Andalusian Voices – “Tempo de Luz”

Carmen Linares Arcángel Marina Heredia

Thursday, March 15; Wilshire Ebell Theatre, Los Angeles

Tempo of Light (Tempo de Luz) is an all-star show featuring some of the leading voices in Spain today, in a virtuosic display ranging from the gypsy roots of flamenco to modern innovations. Carmen Linares, the legendary grand female voice of flamenco cante jondo (deep song), has been celebrated all over the world for the extraordinary expressive power of her voice. She was the first flamenco singer to perform with the New York Philharmonic Orchestra.

Marina Heredia has a mercurial, impassioned voice, moving between clarity and rasp, sorrow and rage, tragedy and exultation. She is considered one of the world’s foremost female flamenco singers of the new generation.

Versatile singer Arcángel is one of the leading lights of a new generation of vocalists who is making waves internationally with his creative renditions of the classical cante jondo repertoire. He is a tenor with all the dark tension that characterizes the best flamenco singers, transcends flamenco borders with a rich imagination, always grasping the roots. Tempo de Luz 2018 trailer: https://youtu.be/e-uQ26p2q44.
