For her NYC solo debut, Sandra will be
joined by the guitar virtuoso David de Arahal, ‘the future of flamenco guitar’ according to Rafael Riqueni.

Both pay tribute to the inimitable Pepe Marchena with this great, complex and uncompromising proposal. It is not a mere imitation of the great creator of Marchena. It is undoubtedly a reinterpretation of Pepe Marchena, without losing the roots of one of the most loved and at the same time criticized artists in the history of flamenco singing. From deep roots, new flowers. A project, moreover, accessible and modern for all ears.
