Her parents named her "Star" ... and with a grandfather, uncles and a father all famous musicians, how could she be anything but? The star in question is Estrella Morente, who has since exceeded every prediction of success to become one of the greatest flamenco vocalists alive today. Celebrated for her fresh approach to flamenco and popular Spanish songs, Morente has a supple and evocative voice, summoning heart-broken regret and boundless joy with equal ease (and often within the same song). So stirring is her voice, that director Pedro Almodóvar included it on the soundtrack to his Oscar-nominated film, Volver. Experience her intense rhythms and moody melodies -- and the accompaniment of a dazzling flamenco guitarist -- when Morente performs live at Cal Performances' Zellerbach Hall. Learn More

It was a great show. I would have enjoyed more of the ladies group Flamenco. Overall a 8 out of 10.
Quotes & Highlights
- "(Porcel possesses) a stamp that differentiates him from the typical dancer, with his breadth and lean profile, his strong dramatic accent that helps him to command respect on the stage." --<em>El Pais </em>(Spain)
Ballet Flamenco José Porcel performs a seductive blend of traditional and modern flamenco, an evocative art form that probably originated around the 15th century, during the Gypsies' encounter with the people of southern Spain. A former principal with the National Ballet of Spain, Porcel has performed to wide acclaim and his lavish music and dance spectacles display both abundant creative genius and a desire to challenge convention while honoring tradition.
