Diego Guerrero, provocateur of exchanges, musical agitator, has always transcended Flamenco in his music. Diego is not only a singer, but also a prolific musical producer, arranger, composer and guitarist, and one of the top references in the world when it comes to the fusion of Flamenco with other genres. The unusual story of this Andalusian native began with his studies in the conservatories of Seville, Granada and Cordoba. By day he worked on majoring in Composition and Orchestral Music, and by night, he immersed himself in the oral tradition of Flamenco, gathered around a fire with a guitar coupled with the characteristic sounds of palmas and Flamenco singing. This duality marked the birth of his daring provocations which bring Flamenco closer to other musical styles.
His debut album, Vengo Caminando, is an eclectic work rooted in Flamenco, yet tastefully opens doors into other styles of music. Its release immediately achieved him status as one of the most important artists of the genre and received international recognition, being nominated by prestigious Latin Grammy Awards in the category of "Best Flamenco Album.” Diego will be accompanied by: Juanfe Pérez (bass); José María Pedraza "Petaca" (piano); Nasrine Rahmani (percussion) and Roque Martínez (sax and flute).
This concert is part of the series Flamenco Eñe organized by Fundación SGAE. Flamenco Festival NY is additionally supported by the Government of Andalusia.
