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

Seven-time all-Ireland fiddle champion, star of the original Riverdance, and best-selling recording artist Eileen Ivers has been called the Jimi Hendrix of the violin. Ivers and her brilliantly versatile ensemble Immigrant Soul "rock the house everywhere they play" (The Boston Globe) with programs that showcase not only their unique Irish-fusion sound, but also a wide variety of musical styles from around the world. Ivers and her ensemble are joined by Turkish multi-instrumentalist Burhan Ocal, widely regarded as the greatest darbuka (finger drum) player alive today.
